What about KYC and AML Compliance when providing branchless remittance services?

The customer (remitter), depending on where he/she resides, is required to register online and then submit all relevant copies of his/her documents by post to the MSB’s address. The MSB – typically a bank or a money transfer operator (MTO) – will then carry out its due diligence on the applicant. Upon the MSB’s approval, the applicant can login via the Internet or through his/her mobile phone to send money home. This ensures that KYC protocols are followed. 

Reliable money transfer platforms such as those provided by RemitONE are tied into several blocklists such as OFAC, BoE (HM Treasury) and European Sanctions. Whenever a money transfer transaction is created within the system, a check is done on the remitter and the beneficiary against these block-lists to ensure AML compliance. Arrange a demo with us to see how our platform helps you address your KYC and AML issues.
