Faster lower-cost cross border settlement for Paysafe clients
London, February 2018 – Paysafe Group Limited, a leading global payments provider, has joined Saxo Payments Banking Circle for fast, cost-effective local and cross border settlement. Through membership of Banking Circle, Paysafe has the added ability to offer its clients settlement accounts from Saxo Payments for their card scheme flow.
Paysafe provides end-to-end payment solutions for both merchants and consumers around the world. In this partnership, settlement accounts from Banking Circle will be offered that can improve settlement times, increase payments acceptance and reduce costs for both local and cross border payments.
Andrea Dunlop, CEO Acquiring & Card Solutions for Paysafe Group, commented: “Our clients need to accept and process card payments from all over the world. In some instances, traditional banking solutions can be slow and expensive, and don’t always offer the most efficient service. Through Banking Circle, our clients will be able to process card payments in any currency – quickly, and at minimal cost.”
“The unique Paysafe approach combines a broad range of global solutions with industry and business model expertise, underpinned by boutique-style dedicated support and value-added services. Fast, cost-effective cross border payment settlement is key area of our suite of solutions, and Banking Circle has been able to offer the high level of service at the low costs our clients require.”
Anders la Cour, co-founder and Chief Executive Officer of Saxo Payment Banking Circle added: “For too long, businesses have been paying too high a price for cross border payments. Fees are extortionate, FX rates poor, and transfer and settlement times too slow to support modern business. Banking Circle is allowing Financial Tech businesses and banks to help their clients send and receive international payments as if they were local. Businesses like Paysafe, and their clients, are already seeing the benefits and opening up the global market for international trade.”
