From customer to partner: How Business Blueprint saves their clients thousands
Learn how Airwallex helped Business Blueprint grow without borders—and why they're now recommending the tool to help their customers do the same.
Business Blueprint is business education company, offering programs that help business owners achieve better marketing and sales outcomes, and healthier profits.
20 - 50 employees
Business Blueprint is an education and training company on a mission to help other business owners and entrepreneurs build the business of their dreams. For more than 15 years, Dale Beaumont and his wife Katherine have been working with established and aspiring business owners to grow and reach their business goals.
As an Airwallex customer, Dale has experienced first-hand the value we’ve added to his business. Now, he’s helping his customers work smarter and save thousands as an Airwallex Partner.
Where is Business Blueprint using Airwallex?
With a large team based in the Philippines, it wasn’t long before they ran into hurdles when organising wages. The amount of time and effort it took to pay employees and contractors each period was even greater than the FX fees incurred.
So Dale made the switch to Airwallex. They now use Airwallex direct transfers to pay wages directly into their employees' bank accounts. Where it used to take two days or more, their team now sees the money reach their accounts on payday in under two hours.
From a back-office side, it’s a massive time-saver, too. With all their employee details saved into the platform, paying their entire wages each month takes just 10 minutes.
Money saved is as good as money earned
Problem: As an expanding business, Business Blueprint was experiencing a lack of control and visibility of specific budgets and software subscriptions. The team found they were wasting time and effort each month with unnecessary bookkeeping.
Solution: Dale and the team upgraded to Airwallex Virtual Cards. Virtual Cards enabled them to consolidate their monthly transactions and subscriptions into one central payment platform. It saved them time and gave them greater visibility of their overall business spend.
And as icing on the cake, Dale has seen Business Blueprint save thousands in transaction fees.
But it’s not just the savings—it’s the ease of use. As a busy business owner, Dale has found the Airwallex platform intuitive and easy to use. He loved the simplicity of the interface and appreciated the support he received during onboarding. Not to mention the time the Airwallex team spent helping him and his staff familiarise themselves with the platform.
Founder and CEO at Business Blueprint
“If you have staff, suppliers or customers overseas, then your business should be using Airwallex. It’s a fantastic product backed by a wonderful customer care team who will answer all your questions and ensure you get onboarded properly and know how to use the product.”
Why does Business Blueprint recommend Airwallex to their customers?
With first-hand experience behind him, it was only natural for Dale to begin recommending Airwallex to his customers—or anyone that would listen, as he’d be the first to admit.
He’d already seen the value and savings Airwallex delivered for his business.
As a coach, he saw it as a value-add. Many of his customers were still learning how to grow their business. Some were expanding overseas, some were opening overseas accounts or transferring currency, and others were waiting for the money.
Recommending a better option for managing spend and payments became part of his coaching strategy. He can now set his customers up with the tools they need to scale their business, not their fees or workload.
Founder and CEO at Business Blueprint
“Our customers have loved learning about, and now using, Airwallex. I’ve received an email probably every week now from a customer thanking me for the referral. Some of them have saved thousands of dollars a year—some of them tens of thousands of dollars a year.”
Saving Business Blueprint customers thousands
One satisfying moment that confirmed Dale's decision to become an Airwallex Partner. A Business Blueprint client was considering another payment platform for a large international transaction—one that would’ve cost thousands of dollars in fees.
Thanks to Dale’s intervention, the customer saved a massive $1,500 on a single transfer fee. Don’t believe it can be done? Put Airwallex to the test and open a business account for free.

“Airwallex provides us with flexibility and cost savings in dealing internationally. We used Airwallex to receive our recent global fundraising round and pay international suppliers and are saving at least 5% per dollar transferred versus the big banks.”
George van Dyck
Finance Manager, Zoomo
“Airwallex has been a game changer for us. I cannot recommend these guys enough. The forex services are super efficient and super competitive. The customer service is not gold-plated, it's solid gold. One of the best eCommerce services for merchants we have come across since Paypal hit the scene 20 years ago."
CEO, Cosmetics Now
“Airwallex is our one-stop shop for all our banking needs, in one easy-to-use interface. Without Airwallex, we would not have been able to scale our business as fast as what we’ve been able to achieve.”
Andrew Ford and Rosa-Clare Willis
“Having all our global SaaS subscriptions in one place has streamlined our finance processes and enabled better tracking and control of expenses. It’s even better knowing that Airwallex isn’t hitting us with any international transaction fees.”
Chief Operating Officer, Dovetail
“Airwallex has made it really easy to pay our suppliers in any currency. We have not only saved $10,000 each month, but our suppliers now get their payments faster and in-full. We receive a notification once it’s dispatched, and it eliminates the worry factor of where our money is at. This is important for us to keep building a strong relationship with our suppliers.”
