From today, Indonesians and expats can send money from Indonesia to 80 countries — including Australia, Singapore, Japan, US, UK, China (Alipay) — and Europe. You can send money from your Android or iOS app, or on the web. All in Bahasa Indonesia too. Bagus!

Over 90% of Indonesians find the high cost of remittances to be a source of stress. But now, they can send money from Indonesia for up to 2.5x cheaper compared to the leading banks and non-banks.

Since the start of our beta a few months ago, we’ve onboarded thousands of users. Their feedback has helped us improve the experience for you. Thank you to our early users!
