A Modern Twist to Red Packet Traditions: Ang Pows Go Online

The tradition of exchanging red packets, or ‘ang pow’, holds deep cultural significance during Chinese New Year. There’s even a preparatory process for ang pows that goes back decades. Every married adult visits the bank branch to withdraw new, crisp notes to insert into physical red packets. The little packets are then offered in person to children with wishes for excellent school performance, or to the elderly with wishes for good health.

However, there are logistical challenges for sending and receiving ang pows especially across borders and in various international currencies. Fortunately, the transformative power of fintech has made sending and receiving lucky money in any currency so much easier now, to anywhere in the world.

Mobile fintech applications have made the process of sending and receiving lucky money more accessible than ever. By using a smartphone or tablet for the red packet tradition, you can send cross-border payments in the form of e-ang pows. It’s a modern twist for a traditional gesture.
