Today, we are excited to let you know that we are releasing a new feature that will let Abra customers fund their Abra wallet using an eligible American Express Card. (Eligible Cards are American Express U.S. Consumer Cards, American Express-branded Cards issued by third parties and American Express reloadable prepaid Cards.)
With this new funding option, American Express Card Members can now add funds to their Abra wallets immediately and send payments worldwide. This feature will be made available to a small group of Abra wallet users today and will be rolled out to our entire user base in the coming days.
Abra customers who are not yet American Express Card Members can sign up for a Card online or, for a reloadable prepaid Card, register online or visit a participating retailer to purchase a prepaid Card with cash. (You can find a list of the American Express Cards that are accepted at the end of this blog post.)
Send money anywhere, instantly
Instant funding with American Express cards makes it easier and faster than ever to send money worldwide. Payments and remittances that used to take days now take just minutes to receive. Abra recipients can use our network of Tellers in hundreds of cities worldwide to withdraw their funds as cash or withdraw funds to a bank account in the US and the Philippines. And with growing acceptance of bitcoin by major retailers and vendors worldwide, it is getting easier to spend funds directly from your Abra wallet every day.
