Guaranteed and secure money transfers in 24 hours
Now available over the internet, mobile phone and UK agency network
Aims to legitimise money transfers without traditional costs

May 28th 2008, Macclesfield, Cheshire. Sendcashhome.com has launched a pioneering cash transfer service for the Polish community.

Unlike alternative services there is no fee for either the transaction or cost to users from an unfavourable exchange rate and offers a secure, guaranteed and convenient route to transfer UK funds to any Polish bank account using either a network of retail agents or, now, direct over the web using a computer or mobile phone.

The UK launch follows an extensive development and roll-out programme with Polish communities across the UK. “The response has been overwhelming since our initial pilot in Crewe, where the support we received from the council in reaching out to the Polish community was outstanding. Our goal is to provide a service that legitimises money transfers to Poland that support the new economic infrastructure resulting from its accession to the EU. Our original pilot project has grown quickly across ten cities – helping the UK Polish community send considerable sums of money home reliably and without the excessive cost burden of big name service operators,” comments Mark Hodkin marketing co-ordinator for sendcashhome.com.

Directly resulting from the initial feedback it was clear that to be effective for the Polish community not only had the Sendcashhome.com website to be available in both English and Polish languages, but also offer bi-lingual customer support services to help with payments needing to be forwarded to several separate family members or accounts.

A significant advantage of the service is that it offers a faster and risk free alternative to the practice of sending cash direct to Poland to take advantage of better bank exchange rates and avoid what are significant costs traditionally associated with money transfer services.

“Because of the barriers in terms of language and the sheer cost of money transfers some crazy money schemes are operating, usually involving bundles of cash, socks and long distance lorry drivers. It's little wonder then that news of a secure, no cost service for Poles to send cash home has spread so quickly,” adds Hodkin.

The company's also looking to continue to strengthen its retail agency network beyond its current base in the North and Midlands. Tomasz Kudzia who runs a Polish retail network in Liverpool, Bolton and Crewe has already been convinced of the service's benefits, “This solves one of the biggest problems our customers face – paying mortgages in Poland and putting cash into the accounts of family members at home. It's already strengthened our relationship with customers and formed an important part of our business both in generating store traffic and helping us pay our Polish suppliers. It's remarkable considering the exchange rates our customers get are better than those offered by the high street banks,” adds Tomasz.
