My name is Deborah Accos, and recently arrived from France after securing a job in the United States at PayToo Corp. to be in charge of PR and communications. I wanted to share my personal experience to which a lot of readers can relate and introduce the perfect solution to the difficulties I came across.
Before I left France I wanted to set everything up in order to make things easier for me once in the US, and of course, came the bank account issue.
How am I going to transfer money from France to the United States? How am I going to be paid?How am I going to cover all my expenses?
One option is to open an international bank account but it is costly. My bank also offers the possibility to subscribe at an international option. But I will just be able to withdraw my money and pay with a credit card. It will be impossible for me to get my salary deposited into this account, to deposit money, or use the bank account as a tool to improve my credit rating if long term I wanted to stay in the US. Hence my only option is to open a US bank account once I arrive and that is not the easiest thing.
Therefore, I was not able to have everything done before my departure.
As previously mentioned, my job opportunity was at PAYTOO Corp. PAYTOO Corp. is a US company that launched the first mobile wallet, PAYTOO Mobile Wallet™. This unique mobile wallet allows the customer to have a prepaid or virtual MasterCard, to create gift cards, to pay merchants and to withdraw money from an ATM without the need of a traditional credit or debit card
PAYTOO caters not only to the needs of the unbanked people all around the world but to everyone else’s as well! As an ex-patriate, PAYTOO Mobile Wallet is THE best solution for me to easily manage my money, thanks to lower fees and easy usage. It offers a range of services such as Bill Payment, Phone Top Up, Sending Money, Paying a Merchant, and withdraw money from an ATM without the need of a traditional credit or debit card and I can actually receive my salary directly into my Wallet if I choose to.
In July 2014, PAYTOO launched its first cardless ATM, a solution to withdraw money for a minimal $2.50 fee instead of the $3 charged by others banks.
Stay tuned! In my next article I will share with you my experience of my first utilization of the PAYTOO Mobile Wallet™.
