Well, this will help remittance too....
The biggest thing, stopping people from accepting Bitcoin in the remittance market, is the added cost to convert it, back to fiat.
If there was no reason for them to convert to fiat, it would have been the cheapest currency to use, in the world.
It is definitely a useful service that I have been waiting for for a long time. I realize it is just starting out so they need to charge more but with competition and more use I'm sure the price will come down.
They may want to check out MyCheckFree who offers free bill pay services (in fiat).
From their site:
