Uzbekistan to benefit from Payme’s launch of transfers from international cards to Uzcard

Payme has announced that Visa, MasterCard and Mir card holders can now transfer funds to Uzcard, with funds being automatically converted into the local currency. To receive a transfer, the user of the Uzcard application needs to request an amount and indicate the card to which the money will be sent. The system will then create a check and send a request for authorization to the international card holder. The sender does not need to download the Payme application; they just need to enter the required data sent via a link.

While transfers are currently only available from the international cards to Uzcard, the company plans on launching outgoing transfers from a local card to an international one in the near future. The company also has plans to connect JCB and China Union Pay cards to the system as well.
