Continuous Evolution in Cross-Border Payments

With businesses spanning globally, more intercontinental trading and increasing consumer demand, we hear more about cross-border payment solutions. A lot has changed in a short space of time, and what are the risks and solutions in a world of growing international corridors?

What are cross-border payment solutions?

Cross-border payments are transactions where the end recipient and the sender are in separate countries. Cross-border payments can happen in numerous ways, including card payments, mobile payments and so on. The diversity in payment methods is a positive, as well as the fact that they cover retail payments and wholesale – increasing accessibility.

For GlobePay, we are a UK-based cross-border payment provider to help UK merchants receive payments from their Asian customers.

Main types of cross-border payment solutions:

There are two main types of cross-border payments:

  1. Wholesale: Cross-border payments named ‘wholesale’ are generally between financial institutions to support customer activity or their own cross-border activities, which include lending, borrowing, foreign exchange, debt, commodities, and securities.
  2. Retail: The most widely recognised cross-border payment method is defined as ‘retail’. This includes a transaction between individuals and businesses. For example, remittances, purchases and even money sent back to home countries from migrants.

GlobePay provides cross-border payment solutions which can cover both Wholesale and Retail.

How will fintech impact the cross-border market?

Fintech innovations are emerging regularly, if not daily, to facilitate the adoption of safer, cheaper, and more convenient cross-border payments. Digital technologies, such as blockchain technologies, will mitigate risks of confidential information that is passed through the cross-border corridors. Many non-bank institutions, such as fintech, possess licences and infrastructures which allow them to mitigate an intermediary player in the payment corridor. In the long run, this brings a great reduction in fees and waiting times to be shortened.

Fintechs are also tackling the issues around ‘transparency’ which hinders a seamless cross-border payment process. The lack of transparency stems from the messaging sent from bank A to bank B during a transfer, and fintech has been developing technologies which remove this issue. Distributed ledger technologies, for example, are supporting back-end processes in cross-border payments to offer real-time tracking of payments and potentially fast settlements for banks whose recipient is in their network.
