Flutterwave, a fintech startup, has partnered with Currencycloud, a firm that simplifies business in a multi-currency world, in order to accelerate the launch of their payment network in Europe and the US.
The partnership enables Flutterwave to enhance its services to customers by enabling them to receive money globally via unique virtual accounts.
The partnership with Currencycloud will allow Flutterwave’s merchants seamless and quick access to send and receive money transfers at a significant scale at their convenience.
In addition, the partnership will enable merchants access to receive payments by channels other than debit cards, further providing more options for merchants worldwide.
Olugbenga ‘GB’ Agboola, Founder and CEO of Flutterwave said: “This partnership marks our ongoing commitment to creating a payments infrastructure that links the world to Africa.
“Our shared value of simplifying payments, coupled with the speed with which we could launch in a new market leveraging Currencycloud APIs were just a few reasons why we partnered with them.
“Through our partnership, we are excited to offer new and existing customers, more payment options to grow their business, access new markets and build their customer base.”
David Heitzmann, Vice President of Sales & General Manager of North America at Currencycloud commented: “Our goal at Currencycloud is to reimagine the way money flows around the world. The partnership with Flutterwave is a great example of this, and we are thrilled to be able to support Flutterwave in their mission.”
The Currencycloud API has been incorporated into Flutterwave’s solution and is available to existing and new customers.
