I have never used Western Union nor MoneyGram to send money, but CNN money transfer will definitely make it easy to send money across the world. Sending money using other platforms has always been a knock on the head since the charges are usually high and hard to avoid.

CNN was licensed to launch CNN money transfers that will offer consumers a highly competitive service to transfer money without paying commission and the higher exchange rates often charged by mainstream banks. The payment tool is managed by moneycorp which is an award-winning international payments and foreign exchange specialist.

Basically, the main reason why technology is taking root around the globe is the fact that it’s convenient and reliable. To uplift that in the financial sector, CNN money transfer will be available on desktop and mobile devices to enhance to ever growing digitally-driven financial tech sector. To expand the CNN brand, the solution targets to generate additional revenue streams in areas of English language learning and international money transfers through two new partnerships.

CNN is also working with Germany-based learning solutions provider, to launch a dynamic English language learning service – CNN Learn English. Available on desktop and mobile, the subscription-based digital service will facilitate English language learning by overlaying CNN video content with’s unique translation and learning aids. Content is focused on finance and business, spanning a range of subject matters and a variety of dialects.

Tailored to enable the learning of business-level English, CNN Learn English will be available globally to consumers directly or to companies wishing to up skill its workforce.
