Hi there. 👋🏽 We have news for you. But first, let’s step back a bit.

Back in late 2020, OnJuno was born with a clear mission: to build a thoughtful banking experience for hard-working individuals — individuals striving to pursue their dreams, to build a secure future for themselves, to care for loved ones back home.

But when it came to having conversations with these very people, it quickly became clear that their experience of sharing that hard-earned income with family abroad was steeped in hurdles, delays, and uncertainty.

This struck us as deeply unfair; why face unnecessary challenges in what should be a simple, yet meaningful, experience?

For us, this problem was one that was too important to be left unsolved. 

With that in mind, we’re excited to announce that OnJuno has launched an international money transfer service, available directly within your app! We’re thrilled to be partnering with Wise to launch the feature so many of you asked for, and all of you deserve.

Ryan Zagone, Head of Americas, Wise for Banks, said:

We’re excited to launch our new partnership with OnJuno — giving its customers access to the leading digital experience for sending money to friends and family abroad.

Consumers are paying far too much in hidden fees and unfair exchange rates, and our new integration with OnJuno demonstrates our shared commitment to transparency by giving customers the ability to send money faster and cheaper than ever before.

Varun Deshpande, Co-Founder at OnJuno, added:

At OnJuno, our goal is to provide seamless international money movement for immigrants and digital nomads in the age of borderless remote work. Our deep integration and partnership with Wise enables us to provide faster, cheaper and a convenient way to send remittances across the world from the US.

We’re on a mission to make banking fair and transparent and with our remittance launch, we take another step towards that. Our members will be able to send money instantly to over 30+ countries across 5 currencies with real time FX rates and tracking along with transparent pricing.

Here’s how the OnJuno money transfer experience will be better than anything else you’ve tried before:

It’s faster: OnJuno provides the benefits of a bank and money transfer operator rolled into one, so there are no delays in getting your money to where it matters – fast and friction-free.

It’s cheaper: We are often cheaper than our competitors, simply because we think it’s time you stopped losing your money to unnecessary fees and mark-ups. 

There are no secrets: You’ll have 24/7 access to our transparent rate comparison table, helping you secure the best possible rate available every single time.

You can track your transfers: Want to keep tabs on every stage of your transfer’s journey? We’ll make sure to keep you and your beneficiary in the loop with handy notifications.

We currently offer the following 5 currencies:

  • Indian Rupee (INR)
  • Chinese Yuan (CNY)
