With more and more people living and working in other countries these days the problem of sending cross border international payments from one country to the next is fraught with difficulties. With the world seemingly getting smaller and smaller, you'd think that the banking system would have accommodated the 'digital nomads' as they've been called. To a certain extent they have. Companies like PayPal, Western Union and the banks themselves provide a good service but their exchange rates, commissions and hidden fees can work out extremely expensive and there is often a few days delay before everything is finalised and before the money reaches its destination.

However, now there's an easier, quicker and cheaper way to do it. Winngie is a new peer-to-peer money exchange social platform for Android and Web that provides a simple way for travelers, foreign students, expats, business people and anyone else traveling internationally to get better value for money when exchanging money overseas. Rather than having to deal with banks and money transfer services, Winngie helps you transfer money to other countries and lets you exchange local money by connecting you with real people who don't charge hidden fees, commissions and offer true currency conversion. You decide the exchange rate you are looking for and then find the Winngie connected person who can accommodate that for you. 

Sounds pretty radical, doesn't it? So, how does it work, you ask? First up you're going to need to sign up. If you are overseas yourself, all you have to do is to post the currency and the exchange amount before checking the map to see who is available near you or in your city. When you've found the right person you can message them, negotiate a price and meet up at a safe and convenient public location to perform the exchange. No waiting for banks or currency exchanges to open, no commissions or fees and the money is in your pocket. What could be better?

If you need to pay for something in another country or need to get some money to your son or daughter who is stuck in Prague or some other far flung place then Winngie makes that simple too. Just post the amount of money you'd like to transfer abroad before selecting a country and sending out a money transfer request to your match. Once you've negotiated you can send your money to a friend or a family member in your destination country and they can meet up with your match to swap the money. 

Winngie connects people with currency needs, cuts out the middleman and drastically reduces the associated costs of exchanging money. It works with all currencies including crypto-currencies and frees you from the opening hours and waiting times of banks and currency exchangers. Winngie lets you solve your currency dilemmas anywhere you are, any time of day or night and 365 days per year.  You can be backpacking through the hills of Thailand, studying in Berlin, working remotely in Kentucky, on holiday in Sydney or simply lounging on your sofa at home.

The Winngie partnership people may well be regular folks just like yourself. However, they could also be people who work in supermarkets, shops, Airbnb check ins or just students. Winngie has checked and verified their accounts using phone numbers and passports. You can do your own research too, if you like, by checking their Winngie reviews, Facebook or Instagram pages to see that they are the real deal. It's recommended that the exchange takes place in a public place like a coffee shop or a bank. If you are happy with the exchange you can leave a review yourself. If you are looking for a better return on your currency exchange then WInngie sounds like the way to go. It is available now for free download at Google Play or via the website.
