Challenges of payments to Mexico using banks
Rejected wire transfer for no reason
Took 2-3 weeks to receive funds
“There were times when my wire transfers got rejected by the receiver’s bank in Mexico for reasons that I don’t understand. Veem addressed this problem and my transactions became seamless.”
Veem provides a better alternative
Funds received in 1-2 days
Upon hearing about JTBNA’s problem and being told that this was not unique to JTBNA, Veem immediately started work on a payments pipeline to Mexico. After Veem unraveled the compliance needs in both countries JTBNA began doing test transactions, “my partners went from receiving their money in 2-3 weeks to receiving it in 1-2 days.” He also appreciates the simplicity of the platform, payment tracking and the receptiveness of customer service as strong points of Veem.
Results achieved using Veem
Veem eliminates the inefficiencies of global payments and the problems they cause for small businesses. Without those inefficiencies and the worry they cause, small business owners can focus on growth and innovation. By removing the middlemen and owning the global payment process from end-to-end, we free small businesses up to focus on driving their business into the future.
