Xoom Corporation Key Developments

Xoom Launches Operations in Estonia

Xoom launched operations in Estonia. The list of new countries includes Estonia, Finland and Lithuania.

Xoom Launches New Mobile Recharge Service to Singapore

Xoom announced the launch of Xoom Mobile Recharge service to Singapore. The service enables customers to instantly send airtime credit (recharge) online from the U.S. to prepaid mobile phones from three of the large providers in Singapore – M1, SingTel and StarHub. The company's new Mobile Recharge to Singapore augments company's traditional bank-to-bank transfer service with a very convenient, secure and inexpensive way for customers to provide additional support to their loved ones in Singapore. For example, users can opt to send a traditional money transfer to mom or dad and then send phone recharges to other relatives or friends – all with Xoom. Plus, Xoom customers don’t have to waste time driving to the store and standing in lines since they can instantly recharge their families’ phones from their desktops or their mobile phones through the mobile app. Xoom offers a range of recharge amounts from SGD 3.50 to SGD 1,000. A user only needs a U.S. bank account, debit card or credit card to send a recharge through the Xoom platform. The moment airtime is credited to a prepaid mobile phone account, a free in-language text message is sent to the recipient with confirmation that their account has been recharged and the amount of the recharge. The company securely auto-saves the transaction information, including the mobile number, payment method and amount sent, enabling repeat transactions to be sent.
