VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA -- (Marketwired) -- 06/19/13 -- As a leading online money transfer solution, nTrust has joined forces with Ukash, the global online cash provider, to supply consumers with convenient and secure ways to store, spend and send money online. The partnership will allow nTrust users to deposit money using their Ukash vouchers - a fast and easy way to move cash without a bank or credit card.

Available to nTrust users, the new deposit method provides greater online money transfer and payment options to customers from over 35 countries around the world. As a result, Great Britain Pound (GBP) and European Currency (EUR) have been added to nTrust's multi-currency offerings, which currently include: Canadian Dollar, US Dollar, Australian Dollar, and Philippine Peso.

"The partnership with Ukash was, in some ways, an obvious one," said Robert MacGregor, founder and CEO of nTrust. "Ukash has been an innovator since its inception. With this integration, nTrust's users can now use Ukash to deposit funds without having to provide credit or bank card information, making the nTrust platform even more accessible to those who do not wish to share banking details, or those of our customers that have no access to traditional banking."

Malcolm Berg, Director of Merchant Services for Ukash, explains, "Our collaboration with nTrust will give more choice to consumers around the world who may not use traditional banking facilities and who prefer to make online payments using cash to do so securely and conveniently."

To celebrate the new venture, Ukash and nTrust are giving away one thousand Canadian dollars to one lucky winner. nTrust users will automatically be entered into the prize draw by making a deposit to their online Vault using a Ukash code. The competition is open to residents of Canada only and will run until June 26, 2013 with the winner announced on Monday, July 1st, 2013, Canada Day.
