Finding the Right Partners for Faster Connections

With help from Ripple, Sentbe is providing a faster, low cost and convenient way for Korea’s large population of migrant workers to send money home to their families. The service wanted to overcome common challenges around remittances including hidden costs, multi-day transaction times and an inconvenient experience for both senders and receivers. Being part of RippleNet gives Sentbe a single, standardized way to integrate with a wide network of banks and financial institutions in the region. These new partnerships help the service hedge FX more efficiently and optimize routing to reduce costs and improve speeds, while allowing customers to complete transactions online or from their mobile devices.
