International Money Order
This is the electronic sending and receiving of money. Currently we are in service with Tanzania and Uganda, and as soon as possible we will be in service with Burundi and Kenya.
IFS Light has a wide range of function, including:
Money order data collection, such as registration of any processing up to the final payment, reimbursement or cancellation of the transaction
Tracking and tracing of individual transaction or groups of transactions
Money order service monitoring
The International Financial System application (IFS) is a software application developed by the PTC to help Posts replace their traditional paper money order services with electronic money order services. . IFS uses electronic data interchange (EDI) to send international money order data electronically, using sophisticated data encryption techniques to ensure the integrity of the data sent over the postal network.
The IFS Light application infrastructure is hosted by the PTC and Posts only have to access the Web interface, via the Internet, to perform daily operational tasks of money order purchases, cancellations, reimbursements and payments
