Airwallex launched its Airwallex Online Payments App on Shopify which is a payment gateway plugin that vendors can embed into their online store to receive payments from their global consumers.
Airwallex is an Australia-based global fintech platform that empowers businesses to operate anytime, anywhere. The company is enabling its clients to transform their businesses from offline mode to online and establish themselves strongly in the fast-changing competition landscape. Airwallex had only one aim at its inception, and it was to create a world where all businesses can operate beyond the borders and by doing so, amplify the growth of the global digital economy.
This new app is delivered via payment acceptance solution of the company that covers a broad range of payment methods. These payments methods comprise Mastercard, Visa, UnionPay bank cards, and 30+ other local payment methods throughout the Asia-Pacific and Europe, like WeChat Pay in APAC, GrabPay in Southeast Asia, Bancontact and Sofort in Europe.
Ravi Adusumilli, SVP of Partnerships, Airwallex, stated, “We are excited that our online payment acceptance solution will now be available on Shopify, helping merchants create a seamless payment journey on their online store. Our app is one of many offerings we have built to help merchants accept cross-border payments. In this case, by using an Airwallex account, merchants can gain secure access to a multitude of payment methods, both globally and locally, in a convenient, fast and affordable way possible.”
Merchants of Airwallex can also take payments from customers all over the world and can get settlements in 7+ major currencies, including the US dollar, preventing the need for costly currency conversions and associated costs. Additionally, businesses have the option of accepting payments straight into their Airwallex multi-currency wallets and disbursing funds via Borderless Cards or Transfers.
