Five reasons why founders love Airwallex

Airwallex was built for founders by founders. 

We understand the journey you’re on. You might already know Airwallex, you might even already use us - but we wanted to call out a few reasons why founders stick with us as they grow. 

1. Go global from day one 

Airwallex was built to help businesses go global from day one. Your gateway to streamlined international financial operations is our Airwallex Business Account

With this sophisticated (but easy-to-navigate) account, you can: 

  • Open business accounts with local bank details in multiple currencies

  • Make quick international transfers at interbank rates

  • Issue multi-currency corporate and employee cards with a few clicks

  • Settle payments in like-for-like currency, avoiding unnecessary conversions

2. Starting up made easy

Airwallex's digital platform is designed to remove the friction from global payments and financial operations, providing startups with the speed, simplicity, and savings to operate seamlessly both domestically and across borders. 

This includes managing payments, treasury, and spend management to embedded finance – all via one secure platform.

Did you know you can upload and pay bills directly from your Airwallex account? What about ditching your add-on expense management platform and managing these all within Airwallex? We’re your end-to-end solution. 

3. Customisable solutions through APIs

Are you looking to extend your platform’s functionality or tap into new lines of revenue from monetising fund flow? Check out our extensive API suite and embedded finance offerings. 

From embedding our payment acceptance products to using our APIs to facilitate payouts, our technology allows startups to develop their own financial products, enhancing their service offerings​​ and tapping into new lines of revenue. 

4. Seamless integrations with essential software

The Airwallex platform easily integrates with popular accounting like Xero and Netsuite and eCommerce platforms like Shopify, Adobe Commerce and WooCommerce. 

Software integrations are important in ensuring that startups can maintain their financial operations efficiently and with reduced manual labour, allowing more focus on growth and development​​.

5. Join a thriving community

Airwallex is proud to partner with many members of the Australian startup ecosystem, from VCs and funding partners, to accelerators and startup networks. 

Through community engagement, founders are able to accelerate their learnings by asking specific questions to trusted advisors. They can learn from later-stage founders, mentor up-and-coming founders and get access to resources from best-fit service providers. 

Importantly, they can prepare for the inevitable hurdles and connections needed to raise capital and secure talent. Founders need other founders to empathise, commiserate and celebrate the journey of building a startup.
