Merchantrade Asia Sdn Bhd is the largest and most complete service provider of call shops in Malaysia with over 4,000 shops. It is also the first non-bank company to be given a remittance license by Bank Negara Malaysia (Central Bank of Malaysia).

Under the deal, I-Remit will be its exclusive partner in providing remittance services to OFWs in Malaysia.
