Global finance app Revolut has announced that U.S. customers can transfer money to Mexican bank accounts, according to an emailed press release Friday (Jan. 28).
The service will be offered fee-free and would be done in up to 30 minutes.
Revolut has been working on improving the U.S. methods to send money to home countries.
In July of last year, the company let U.S. customers transfer money to Mexico at the actual exchange rates. In October, the app announced it would be offering 10 free international transfers per month.
“Last year, over $45 billion was sent from the U.S. to Mexico, and had these funds been transferred through Revolut, over $2.25 billion would’ve been unlocked for U.S. customers,” said Juan Miguel Guerra, CEO of Revolut Mexico. “Despite being the largest remittance corridor in the world, sending money from the U.S. to Mexico is slow and expensive. We are now offering the service fee-free in up to 30 minutes and are tremendously proud to be putting more money back in the pockets of families in Mexico and the USA.”
Guerra has been trying to expand the Latin American efforts this year, hiring more talent.
