The Post Bank has launched a service for direct money transfers by card number from the MIR cards to the cards of the national payment systems of the CIS countries. You can send or receive money completely online.

According to the Post Bank's press service, the project was implemented jointly with the National Payment Card System. Thanks to the intersystem integration of payment systems, transfers are available to cards of any banks in Uzbekistan and Kyrgyzstan. In the near future, the possibility of quick payments will open up for Tajikistan and Belarus, and in the future - for all other CIS countries.

Funds are transferred using only one requisite - the recipient's card number from the bank's mobile application. You do not need to look for a partner office to make a transfer. Also, upon receipt, you do not need to present additional documents: the money simply goes to the user's card.

The cost of the transfer is 1% (minimum 30 rubles) per transaction. The issue of the MIR card is free, both a resident of the country and a non-resident can issue it.

According to Dmitry Rudenko, Chairman of the Board of the Post Bank, transfers to CIS countries are a promising market. Only in Post Bank the volume of transfers to CIS countries in the first half of 2020 increased by 16% compared to last year. The bank expects that the introduction of a new translation system will increase both the number of international transfers and within the country, as well as increase the number of bank customers.
