For most people, the chance to study or live abroad is a dream come true—the excitement of leaving the nest to fly off somewhere far and unfamiliar, meeting new people, learning different languages, and embracing other cultures is an experience like no other, and something one must discover for themselves.

But to traverse the world without worry, we must first have the funds to do so. After all, money does make the globe go round!

And although we currently live in an internet-connected age where we can have instant access to goods, services and information on the go, sending and receiving money around the world can be a headache to get around.

This is because international payments and transactions have to go through multiple processes before the money transfer is completed.

This process would often enforce unnecessary fees for people making cross-border transactions and give little control over when your money gets to its intended destination. Not to mention the hassle of having to calculate those exchange rates in your head…

But, the good news is that there are faster and cheaper ways for us to send and spend money across the world without worry.
