Under the agreement, Saxo Payments is providing a new solution that streamlines Allied Wallet’s process of accepting payments and making settlements in multiple currencies globally.

Allied Wallet offers online payment processing and merchant services solutions to online and mobile businesses, giving business owners a simple and secure way to accept payments online or through their mobile and tablet devices. As part of its focus on harnessing more global relationships, Allied Wallet needed to be able to make payments and settlements in a wider variety of currencies.

In contrast to conventional international banking processes, Saxo Payments enables immediate bank transfers to settlement accounts worldwide at very low cost. Designed to empower the swathe of FinTech businesses seeking to service the global digital marketplace, Saxo Payments mitigates the prohibitively expensive traditional banking fees – often around 5% per transaction. Saxo Payments allows merchants to receive funds within minutes of clearing, rather than having to work to conventional banking timescales, and at a fraction of the cost of traditional providers – at less than 1%.

Andy Khawaja, Founder and CEO of Allied Wallet, comments, “As we continue to expand, Allied Wallet needs a competitive foreign exchange solution for a wider range of currencies. Saxo Payments stood out as the top choice for us because it offers low cost international bank transfers, with fast, reliable payments in more currencies.
