Vivien Cheung, Director, Strategic Partnerships at Airwallex says:
We’re really excited to announce our partnership with 10Clouds, as we continue to support the entrepreneurs, business builders, makers and creators with their global business goals. Through this partnership, 10Clouds’ clients can save time and money on cross-border payments, while also unlocking new global markets. We look forward to building on this partnership and putting entrepreneurs on the global map.
We were working with a FinTech scaleup, which was interested in introducing new functionalities to increase their value proposition for their end users. The team on this client’s side decided not to develop these functionalities internally, but to focus instead on the UX/UI of their app and to use the solutions provided by Airwallex and 10Clouds.
Through Airwallex and 10Clouds’ integration they were able to spend the whole backend development budget on improving their USP which was ease-of-use. The result is that they can now offer their clients an easy, reliable, and fast service (e.g. up to 24h to send payment to China) with no high international payment fees and competitive FX conversion rates.
We were able to achieve all of the above by embedding the Airwallex FX engine and payments infrastructure into our product stack. Airwallex’s proprietary tech infrastructure enables a programmatic money movement network which penetrates across more than 100 countries (and counting), and integrates with more than 80 banks around the world.
