Devere Bryan, Chief Operating Officer at BUX, comments on the partnership: “With the growth of international migrant communities around the world, and the progress made with financial inclusion in developing counties and under-banked markets, BUX has built our business model around facilitating the day to day economic and communicative needs of the people in these specific segments, aligned with staying at the cutting edge with mobile app development and the social network evolution.
We are very excited to partner with OKLink, as we view it as the region’s premier settlement system. OKLink will help BUX bolster and expand our network allowing us to provide more customers all over the world with a fast, convenient, cost effective and reliable solution for their cross border payment needs, right in the palm of their hands.”
