A Detailed Explanation of What our Featured Results are

Jun 10, 2019

When searching for the best provider for your next money transfer on Monito, you may sometimes stumble upon what we call a featured result at the top of the comparison table.

This featured provider is the one we suggest you use for your transfer because it is part of our network of premium partners and is only slightly more expensive than the best deal that you'll find clearly labelled just under the featured provider.

Before featuring a provider for your transfer, we make sure that the cost difference is never more than 0.5% of the amount you transfer and never exceed 20 USD for transfers above 4,000 USD.

We want our recommendations to benefit our users, which is why we ensure that all providers eligible for this featured slot offer a top notch user experience and have excellent customer reviews. Providers must have at least a 7.5/10 Monito score, which is based on 50+ strict criteria.

Of course, for a provider to be featured, we also need to have a good partnership in place in order to ensure that we are remunerated fairly for the new customers we send to this provider, which is how Monito is able to operate.

Featuring premium partners allow us to give more visibility to the providers with whom we have a good partnership in place while always making recommendations to our users that we would also be sending to our friends or family members.

Finally, it is important to note that no provider can purchase this featured slots and that Monito remains in total control of which provider is eligible to be featured. You can read more about why you can trust Monito to provide transparent and independent information here.
