Payment Landscape: The Pacific (before we started): 80% of the populations were unbanked 40% of GDP was remittance based 20% charges on remittances was common. Yet no low cost/immediate payment domestic banking infrastructure. So we set out to bridge the gap. If ever there was a market for a real time, cross border, low cost, and widely available payments system: Here it was!
What is KlickEx? Built by the Pacific, for the Pacific. By Farmers. A system to radically reduce costs of moving funds across the Pacific. Deployed amongst Banks first – then to users. Now one of the largest MTOs in the Pacific, and constantly the lowest cost. Extremely high uptake, has resulted in several new services specifically for the RSE market place…
Impact on RSE Moving money across borders has never been lower cost or higher speed for employees, even in a formal financial service. It has also never been easier for Employers. At KlickEx, Technology means the costs keep decreasing. Good Training, Financial Education, Exciting Partnerships. Reduction of Risks, Enhancement of Market-Fit, overcoming market challenges (and reversing upward price pressures).

A win-win Analogy: RSE employers employ RSE workers…. Doing this, benefits employers, but also has huge benefits beyond the place of work for employees…. KlickEx is the same: Taking out the Cost of FX has huge benefits to economies. But More… Enhanced compliance, lower costs, better home healthcare – better ongoing health once workers arrive, more trading opportunities at home…
