all_mobile_app_0512_2014

With $1.5 billion in mobile volume processed in the past 12 months, Xoom is poised for further growth.

SAN FRANCISCO, CA, May 13, 2014 – Xoom Corporation (NASDAQ: XOOM), a leading digital money transfer provider, today announced a major upgrade to the Xoom App that allows Xoom customers to sign up and send money from their mobile devices to friends and family members instantly at the outset, not only to existing recipients.

Since its launch in June 2013, Xoom repeat customers have been using the Xoom App to send money to their existing recipients. Now, in a few simple steps, Xoom’s new App release allows money senders to sign up and send money to someone new for the first time — in addition to any existing recipients – using iOS or Android mobile devices. To send to new recipients, users provide information about how much to send, recipient details and method of payment and then the money is on its way.

Repeat Xoom customers continue to enjoy the Xoom App for best-in-class mobile money transfer. The Xoom App is unique in its simplicity, allowing Xoom customers to complete a “Quick Send” in seconds to their existing recipients in a novel “one tap and one swipe” technique.

In the 12 months ending March 31, 2014, Xoom processed $1.5 billion in mobile volume and in Q1-2014, 45 percent of Xoom transactions were sent via mobile devices.

“The App upgrade presents a tremendous opportunity for Xoom,” said Joe Raymond, Xoom’s Vice President of Product. “In keeping with our mission of creating a seamless customer experience across our platform, our upgrade will make it faster and easier for new users to send money for the first time directly from the Xoom App, a major step forward for our mobile offering. We believe this enhanced customer experience will make it even easier for new users to send money to friends and family.”

Xoom offers customers a Spanish-language experience on its App, desktop and mobile sites and via Xoom’s 24-hour customer care center.  In addition to fast and simple money transfers on-the-go, Xoom customers can use the App to track the status of their money transfer as their money moves to their loved ones.  Other key features of the Xoom App include the ability to review Xoom’s low fees, check exchange rates, contact customer service and access links to other Xoom services.

The Xoom App is available at the Apple AppStore and Google Play.

Xoom launches new, easy-to-use mobile site

Xoom launches new, easy-to-use mobile site

Xoom, a leading online money transfer company, already makes it easy for you to send money around the world, and it’s getting even simpler with the launch of its new mobile website. Now Xoom customers can make a mobile money transfer right from their iPhone, Android or other smartphone.

Sending money from an iPhone, Droid or Blackberry with Xoom’s new mobile money transfer site is just as safe and secure as online banking. Furthermore, it won’t take up any memory because it can be accessed from your phone’s web browser, so you’ll have plenty of space for Angry Birds and Paper Toss.

Having both Xoom’s mobile site and mobile banking at your fingertips wherever you go makes it easy to check your bank account balance before you send money. For instance, if you deposit a check, you can click into your mobile banking app to see if it has cleared yet. If not, you can always visit the mobile Xoom site and schedule a transfer to occur when you know the check will be cleared.

With just a few taps of the screen you can easily find out when your international money transfer has taken place. Xoom’s mobile site allows users to check the status of their transfers, which can take as little as a few minutes to reach their destinations.

Customers can also use the mobile site to find out about transfer fees and keep an eye on exchange rates. This can be especially helpful as exchange rates are changing constantly. By using the mobile site, Xoom customers can ensure that they get the best exchange rates by making a money transfer when the rates are low. Scheduling a transfer will also lock in these rates so even if you are not ready to send money online, you can still lock in the low rate.

Xoom’s mobile site offers all of the same options as the full website, which even includes choosing how the recipient receives their funds. Customers can choose between sending money online to banks or one of Xoom’s many locations worldwide so the recipient can pick up their funds directly. They also have the choice of sending money directly to their loved one’s bank account, making it easy for them to access the funds from any ATM.
