Release Notes: December 2021

Hello again. With very little of 2021 left, you’d think we’d be slowing down on updates and changes to Airwallex...

...Not on our watch.

December is one of the busiest times of the year for many of you. You, our loyal, fast-moving customers who’ve depended on us for cross-border payments.

So, here’s another highly anticipated round-up of the product improvements and upcoming arrivals to run your business like a well-oiled machine.

Improvements 🎨

🔧 We’ve rebranded Expense Cards to Company Cards, so the name makes better sense to your business.

The problem: You and your employees were confused between employee cards (used for travel and employee benefits) and expense cards (used for subscriptions and office supplies). 

The solution: We gave the cards a new name, so you know exactly how and when to use them. We also wanted to ensure that you make the most of the simplified spending limits available on our web app.

Upcoming arrivals (early 2022) 🧳

🇬🇧 Physical, borderless expense cards are landing in the UK.

Want to shout your team a full English breakfast? Not long now until physical Visa cards disembark. Choose who you want your employee card made out to, and we’ll make and deliver one right to their doorstep.

🇺🇸 Borderless cards: your new best friend for business spend.

Hey, America. Very soon, you’ll be able to create virtual multi-currency cards for your whole team and all your online subscriptions and purchases. Goodbye international transaction fees, hello world.

Instantly issue cards online and transact in 140+ currencies, wherever Visa is accepted. Join our waitlist to be the first to get your hands on one (or 20).

🇨🇦 Canada, we’re coming for you.

Need to collect payments from Canadian customers, eh? It’s not long until we launch our CAD Global Business Account. You’ll soon gain access to the Canadian market without the rules, regulations, and logistical hurdles.

Once again, thank you for stopping by. We hope these updates and changes offer genuine improvements to your business. Next year, we’ll be back with more ways to help you operate beyond the limits of traditional banking and geographical boundaries.
