Free Member-to-Member Transactions on June 16 | International Day of Family Remittances

SolidTrust Pay plays an integral role in the global money transfer and fin-tech industries. Many of our members use our services to conduct business around the world because we offer some of the best rates and services online. But many of our users also use our services to transfer monies to their families back home — these are called remittances.

On June 16th, we are proud to announce we will be showing our support for the International Day of Family Remittances, as well as our dedication to improving both the lives of our users and the many different countries from which they come.

For a full 24 hours, from 9:00am EST on June 16 to 8:59am EST on June 17, member-to-member transactions will be entirely free! That means you won’t pay a single cent in fees for any transactions between your friends, family or associates. This does not apply to merchant website purchases. Users must be 18 or older in order to create an account, and accounts are restricted to a $250 daily transaction limit until fully verified.

Sign up for a SolidTrust Pay account now and get yourself verified by June 16th to take full advantage of this event!

International Day of Family Remittances SolidTrust Pay

Our hope is that this will help the people who use our services to support their families back home. We want to see them get ahead right at the start of summer as we head into the growing season for many countries. We want our users to be as successful as possible. Because when one of us grows, we all grow.

So, in solidarity with the International Fund for Agricultural Development (IFAD), we hereby declare that we fully endorse and support the following pledge:

To all IFAD’s Member States,

We, SolidTrust Pay, fully endorse the International Day of Family Remittances (IDFR).

The IDFR was unanimously proclaimed by all 176 IFAD Member States at its Governing Council in February 2015. In December 2016, the General Assembly of the United Nations took note of this proclamation.

June 16 is officially designated as International Day of Family Remittances. The day aims to recognize, and to raise global awareness of the fundamental contribution made by migrant workers to the wellbeing of their families and communities back home, and to the sustainable development of their countries of origin.

Remittances represent one the largest single financial forces for good on the planet. At $445 billion to developing countries, the money sent home annually by migrant workers dwarfs international aid and, in some instances, foreign direct investment too. Remittances also promote financial inclusion and disproportionately benefit both the poor and women in emerging markets. Hundreds of millions of families globally rely on these money flows to keep food on the table and a roof over their heads, and to provide education and better opportunities for the future.

Today is a celebration of the hard work, sacrifice and generosity of international migrant workers. As stakeholders  in  the  remittance industry, we  pledge  to  work together to enhance innovative financial technology, provide greater efficiency and lower the cost for a more accessible financial sector to all in order to enable poor people to control their financial life and to be agents of change.

We call upon governments, regulators, financial institutions and development actors to join forces towards this great achievement.
We are committed to celebrating the power of remittances with people throughout the world.

Happy International Day of Family Remittances

Our year in review, future contests and more!

solidtrustpay-and-the-world-fb

With 2017 barreling in and 2016 a fading memory, we wanted to take one last look back at our year and share with our members some of the memories we have. We learned new ways to connect with you and celebrated our ten year anniversary, which coincided with our member appreciation week. We saw tremendous growth with our valued merchants and loyal members, and we finished the year strong thanks to our fantastic group of dedicated employees!

solidtrust-pay-year-in-review-2016

Our Facebook Christmas Contest was a great experience, and a great way to learn afacebooksantahatbout some of our members. We connected with many of you, and were able to help out some great people along the way. We want to do more things like this in the future! Lets see what some of our winners had to say.

Wow ! What a pleasant surprise, and I can only say with a grateful heart that God is good all the time, and all the time God is good! Thank you SolidTrust Pay for your prompt and efficient service, and for your heart to help everyone in need. Thank you also for the prize!
Best wishes and God Bless,
Allwyn Viegas


Thank you very much, this is a really nice Christmas gift and a really good feeling to donate something to World Vision that will help a mother and a baby in need.
Best regards, Marry Christmas and Happy New Year,
Milan Vugdragovic

We gave $500 to 5 randomly chosen members who signed up for the contest, and then we gave them $500 to purchase donation packages from World WV_MASTER_LOGO-RGBVision. With our added contribution, we were able to fully stock two medical clinics, build and properly install two latrines, and send much needed food, baby care and school supplies to communities affected by poverty and war. Click the World Vision logo if you’re able to help as well.

We Started Working With Transpay!

We made a significant decision to partner with Transpay to offer our members an option that’s cheaper than a traditional wire and faster than an ACH. We released an extensive guide with a video tutorial for this option so that everybody will be able to take advantage of this exciting new way to pay!

10-year-anniversary-solidtrust-pay

We Celebrated 10 Years in Business!

On June 15, 2016, SolidTrust Pay became ten years old! We celebrated with a contest similar to our Facebook contest, and had more great chances to connect with our members. This was during our Member Appreciation Week, and we’re excited to do it again this year!

SolidTrust Pay Growth in 2016solidtrustpay-growth-graph

In the last quarter of 2016, we saw an explosion of payment button requests from merchants and entrepreneurs looking to find the best payment processor for 2017. With so many merchant service requests, we saw our daily user signups double in Q4! This is why we value our merchants so much; it’s also what keeps our customer support, payments and verification staff working so hard to stay on top of it all! That being said, it’s you, our members, who we owe everything to. Thank you all!

We Rode the Bitcoin Roller-Coaster

We continued to allow users to deposit from their bitcoin wallets into their STP wallets, having their BTC converted to USD automatically and then having the option to spend, exchange or withdraw it directly into their bank accounts. We also continbitcoin-rollercoasterued to offer our payment button services to merchants who want to accept bitcoin directly on their websites. All this, in spite of the volatility of BTC towards the end of 2016, made for some pretty trying times!

We look forward to growing with the blockchain over 2017 though. Many of our members love the option to buy, exchange and withdraw bitcoin, so it’s not going anywhere any time soon!

2016-becomes-2017

Looking Toward the Future and 2017

Looking back, we’re nothing but happy and grateful for the year that we had. Looking into the future, we want to make sure we continue to grow as a company, but also as a community. Many of our merchants bring entire communities to our doorstep, and we would be remiss if we did not take the opportunity to join those communities, and also to build our own. Follow us on Facebook and Twitter @solidtrustpay to keep up with us!

In addition to major site updates to SolidtrustPay.com, we aim to reach out and connect more with both our existing members, and the industry at large. We have more chances to win cash prizes through Facebook and social media contests planned, updates to the site that will bring you closer to your digital wallet, and a few other surprises to that will keep SolidTrust Pay on the cutting edge of the online payment processing industry, and the preferred eWallet of millions of users worldwide!
