Hi @itez,

Interesting project. How does your platform differentiate from Ramp and Simplex?

Thank You

Hi, Cheualx!
Thanks for your question.

  • First of all it’s an acceptance rate! We have acceptance rate more than 80% with fully KYC users.
  • We have lowest fee on market by paying with bank cards.
  • We support all types of bank cards issued by Visa and Mastercard - debit, credit, prepaid, virtual.
  • We accept 36 fiat currencies. It means that the users will not pay FX rate for his bank paying f.e. in Turkish Lira or Korean Won.
  • We don’t hold rolling reserves of our b2b partners.

Hi @itez,

  1. How do you achieve no FX fees across fiat currencies?
  2. Do you have a table of your competitor fees when you’re referring to ‘lowest fees’?
  3. Acceptance rate of 80%, what is your KYC process?

Thank You

Hi @itez ,

1. How do you achieve no FX fees across fiat currencies?

We achieve it by holding Merchants ID in each of this fiat currencies on our accounts in payment providers. So, when the user choose fiat currency of his bank account, which is supported by itez, the operation will go through this fiat currency

2. Do you have a table of your competitor fees when you’re referring to ‘lowest fees’?

Yes, our fee is 3.9%

We’ve prepared a table with current rates.

3. Acceptance rate of 80%, what is your KYC process?

To proceed a KYC, user needs to make a liveness selfie and make a picture of his document (mostly it’s a passport or driver licence).

Thank You!
