OKLink makes US$100 million of cross-border transfers free for global remittance companies

On 12 October 2016, OKLink announced at the Global Payment Summit in Singapore that we will subsidize all fees on the first US$100,000 of cross-border transfers for every partner on the OKLink network, up to a total of US$100 million. The initiative incentivizes money transfer companies to offer their customers the cheapest, fastest, and most transparent global remittance services.

We currently offer payouts in fifteen countries across Asia, the Americas and Africa.

Participating companies on OKLink will be able to service individual payouts at the mid-market exchange rate for the first US$100,000 of transactions. Every transaction under US$1000 to a unique recipient will qualify for the subsidy. Eligible companies must sign up by December 31, 2016 and have until March 31, 2017 to complete the free transfers. We will rebate partners on a monthly basis.

Chief Strategy Officer Jack C. Liu comments on the initiative, “The world’s financial transfers run on antiquated technology built nearly half a century ago. Slow, costly, and favoring large sized transactions, these qualities are in contrast to the emerging payment needs of today’s ever-connected global economy. OKLink believes in a future where small-value cross-border transfers will be as simple, fast, and cheap as a text message.

“We are thrilled with the reception OKLink has received from industry leading companies and we hope to support their growth further with this incentive promotion.”

Coinsecure, Coins.ph, Rebit, MOIN.Inc, Coinone, Coinplug, Coincheck, Bitoex and BitPesa, are among the early companies to join the OKLink network and take advantage of this initiative.
