Why Bank Tranfers

Easy Remittances

any time,anywhere.

There are three reasons.

Consumption Compared To Investment And Business Payments

Card transfers are suitable for day to day consumption requirements. They are however expensive. Their cost is linear, meaning that the amount you pay is directly related to the amount sent. The more you send, the more you pay.


Investment transfers (to buy land, shares, homes etc) which are much larger are best done by bank transfer where costs are fixed regardless of the amount transferred. The same goes for local payrolls, supplier payments, paying off various creditors (accounts payables) etc .


For example:

Amount sent: USD 5,000

Cost: USD 70 (varies from bank to bank)

% cost to amount sent: 70/5,000= 1.4%. If the amount sent had been $10,000, the proportional cost would fall to:

70/10.000 = 0.70%

By increasing the denominator, the % cost will keep falling. This is much cheaper than the linear card transfer.
