International Payments Global Payment

Seamless Business Payments made into China with SUNRATE





Business payments to your Chinese suppliers.

When it comes to making international payments, businesses seek swiftness, simplicity, and affordability. This is especially crucial for transactions involving China, as businesses frequently encounter various obstacles like rigorous declaration procedures, currency restrictions, regulatory compliance, foreign exchange uncertainties, exorbitant fees, and language barriers during administrative tasks.

Fortunately, SUNRATE's comprehensive capabilities and strong banking network enable businesses to effortlessly and efficiently execute direct payments to their Chinese suppliers.



Differentiating between CNH and CNY

The distinction between CNY and CNH arose due to the Chinese government's efforts to internationalize its currency and facilitate cross-border trade and investment. The introduction of CNH allows for greater flexibility and accessibility in trading the RMB internationally, enabling businesses and investors to engage in offshore RMB transactions without the same level of regulatory restrictions imposed on onshore transactions in CNY.


CNY = onshore RMB which circulates ONLY within Mainland China

CNH = offshore RMB that circulates OUTSIDE of Mainland China
