More than 3 thousand agent points in the village appeared at Sberbank
More than three thousand outlets in 76 regions of Russia have become Sberbank's banking agents in remote and sparsely populated areas where there are no offices and ATMs. In the Far East, 120 outlets are connected to the service, including 24 in the Khabarovsk Territory, seven in the Jewish Autonomy, 30 in Primorye, 39 in the Amur Region, ten in the Sakhalin Region, two in the Magadan Region and eight in Kamchatka.
Customers can withdraw cash without a commission in rural stores, making a minimum purchase. The project of Sberbank on the development of an agent network was launched in 2018. In test mode, at the end of last year, 118 agent outlets were opened, by September 1, 2019 their number reached 1, and in December 270 exceeded three thousand.
With the increase in the number of agent points, their functionality is growing. According to the press service of the bank, initially it was only possible to withdraw cash from the card, however, in October of this year, it became possible to pay for utilities, fixed communications, etc. You can pay for the service by barcode from the receipt or by selecting the recipient from the list in the online cashier of the store. As in the bank’s office, a check is issued to the client to confirm the operation.
New opportunities are already available at 108 agent points, and in 2020 the bank plans to connect all agent points to receiving payments, including in the Far East. In the new year, it is planned to do such bank card issuance, insurance, etc. at agent points.
