Unified Signal and Valorus Now Offer World’s First Worldwide Virtual Debit Card With Free Domestic and International Money Transfers and More.
Unified Signal / Valorus’ white label fintech solution allows companies to issue secure branded mobile wallet/virtual bank accounts with physical and virtual Visa debit cards to customers and employees.
AUSTIN, TX – January 15th, 2020 - Valorus, the technology company that helps enterprise-level organizations expand their brand into financial services, launched today enhanced features to its white label fintech solution that include the world’s first Worldwide Virtual Debit Card, allowing international customers all over the world to buy goods and services online. Valorus is the first company in the world to offer this type of program, having worked for more than a decade with banks and Visa to support this product.
More than $500 Billion was sent from individuals across borders to friends or family in 2018, according to the World Bank, and that number is expected to increase in 2020. "The cost of sending that money is very high with average costs of 7-11 percent,” said Paris Holt, CEO of Valorus Technologies. “We are revolutionizing these international money transfers and remittances with zero cost, and we’re giving companies a way to offer that service to customers and employees with a branded, white-label offering."
Other new features include the ability for primary debit card holders to quickly add up to five personalized companion cards that can be provided to family members located anywhere around the world. Companion card customers have their own balance and can manage their own account which is also linked to their own personalized mobile wallet account.

The Valorus mobile wallet platform interops with multiple payment technologies and financial institutions around the world via the Valorus MCN (Mobile Clearinghouse Network) allowing for extremely secure, seamless, and real-time money movement for companies and users of the mobile wallet domestically and across borders.

"We did the hard part of creating a powerful FinTech solution, so companies don’t have to,” said Paris Holt, CEO of Valorus Technologies. “We developed all the software and hardware, created the virtual machines, ran through vigorous security screening and assessments, negotiated with major financial institutions, and tested the FinTech solution in the market. We did the R&D, so companies can have a branded fintech solution ready for customers and employees can launch to market quickly and cost efficiently."
