The Nation - - ASEAN ECONOMIC COMMUNITY -

In­done­sia’s state-owned lender Bank Mandiri has signed a co­op­er­a­tion agree­ment with state-owned postal com­pany PT Pos In­done­sia to en­able its cus­tomers to top up their pre-paid e-money cards at all out­lets of the postal com­pany across the coun­try.

“Bank Mandiri will also co­op­er­ate with other or­gan­i­sa­tions to give cus­tomers more al­ter­na­tives to top up their cards,” Mandiri se­nior ex­ec­u­tive vice pres­i­dent for con­sumer and trans­ac­tion Jas­min said on the side­lines of the re­cent sign­ing cer­e­mony in Jakarta.

Cur­rently, cus­tomers can top up their e-money cards at the bank’s ATMs and at In­do­mart con­ve­nience stores.

Jas­min claimed that Mandiri was a pi­o­neer in the use of pre-paid cards in In­done­sia. As of De­cem­ber 2018, the bank had is­sued 16.4 mil­lion e-money cards, which can be used with more than 45,000 mer­chants.

The bank has opened 60,000 top-up lo­ca­tions at its own branches, ATMs and min­i­mar­kets.

The num­ber of trans­ac­tions us­ing the e-money cards was 1.1 bil­lion in 2018 with a to­tal value of 13.4 tril­lion ru­piah (US$952.99 mil­lion).

Mean­while, PT Pos In­done­sia fi­nan­cial di­rec­tor Eddi San­tosa said the com­pany has 4,800 out­lets across the coun­try. – The Jakarta Post
