Singapore-based FlexM announced today it has raised seed funding to the tune of US$886,000. The funding comes from Singaporean mobile payments provider MatchMove, with whom FlexM has inked a partnership deal, and a number of undisclosed private investors.
The startup offers its customers an ewallet that can be used for payroll, money remittance, and e-shopping. FlexM’s service includes a virtual prepaid MasterCard and up to four physical copies. It claims to offer more affordable remittance rates than established services like Western Union.
