    MoneyExpress is a cross-border remittance service that has been launched in 45 countries and regions including the US, Japan, Singapore, Australia, the UK, Russia, the UAE and Kyrgyzstan. Cooperating institutions include banks like CIBC and IBK and specialized institutions like MoneyGram, XOOM, and Transferwise. Through these institutions’ offline outlets, official websites, and mobile APP, individuals outside Mainland China can easily make cross-border remittance to UnionPay cards issued by 13 banks in China, including ICBC, BOC, China Construction Bank, Bank of Communications, China Everbright Bank, and Hua Xia Bank. Domestic cardholders can get remittance in RMB and then can make purchases or withdraw cash; they do not have to get a solution pay or settle foreign exchange.

    Different from the traditional cross-border telegraphic transfer, MoneyExpress settles the exchange rate in advance and deposit the remittance into the remittee’s UnionPay account in RMB. Therefore, the payee does not need to get a solution pay or pay the bank service fee; she/he can use the money directly. In general, the remittance is deposited into the payee’s account within 12 hours.
