Today, Ria is a recognized leader in the money transfer industry with a growing network comprised of thousands of Agents and Correspondents around the globe. Ria is a subsidiary of Euronet Worldwide, Inc. Known for fast, dependable money transfer services; Ria uses simple, efficient electronic processing to help people send money to all corners of the world.
2 Why should I consider becoming a Ria Agent?
Ria offers you a "turnkey operation." We provide you with all of the materials, support and training you'll need to operate a money transfer business. By becoming a Ria Agent, you are gaining a source of profit that will enhance and complement your current business.
3 What will it cost me?
Nothing. There are no startup fees. There is no inventory or equipment to purchase and no fee for training. Everything you need, including world-class customer support, plus the benefits of Ria's promotional advertising and point-of-purchase posters and flyers, is supplied to you at no cost.
4 How do I get started?
Once your application has been reviewed and approved, you are well on your way. A sales support representative will be in touch with you in a timely manner. Upon approval the next steps are generally that Ria will install a computer, printer and/or a fax machine to accommodate order processing. The sales support representative will then take you step-by-step through the money transfer process, and will even show you how easy it is to handle problem situations. You'll have a reliable customer support team available to you and your customers day and night, seven days a week. Posters, flyers and Ria signage will identify you as an authorized Ria Agent, and you'll be in business.
5 How will operating a money transfer business affect my existing business?
There's no disruption to your regular business. In fact, Ria Agents usually find that handling money transfers enhances their business by bringing in new customers. The transactions are swift, usually taking less than two minutes to complete. Once a transfer is entered on the system and transmitted, our Operations Department carefully checks the transaction for accuracy and completeness. You simply hand the customer the receipt along with the assurance that the money will reach its destination.
6 Will there be piles of paperwork?
No. Paperwork is kept to a minimum. User-friendly computers let you send and store transaction information electronically. The customer receives a receipt, which lists the Ria customer service phone number. If the customer has any questions, he or she can contact a customer service representative day or night, seven days a week. Once you've processed the order, we handle the rest.
7 Will I really make money with Ria?
That will depend in part on you; but remember, Ria has an established reputation for fast, reliable service. Simply putting up a Ria sign in your front window can attract new business.
Plus, our competitive pricing structure and special offers make Ria services extremely attractive to customers - that's a big advantage to your business. In addition, we offer you a generous commission structure that is more competitive than many other companies.
8 Do some local money transfer companies offer higher commissions?
While some smaller, local companies may offer slightly higher commissions, it is usually due to the fact that their Agents don't have the same volume of business as Ria Agents, the same customer service resources, compliance capabilities, technical resources and/or promotional support. Not only does our worldwide service accommodate more customers and offer more destination countries, our reputation for service and reliability offers a promise of security to customers.
9 What kind of advertising support will I get?
We believe that running promotional advertising keeps the Ria name in people's minds and helps drive customers to you. We are continuously evolving our marketing programs to keep pace with changing trends and consumer behaviors. Our advertising efforts range from newspaper to radio, transit advertising to television. All in-store promotional materials are supplied to you. In addition, a cooperative advertising program provides qualifying Agents with added dollars to support local market advertising.
