According to Marc Rennard, Executive Vice President for Orange’s Africa and Middle-East region, “We are proud to unveil this partnership with Total as we are creating synergies between two major groups in Africa and the Middle-East to better serve consumers. This agreement will add a whole new dimension to the Orange Money distribution network.”

“I am delighted with this partnership, which allows Total to further expand the range of products and services we offer across our entire distribution network. It’s a new example of our ability to innovate and anticipate our customers’ needs,” added Nguer.

Orange Money is Orange’s payment and money transfer service for Africa and the Middle-East. It enables Orange customers to transfer money from mobile to mobile, to pay bills and even withdraw and deposit money through a network of certified distributors.

This partnership will extend Orange Money’s distribution network to all TOTAL service stations in the 13 countries where the service is available, further improving the service provided to customers of Orange and Total, both in terms of proximity and ease of use. Customers will benefit from the density of the TOTAL distribution network, its service stations open for extended hours seven days a week; they will be able to open an Orange Money account on site and perform withdrawals and deposits.

This deal is already operational in Senegal and Cameroon, and will go live in over 1300 service stations in the 11 other countries where both groups are present in the second half of 2013. A second stage will follow, which should enable Orange Money customers to pay for purchases made in TOTAL service stations using their mobile account.
