Referral Partners

We have developed 2 types of referral programs in order to meet the differing needs of you and your clients.

Online Referrals

Online referrals will be appropriate for you if you feel you require generic support for activation and your business customers’ international payment needs are fairly simple and can be completed online.

Activation stages

  • Launch Marketing Campaign – we provide you with digital banners for your website so your clients can easily click through to our dual branded online sign up web page. Where possible emails are also sent to your customer base directing them to the online sign up page
  • Easy Sign Up Process – customers set their account up online and follow a simple customer journey to make their international payment
  • Tracked Commission – once a customer makes a payment, commission is automatically calculated and paid to you quarterly

Benefits

  • New revenue streams – with little to no cost of acquisition
  • Additional Value Added Services – to enhance your current product offerings
  • Expert Support – access to our in house customer relationship team to answer customer queries

Direct Referrals

Direct Referrals will be appropriate for you if your clients are larger SME’s or Corporate and Enterprise customers who need more of a hand held approach when making their international payments.
