About Oxigen USA

About Oxigen USA

Oxigen USA is the only one-stop-shop for sending digital payments, gifts, and money to India. Oxigen is India’s largest payment solutions provider and leading mobile wallet, and Oxigen USA extends Oxigen’s services globally. Our mission is to maximize happiness for Indians everywhere!

Unlike other money transfer companies that only allow you to send money, Oxigen enables you to Send Happiness®. Spare your loved ones the time and hassle of picking up cash and paying their monthly bills – commuting in traffic, waiting in line, paying extra fees. Instantly pay their mobile, landline, Internet, TV, electricity, and gas bills, which they’d end up spending 30% of your money transfer on anyway. Surprise them with an instant gift card, a chocolate birthday cake, or a bouquet of flowers. Of course, you can also send them some money too at the highest True Exchange Rate. This kind of shopping cart experience enabling multiple kinds of transfers to multiple recipients is only possible through Oxigen.

And each time you Send Happiness®, you'll earn Reward Points that you can redeem for discounts and you’ll increase the Happiness Meter of your recipients. You can also play the Game of Happiness to multiply your rewards as you level up from the lower ranks of House Spark to Lord of House Champion!

Oh and don’t forget to follow us on Facebook for exclusive discount codes and fun NRI news.
