Send money to a mobile wallet.
A handy option for transferring money quickly and easily is sending money to a mobile wallet. A mobile wallet is an electronic account linked to a person's mobile phone. It can then be used just like cash to pay for goods and services. You can use your card to send money to a friend or family member's mobile wallet.
