2020 Recap – Remitr’s Year in Review

2020 Recap – Remitr’s Year in Review

We did it! We all managed to pull together and make it to December.

2020 has been a challenging year, but it’s safe to say that we’ve all done a lot of learning, growing and changing. We’re so incredibly proud of everyone in the Remitr community.

We’re taking a quick look back on the year and what we’ve achieved together, while also looking forward to a brighter 2021.

Let the recap begin…

Jan: ATAP, Quickbooks Integration

We met lots of you at the ATAP conference, where we spoke about making AP payments easier than ever with our Xero & Quickbooks integrations! (Our smart-home giveaway was a huge hit too!)

Feb: Door Decorating Champs!

Back when offices were a thing, we tapped into our creative side for The Professional Centre’s Valentine’s Day door decorating competition. We were delighted to win first place and a pizza party for our team!



Universally Remote

Along with millions around the world, we began working remotely in March. We didn’t expect it to still be happening in December, but we’re continuing to do the right thing to keep ourselves and our communities safe.

With team members in Canada, the US, India and the UAE – we’re proud of how we’ve pulled together and grown closer over this period. We have since made the decision to continue operating with all of our staff working remotely for the foreseeable future.

Mar: Free Payments

In March we also rolled out our first Covid relief initiative in support of small businesses when we waived transfer fees on all payments for one month.

Apr: S.E.E.D

In April, we proudly launched the Small Enterprise Exchange Directory (SEED) – an interactive directory of support offerings for SMBs.

May: Happy Birthday!

Back in May, we celebrated our 4th birthday. Our team has grown from strength to strength in both our expertise and our passion for helping small businesses thrive and grow. Check out our video.

Jun: New Site, Who Dis?

In June, we improved your on-site Remitr experience. Some of the changes we made included giving you a refreshed homepage, cleaner navigation and better insight into who we are as a company. We also made it simpler to login and easier to see exactly where you can send your payments.

July: Global Business Account

One of the most exciting things we did in 2020 was launch the Remitr Global Business Account (GBA) on Product Hunt.

The Remitr GBA gives you personalized, virtual bank accounts in the US, UK and Europe. If your business sells to customers in the US or Europe, this is the ideal solution to take the pain out of getting paid!

Aug: Instant Conversions

Remitr users can now instantly convert funds from one currency to another, in advance of withdrawing or using them to make a payment.

Sep: How Remitr Works

Remitr’s payments are fast and easy. But, have you ever wondered how it all works? We break it all down for you right here.

Oct: Remitr Case Studies

Remitr’s goal is to help you grow – wherever you do business! Here are some examples of how we’ve helped small business owners just like you expand their horizons in 2020.

Nov: New Remitr Dashboard

We opened a Remitr Focus Group. LOTS of you joined. We recieved some amazing suggestions. And just like that, Remitr got a new dashboard!

We acted as quickly as we could to implement your feedback, and in November rolled we out an updated dashboard featuring a Payment Calculator, Customer Perks, Transaction Status and much more!

Dec: Shop Local Initiative

Small businesses need our support now more than ever.

Remitr has made a pledge to SHOP LOCAL for all of our holiday gifting this season. Check out our CoFounder Sandeep Todi’s article, and join us in supporting the small businesses in our communities.

Thank You!

As 2020 wraps up, we’re hard at work on some very exciting things to come in 2021…keep an eye out!

But, before we end this year, we want to say how much we appreciate you all – every customer, every follower on social media, every newsletter subscriber and every blog reader.

We want to thank you from the bottom of our hearts. You really are the reason we do what we do, and we’ll always be proud to have you as part of our community.

See you in 2021!
Team Remitr

Remitr is the better alternative to cheques, bank visits and wire transfers (they all suck). The Remitr Global Network allows fast, often 1-day, business payments worldwide. Remitr also offers businesses a free Global Business Account for receiving online sales payouts in USD, GBP and EUR – all without the bank fees or the delays.
