The advanced payment method allows for local banks to acquired requested amounts quicker (1hr compared to 2-3 days at banks). Moreover, small withdrawals are pooled together to reduce fragmented processing which reduces fees. In addition, customers can pick up cash at non bank locations or have it delivered in person to their doorstep, all for a 1/4 of a commercial bank fee.

Customers have collectively saved $10.5M USD (12B KRW) in transfer commission fees.
