Velmie, a financial technology provider that has been developing advanced software solutions for financial institutions and entrepreneurs for over a decade, expands its range of white-label products with an international money transfer platform. It will enable quicker international transactions at a fraction of the cost of other international money transfers and cross-border payment options.
Remittance Solutions Powering Businesses Globally
Every year hundreds of billions of dollars are transferred internationally by businesses and individuals who have emigrated from their home countries. World Bank figures show that total annual remittance flows amounted to $689 billion in 2018, growing from $633 billion in 2017.
Banks, the most expensive remittance channel, according to the Bank, charging an average fee of 11%. Post offices followed, costing more than 7%. Fees on international bank transfers have been such a concern for United Nations that it has set a 2030 Sustainable Development Goals' target to reduce remittance transaction costs to less than 3% from their current estimated average of 7.1%.
With the advent of mobile wallets, however, a huge change is underway in how cross-border payments and transfers are made. E-wallets are becoming the most efficient, transparent, and secure way to facilitate international payments.
The key benefit for individuals and businesses making cross-border payments via mobile money transfer apps and remittance platforms is that costs are substantially lower. Moreover, the payments are far quicker than conventional bank international payments or money transfers. The process is also more convenient and less administratively intensive.
Velmie Decides to Launch a White-label Money Transfer Platform
In response to the significant potential demand and benefits of mobile cross-border payments, Velmie introduces its white-label remittance platform. It's a cloud-native, modular and scalable software that helps our clients launch their products within an average of 3 months while being cost-effective and 100% customizable.
