Companies in Kazakhstan to Accept Yandex.Money
November 22, 2012
Starting today, people living in Kazakhstan can use Yandex.Money to pay for mobile phones, TV, and internet. Service providers such as KCell, Beeline, Tele2, Alma-TV, DigitalTV and others have already partnered with Yandex.Money.
Users can pay for the companies’ services with both Yandex.Money and bank cards linked to their accounts (cards issued by any bank in Kazakhstan can be linked). Payments are transferred immediately, at any time of day. This is especially convenient if your cell phone balance unexpectedly runs low or you urgently need to access the internet.
Yandex.Money has been offering its services to users in Kazakhstan since 2011 and is constantly adding new features. Such features include transferring Yandex.Money to a Visa or MasterCard and issuing Yandex.Money bank cards, which allow users to pay at any store, restaurant, or cinema straight from their e-wallets. Additionally, last year Yandex.Money began adding new locations in Kazakhstan for users to deposit money to their accounts. Among these are Alliance Bank, CONTACT system offices, and Quickpay payment kiosks. Kazakhstanis most frequently use Yandex.Money to buy online games, entertainment-related goods, paid features on social networks, and online advertising.
