Global fintech Airwallex today announced it has partnered with Plaid, the data network powering the digital financial ecosystem, to offer an integrated solution that can streamline Automated Clearing House (ACH) payments, and enable a more seamless, safe and cost-efficient way to authorize debits from their bank accounts and fund their Airwallex accounts.
With the Plaid integration, Airwallex customers will also be able to instantly and securely verify their bank accounts in the United States. These verifications are used by Airwallex’s direct debit capabilities, either for adding funds to their Airwallex wallet from an external bank account, or for merchants to accept payments from customers within Airwallex’s payment acceptance business.
“We are excited to be partnering with Plaid, and to be able to offer a flexible, secure and transparent payment option for our joint customers in the U.S., Through this integration, customers can authenticate the payers’ bank accounts without the complexity and time that usually comes with traditional ACH processing. Enabling a more seamless customer experience like we are with Plaid is exactly why Airwallex was built. We are providing easier access to a global financial infrastructure, and can in turn, empower businesses to operate anytime, anywhere.”
- Ravi Adusumilli, Global Head of Partnerships and General Manager, Americas at Airwallex
