Service Portfolio

Sharing my experience on some of Instarem’s offerings that I have used.

Remittance

Why should I use InstaReM for remittance?

  • Regulated by the Monetary Authority of Singapore (MAS). I wouldn’t advise to use any service not regulated by MAS.
  • Better FX rates than banks.
    • Instarem offers zero-margin* FX rates. According to them, many banks and Money Transfer Providers add a mark-up to the FX rates they offer to their customers for sending money abroad. Besides, there are other hidden charges which makes for an inefficient, international money transfer experience.
  • You can sign up conveniently using SingPass MyInfo
  • Instant transfer to Visa debit cards
  • Transparency, low remittance fee and zero hidden charges.
  • Large number of countries supported
    • Asia: Bangladesh, China, Hong Kong, India, Indonesia, Japan, Malaysia, Nepal, Philippines, Singapore, South Korea, Sri Lanka, Thailand, Vietnam
    • Europe: Austria, Belgium, Bulgaria, Croatia, Cyprus, Czech Republic, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Ireland, Italy, Latvia, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Malta, Monaco, Netherlands, Norway, Poland, Portugal, Romania, San Marino, Slovakia, Slovenia, Spain, Sweden, United Kingdom
    • North America: USA, Canada, Mexico
    • South America: Argentina, Chile, Colombia, Peru
    • Oceania: Australia

Personal experience

My impressions of Instarem remittance:

  • Signing in is convenient via Facebook and Google social accounts.
  • Transfer of funds to Instarem can be via PayNow.
  • My recipient received the money I remitted within 24 hours.
  • Supports sending monies to foreign businesses.
    • I once purchased some goods from Australia and needed to pay the foreign business >$1000AUD. I was able to do this via Instarem rather than through a bank and thus saved some expensive TT fees.
    • Not every remittance service supports paying to businesses so I view this as a big plus point for Instarem.

Instarem ‘Amaze Card’

The ‘Amaze Card’ is both a virtual and physical card that can combine up to 5 debit or credit cards. This eliminates the need for you to carry multiple cards. You can choose a specific card from your app to transact with any time.

Another benefit of the card is the 1% cashback on every transaction of SGD 5 and above. Do note that transactions under certain Merchant Category Codes (MCCs) are excluded.

GPay (Google Pay) support

You can use the ‘Amaze Card’ on Google Pay and enjoy greater convenience by paying with your Android phone. This also allows you to stack the cashback with any Google Pay rewards.
