MoneyGram Signs Contract With BP Franchise Ampm To Give Consumers Access To International Money Transfer Services

MoneyGram (NYSE:MGI), a leading global money transfer company, and ampm, BP’s popular West Coast convenience store franchise, have reached an agreement to offer MoneyGram’s full suite of consumer products at participating ampm locations in the Western United States, the companies announced today.

Under the agreement, BP is promoting, on an exclusive basis, MoneyGram’s money transfer services, bill payments, money orders and prepaid cards to its network of more than 950 ampm franchises throughout Arizona, California, Nevada, Oregon and Washington. ampm franchisees are actively enrolling in the program, and locations will launch MoneyGram services throughout the coming months.

According to Pete Ohser, MoneyGram senior vice president, U.S. and Canada, “MoneyGram’s primary focus is to provide consumers with the most simple and convenient ways to send money and conduct basic financial transactions, from paying a utility bill or managing their pre-paid cards,” he said. “Winning ampm’s business and establishing relationships with great companies and strong brands such as BP’s ampm convenience stores are important to MoneyGram’s growth.”
