Malaysia-based TNG Digital, owner and operator of the Touch ‘n Go eWallet, has partnered with cross-border payment hub Tranglo.


This joint venture seeks to enable TNG Digital to expand its cross-border remittance services. To do so, the Malaysian fintech will reportedly leverage Tranglo’s network as well as infrastructure to enable its customers to send money from GOremit on the Touch ‘n Go eWallet to payees from ten countries: Indonesia, the Philippines, Singapore, Thailand, Vietnam, Bangladesh, India, Nepal, Pakistan, and Sri Lanka.

According to the press release, this is the first step in a larger effort by the company, as the fintech plans to further expand the reach of these services by offering them in other countries as well. 

When commenting on the latest announcement, a representative from Tranglo expressed their delight in improving the remittance options of Touch ‘n Go eWallet by incorporating their last-mile delivery solution. They mentioned that the ten countries selected for sending remittances are top corridors with dependable payment channels. They also explained that their API would autonomously choose the best payout techniques and connections to provide immediate transactions.

Similarly, an official from TNG Digital emphasised that the involvement of GOremit in remittance plays a vital role in driving their financial inclusion agenda. They further added that working alongside a partner who has a clear understanding of their vision is crucial. They also believe that the partnership with Tranglo will serve as a catalyst to further their mission by servicing remittance users.

TNG Digital and Tranglo announced they have started a collaboration aimed at expanding TNG Digital’s remittance offering.
