"The International Credit Transfer is designed understanding the growing need of the expat community of gifting airtime to their loved ones back home or recharging their own prepaid account while roaming in UAE. It was essential to offer value to the recipient and the sender guaranteeing security and privacy of the transaction."- Khaled El Khouly, Chief Marketing Officer
"Communication is vital for all families, especially those who are separated from their loved ones due to work abroad. Merchantrade has worked hard to give value added services to the migrant workers’ community in Malaysia, now numbering some 2.3 million. With this new offering of international airtime transfer, we are now able to further help migrants stay in touch with their families overseas."
