Nowadays, with the rapid development of economic globalization, the economic ties between the countries of the world are closer, global trade is constantly taking place, and there are more and more scenarios for cross-border payment. However, due to the large number of intermediate links involved in traditional cross-border payment, high handling fees and poor timeliness of collection and payment, which causes inconvenience to cross-border merchants in cross-border payment.
Traditional cross-border payments are slow and expensive
Traditional cross-border remittances are mainly rely on remittance companies, post offices, banks and some offshore fund. In international trade, cross-border payment faces with both expensive and slow problems. Each fee does not seem to be high, but it has not been a small number in the long run.
The traditional cross-border payment settlement method is exemplified by the world’s leading express remittance company“Western Union”. Even though it has the largest and most advanced electronic exchange financial network in the world, the fastest time to pay for cross-border payments is 2 to 3 days. If you use ordinary bank wire transfer, it takes 3-7 days to wait. And the cost of each transaction is 30 to 40 dollars.
