When people think of money transfer, they think of sending money to friends and family abroad, making purchases, paying suppliers, amongst other payments. However, not all money transfers go to other people. For many others, money transfer is another way of transferring money to their personal accounts for personal use. 

With Barter, you can transfer money to yourself for whatever reason you may require the money. Barter does not limit you to sending money to your friends and family locally and internationally but to yourself as well.
