Currencycloud and Paysend have solidified their partnership, marking a significant milestone in the realm of cross-border fintech solutions, as stated in FinTech Magazine. This strategic collaboration aims to bolster Paysend’s global fintech services, enhancing its foreign exchange (FX) and treasury capabilities.

Under this extended partnership, Currencycloud, a prominent cross-border payments company under Visa’s ownership, will play a pivotal role in amplifying Paysend’s reach across various markets worldwide. By leveraging Currencycloud’s expertise and technology, Paysend is poised to introduce advanced money transfer functionalities to its clientele.

The collaboration between Paysend and Currencycloud encompasses a spectrum of enhancements, with Currencycloud acting as Paysend’s technology partner for facilitating cross-border money transfers across key operational regions including the US, EMEA, and Asia-Pacific. Notably, Paysend customers will gain access to multicurrency wallets, empowering them to manage up to 34 different currencies within a unified platform.
