Newark, NJ, Dec. 29, 2023 — BOSS Money, the money transfer service of IDT Corporation (NYSE: IDT), today announced that its international money remittance business increased revenue by 56% during the eleven days up to and including Christmas Day 2023 compared to the same period a year earlier.
“Throughout 2023, our low fees and favorable exchange rates in combination with the terrific user experience our customers enjoy on the BOSS Money apps and through our retailers helped to drive our growth at rates well above the industry’s average,” said Bill Pereira, IDT’s Chief Operating Officer. “This Christmas season we achieved exceptional revenue increases with terrific holiday promotions and expect to continue to deliver revenue and transaction year-over-year growth rates over 30% in the coming months.”
BOSS Money revenue increased by 56% from December 15th through the 25th compared to the same period a year earlier. During the same period, transaction volumes increased by 39%.
