Frequently asked questions

Any type of transaction that involves a payer and a payee from two different countries is termed a cross-border payment. Such a transaction requires currency conversion for settlement.

Financial institutions, FinTechs, or any merchant who wants to sell their products or services to global customers requires cross-border payments. To provide a higher value-add to the customer, it’s imperative to optimise the offerings based on the local preferences of their target market. This includes allowing local payment methods at the time of checkout.

In a cross-border banking process, the bank of the payee or customer will initiate a payment with a partnering bank in the receiving country. The partner bank will then process the payment to the bank of the seller entity as a domestic transaction. In certain situations, there might be more intermediaries that form part of this payment process.

Cross-border payments are usually costlier due to the presence of several intermediaries, the regulatory framework, and currency exchange fees. Unlike a domestic transaction, a cross-border payment may take several days to process. Security is another major concern for such transactions.

A cross-border payment is one of the most significant uses of blockchain technology. It uses distributed ledger technology to secure transactions across the funnel while removing intermediaries. Blockchain allows bi-directional messaging that enables almost real-time processing for cross-border payments.
