WebMoney Transfer has joined the Faster Payments System (FPS) of the Bank of Russia. Owners of WMP wallets can now instantly send funds to 38 banks-participants of the FPS, and receive incoming transfers. The clearing bank of WebMoney for wallets in Russian Rubles is JSC Bank `CCB`.
Using the FPS, funds to a WebMoney wallet can be added free of charge. The commission fee for transferring funds to other banks is 1.2 % plus the system`s service charge of 0.8%.
Clients of the FSP-participants have the option of transferring funds to a WebMoney wallet with the recipient`s mobile number by selecting the relevant option in their banking app.
To use the service, owners of an electronic wallet need to go to the `Transfer` menu, select `By phone number` and then `Via the Faster Payments System` of the mobile app or the web version of WebMoney Keeper.
Remember that from 2019 system participants can transfer funds with a mobile number between WebMoney and Sberbank.
