Market research expects the global remittance market size to reach US$930.44 billion by 2026, growing at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 3.9 percent from 2019 to 2026. Much of this traces back to the increase of cross-border transactions and nascent mobile-based payment channels, as well as lower remittance costs and transfer times. As the market is projected to soar, so too could the companies driving the technological platforms that engender that outcome.

RevoluGROUP is also currently proposing its banking technology under various white-label scenarios to dramatically increase user onboarding.
RevoluGROUP’s mission is to aid consumers in resolving multiple banking needs using one secure closed-loop payment system.

RevoluGROUP’s Key Project
RevoluGROUP’s flagship remittance technology is an Apple and Android compatible multinational banking app with a linked Visa card. The RevoluPAY e-wallet can be loaded from any country and used for a variety of transactions worldwide or at any location that accepts VISA Cards. Within seconds, users can send and receive money across the globe without the need for carbon paper or rigid traditional banking and financial institutions.
The innovative app is currently at phase four of payment technology development. RevoluPAY has already achieved wallet-to-wallet connections to individual user bank accounts, cash collection operations and points of sale. In May 2020, the company commenced operations to enable wallet-to-wallet to ATM capabilities that allow beneficiaries to visit any affiliated Visa ATM to withdraw cash.
One of the biggest advantages of RevoluPAY is its closed-loop system. The entire backend technology of the app is secured by Blockchain, so entrepreneurs or individuals without access to credit cards have a means of enacting international payments. This is particularly important in countries where many people don’t have bank accounts, and therefore don’t have credit cards with which to purchase online subscriptions and other services. Currently, there are two billion people worldwide who are unbanked. Because of this, the company can anticipate significant user expansion.
The company has also created specialized revenue verticals linked to RevoluPAY that serve a variety of industries, including:
