Attention, 2020 is just around the corner!

We are now entering New Year territory and ask system participants to get ready to hear the annual company results, and to receive New Year wishes.

2019 proved to be a very eventful year.

Once again we expanded our geographical borders – WebMoney entered Uzbekistan and introduced WMY-wallet in the local currency, Uzbekistani som. And in Kazakhstan, we significantly increased the number of top-up and payment services. The system also introduced a new type of wallet denominated in Russian Rubles, WMP. This wallet is available not only for Russians but also for citizens of Ukraine and Belarus, and next year it will be available for residents from other countries, where WebMoney registrars are present.

It is now easier to pass identification and obtain an Initial WebMoney Passport with VideoID, as you will only need your citizen passport, a camera device and a few minutes of your time.

Our list of mobile applications is replenished with WebMoney Keeper Pro with extended functionality. At the same time, standard WebMoney Keeper application added such features as sending and receiving your location with photo and video files attached and many others.

The upgraded WebMoney Events socio-business network now supports live streaming, reposts, a lightweight markup language called 'Markdown', and group chats.

Transfer of funds within the system and beyond has become more convenient! It is now possible to send funds to WebMoney wallets and to Sberbank with a mobile number.

Also, payments by QR-code from WebMoney wallet were launched in Burger King restaurants. By the way, have you seen our comedy video with more than a million views?

The important highlight of the year for us was the 40 millionth registration.

We thank the system participants for their trust. `Live long and prosper`, as the Star Trek  hero said. See you in 2020!


Announcement for R-wallet users

We inform that the legal framework of the WebMoney Transfer system has been changed in terms of WMR property rights issued on R-wallets based on the regulator requirements pursuant to Russian Federal Law No. 161-FZ dated June 27, 2011 “About the National Payment System”.

In connection with the foregoing, we inform that:

• From August 1st, 2019, P-wallets will be introduced to WebMoney Transfer system, which will contain funds in Russian rubles (WMP – e-money in Russian rubles) issued by JSC Bank KKB in accordance with the Rules.

• P-wallet will be created by the system on the terms of a public offer about the provision of information and technological services at WebMoney Transfer system with P-type wallets. P-wallet will be also replenished automatically with the amount of the ECP (electronic check) system participant (R-wallet) by transferring the ECP to the ECP holder (WMP) during the period from 01.08.2019 to 01.09.2019. At the same time, from August 1st, 2019, registration of new R-wallets will be discontinued, and existing R-wallets will be transferred to the archive upon reaching zero balance (an operational report for them will be available in the service).

• During the transition period from August 1st to October 1st, 2019 inclusive, the traditional methods for withdrawal from R-wallets with a non-zero balance will remain. At the same period time, it will be also possible to transfer funds from R to P-wallets of the same user without any commission. 

• After October 1st, 2019, it will be only possible to withdraw funds from R-wallets to a ruble bank account specified by a WebMoney Transfer system user. The withdrawal will be possible exclusively by submitting ECP (WMR) for payment to JSC Network Clearing House in the order specified by the law. Before the withdrawal, the user shall pass full identification in accordance with the Russian Federal Law of August 7, 2001 No. 115-FZ “On Combating Legalization (Laundering) of Proceeds from Crime and Financing of Terrorism”.

WebMoney Transfer guarantees the safety and integrity of the property rights of the system users.
