Felix Pago and Mercado Pago Partnership

Silicon Valley-based fintech startup Félix Pago is proud to announce a groundbreaking partnership with Mercado Pago México, the leading financial services provider in Latin America. This collaboration aims to revolutionize the way Latin families in the US send money to their loved ones back home, offering a fast, secure, and affordable solution through a seamless WhatsApp-based remittance platform.

The partnership between Félix Pago and Mercado Pago México will empower Latin families to manage their finances more efficiently and cost-effectively, providing numerous benefits for both senders and receivers. With a simple WhatsApp conversation, users can send money instantly, with a low transfer fee of just $2.99.

Félix Pago Co-Founder Bernardo Garcia said, "Our remittance service on WhatsApp leverages the power of cryptocurrency to enable real-time transactions. We've made the process incredibly simple. People just open their WhatsApp, which is already in the hands of 70% of those sending money, and message us like they would anyone else. For recurring customers, the entire transaction takes about 40 seconds to complete, and the money is always delivered instantly."

As part of this partnership, recipients will gain access to Mercado Pago México's comprehensive financial ecosystem, which includes digital accounts with annual yields over 10%, debit cards, online payments, personal loans, and exclusive discounts. This inclusive financial environment will help Latin families improve their financial well-being and overall quality of life.

Manuel Godoy, co-founder and CEO at Felix Pago, explains, "Partnering with Mercado Pago will help us accelerate our mission to help Latinos in the US send money back home. The beneficiaries of remittances will be able to use the funds as they see fit leveraging Mercado Pago's platform. Our users will now have more options to provide care for their families." 

To celebrate the launch of this partnership, Félix Pago is offering a special promotion of three free transfers to Mercado Pago accounts per user.
