According to LinkedIn, Damane Cash offers financial services via its network of branches and digital means.
These services include receiving international money transfers, domestic money transfers, currency exchange, payment of bills and taxes, and opening payment accounts and mobile payment services.
The Moroccan fintech company provides local services through its network of retailers (grocers, small businesses, cybercafés, convenience stores, etc).
Paysend was created in April 2017. The firm says it can send money to over 150 countries.
Last month, Paysend launched Paysend Business, a new product for SMEs.
This allows SMEs to send, hold and receive digital payments via several payment gateways (e.g., Apple Pay and Google Pay) and in over 38 currencies.
SMEs will also be able to create a checkout option for their customers through plugin integrations with e-commerce platforms such as WooCommerce.
