Residents of remote villages will be able to withdraw cash in stores
Sberbank customers who live in remote locations will be able to withdraw cash directly from stores. Such a service can be used by MIR card holders at retail outlets that are partners of the bank.
According to the press service of the credit organization, soon the restrictions will be lifted and holders of national payment cards of other banks will be able to use the service. This will increase the level of financial accessibility in different regions of the country and will form the habit of MIR owners to use the card for settlement in stores.
In order to participate in the program, the store needs to receive the status of a bank payment agent, and the bank should finalize the terminal equipment. Currently, more than four thousand outlets in sparsely populated areas where there are no ATMs and branches have entered into an agreement and provide similar services to customers.
Initially, the service only allowed to withdraw cash. However, in October last year, the opportunity arose to pay for utilities, fixed communications and other services in the store not only with MIR cards, but also with Visa and Mastercard. Sberbank clarifies that expanding the network of payment agents is a priority, specialists conduct training for store staff, provide technical support and information support.
