Money Transfers to Zimbabwe from South Africa have never been easier

Cross-border payments refer to transactions where the sender and the receiver are in separate countries. Apart from transacting in different countries to purchase goods not available in the user’s own country, friends and families are sending funds in cross-border payments.

This is an option that was previously unexplored and conventional bank deposits not only cost a lot, but the banking infrastructure in many developing countries was underdeveloped, making it harder for people to receive money from friends and relatives.

However, with rapid development in payment gateways and mobile application technology, cross-border payments have changed the lives of many people who stay in rural communities or developing nations where conventional banking is difficult.

With payment processors such as Sikhona Money Transfers, money transfers to Zimbabwe and many other African countries have never been easier, providing unbanked individuals with the ability to send and receive funds from others who are based in South Africa and other regions.
