SentBe partners Currencycloud to improve FX

Wednesday 7 December 2022 12:08 CET | News

UK-based fintech Currencycloud has partnered with South-Korea-based global remittance and payment provider SentBe to improve its financial exchange (FX) capabilities.


As part of the collaboration, Currencycloud aims to help SentBe better its payments service’s regional reach and offer its Korean consumers and businesses an improved and customised experience when sending money internationally.

What the partnership entails within cross-border payments

By collaborating with SentBe, Currencycloud enables the company to provide to its clients low-cost FX, thus making it possible for it to scale more rapidly as it is looking into expanding into the global foreign exchange market. With SentBe integrating Currencycloud’s API into its already existing FX management technology, the company is now given the option of offering a fully automated payments process to its customer base in South Korea and Singapore, providing them with transactions to the UK, EU, Canada, and the US in a more fast and simplified manner. 

Through the partnership with Currencycloud, SentBe has the option of offering a more extensive range of solutions to their customers, as well as competitive FX rates. Company representatives have stated in the press release that apart from providing their customers with services needed for international expansion, the Currencycloud platform has sped up their client service and simplified the transaction process in its entirety, thus minimising the time it takes for the company’s clients to receive their money and attracting more clients. 

Currencycloud officials have added that SentBe has a similar focus in making frictionless borderless finance a reality for its customers, and opening up low-cost, improved payments and transactions for everyone. The fintech is looking forward to continuing this partnership as SentBe expands into the US, Australia, and Europe.
