US mobile money transfer outfit Remitly has teamed up with Visa to let Americans send funds to debit cards across borders.
The new offering sees Remitly tap into the Visa Direct realtime push payments platform to make transferring money across borders faster and simpler.
Remitly plans to use Visa Direct to give its customers the ability to send payments to eligible Visa cards in real time. Eventually, it plans to add other sending markets.
Matt Oppenheimer, CEO, Remitly, says: "Our highest priority is to create the best possible money transfer experience for immigrant communities and their families around the world.
"Our customers have unique money transfer needs including a need for more choices in how they send and receive money."
