Viceisza’s research studied 400 Latino migrants to assess whether they pay attention to information about money-transfer companies as displayed on remitright.com, which collaborated on the research. The study, funded by the National Science Foundation, presented migrants with different types of information (e.g. on fees and delivery speed of remittances) and exposed them to eyetracking experiments and surveys, in order to test whether they process such information.

“Our innovation tries to understand and resolve the constraints that impede the end-user experience with comparison sites,” Dr. Viceisza said in describing the study.
