Yandex.Money Accepts Banking Cards of All Russian Banks

Internet, June 9, 2010. Starting from today, Yandex.Money users can easily top-up their e-wallets using a banking card of any Russian bank. Now all operations within Yandex.Money payment system can be done online, without having to leave your chair.

To top up their e-wallet users should only once link their Yandex.Money account to their banking card. This can be done in any of 200 offices of Alfa-Bank in more than 60 cities and towns of Russia. After that, users will be able to instantly transfer funds from their banking card to their Yandex.Money account at any time. Any Visa or MasterCard bank card allowing to make payments through the Internet can be linked to Yandex.Money account. The commission for transferring money to e-accounts is 3.25%.

“Using Yandex.Money users could make purchases right from their desktop”, says Jane Zavalishina, CEO of Yandex.Money. “But to top up their accounts, they had to physically go to an ATM or a kiosk where they could buy a prepayment e-card. And only clients of several banks – partners of Yandex.Money, could top up their e-accounts online. Now our Yandex.Money e-payment system has become truly online for millions of banking card holders.”

“First of all, we focus on customer needs in our work. Now we are happy to offer to all banking card holders a universal and secure system which can be used to safely top up their Yandex.Money e-accounts. A user will need to only once link his or her banking card to Yandex.Money e-account in any of Alfa-Bank offices located all over Russia”, explains Igor Arefiev, Head of e-commerce department of Alfa-Bank. “Making purchases through the Internet is becoming more and more popular. I am sure that our service will be in demand and highly appreciated.”
