Furthermore, 1LINK has designed and launched an Android and iOS based Mobile App for users to register as a Remitter and earn points on their remittances sent to Pakistan through designated financial channels. Using the Mobile App, remitters can further enroll their beneficiaries and transfer loyalty points to them. The registered users would be eligible to earn reward points on all subsequent remittances as well as avail exciting privileges provided by government agencies exclusively for remittance senders and receivers.
The Remitter can register himself/ herself. The Beneficiary can only be registered after authorization by the Remitter.
