The Senior Vice President of SCB, Arthit Sriumporn, said:

Imagine you are a tourist coming to Thailand, and you can use your home country mobile application to scan for payment and eliminate the need to exchange for local currency. You can use your mobile app, scan the QR payment and receive goods right away.

Arthit Sriumporn, announced while introducing the application:

It is so difficult to send and receive money today. People must physically go to a bank branch, fill out long and complicated forms and wait for payments to be received—with no transparency. With our service, their loved ones from abroad can transfer payment and receive money immediately.

According to Sriumporn, the transaction of the sender to the receiver’s account will take only 40 seconds. SCB has also a plan to expand the services to Laos, Myanmar, Cambodia, and Vietnam in collaboration with Ripple.
