AstroPay brands itself as a fast-growing online payment solution specifically developed for emerging markets. The service is therefore popular among both forex brokers and traders from developing countries, in particular in South America, where AstroPay has a strong foothold.
AstroPay offers fast and reliable money transfers across national borders, and works seamlessly with many of the established payment operators like VISA, MasterCard, American Express and UnionPay. A great benefit with AstroPay for forex traders in developing countries is that they can pay with their own local currency, which then in a cheap and quick way is converted and deposited into the trading account. AstroPay was founded in 2009, and is currently headquartered in London, the UK.
