ATLANTA – August 25, 2022 – As the demand for cross-border payments continues to grow, Brightwell, an Atlanta-based global payments technology company, announced today the availability of ReadyRemit. This comprehensive remittance engine enables FinTechs to capitalize on the digital payments market quickly and easily, building a new revenue stream and driving customer loyalty*.
The demand for cross-border remittance payments is growing exponentially. In 2022, remittances to low-and-middle-income countries like India, Mexico, China and the Philippines are expected to reach $630 billion, a 4% increase from the previous year. However, capitalizing on the international remittance market is full of complications - including costly and time-consuming licensing, compliance, product development, marketing, support, technological infrastructure and risk management. As a result, traditional financial institutions and money transfer giants have long dominated the cross-border payments market.
"FinTechs have a unique opportunity to disrupt the remittance industry, which historically has been inundated with issues around cost, speed and transparency," said Hal Ramakers, senior vice president of global solutions, Brightwell. "However, building a comprehensive remittance program is no small lift. At Brightwell, we understand the arduous process of building a compliant and user-friendly payment solution. With ReadyRemit, we've made it easier than ever for FinTechs to drive revenue and loyalty from cross-border payments."
