At its most basic level, Sokin offers global payments for a fixed monthly fee, and makes dealing with your finances less confusing and more accessible.

As a first-generation immigrant, CEO Vroon Modgill saw first-hand how difficult it was for his father to send money back to India. This inspired him to transform the process entirely – and so, Sokin was born.

Sokin is the first payments platform to take the subscription economy, and use it for transfers on a global scale. Unlike many other platforms, the company has no additional costs or hidden fees – just straightforward, speedy, low-cost currency exchange and money transfers in 38 currencies, to over 200 countries and territories.

Plus, instead of opening a new bank account when users move into a new country, customers can have their salaries paid into their Sokin account, and use it for all their day-to-day payment needs.

On top of this, the Sokin debit card – which is supported by Mastercard’s network – can be used for all day-to-day activities as well as travel payments abroad. First launched in the UK in August 2021, the debit cards are available in over 80 countries.

With a lot of support behind it, from the likes of well-known football clubs Everton and Fulham, as well as Rio Ferdinand – Sokin is on track for success

So how does it work? The Basic Account is free, which provides customers with a 38 currency global currency account. Alternatively, users can go for the Premium Account for a fixed monthly fee (£9.99 a month).

Sokin also charges a fixed fee % for each transaction with no hidden costs or FX mark ups.
