Release Notes: October 2021

Hey, there. If you’re reading this, it’s probably your job to drive growth and streamline your financial processes.

We understand your challenges, and we’re here to solve them. 

Here’s a roundup of the helpful new features, improvements and bug fixes to help you get the most out of Airwallex.

New features 🎉

👛 Leave your wallet at home.

Your smartphone does it all now. And your Airwallex Cards are now compatible with Apple Pay and Google Pay™. Admins can create a card in seconds. Users can add it to their preferred digital wallet immediately.

🔗 Get paid fast with Payment Links.

Generate a one-time or reusable link or QR code and let your customers pay in 130+ currencies, while the funds settle in your preferred currency. It’s the easiest way to deliver a great customer experience and reduce your debtor days.

Improvements 🎨

👥 Headcount increasing? We’ve made it easier for you to issue more cards (and still keep track of spending) to support your growing business’ needs.

So far, we’ve rolled this improvement out to our AU, UK and HK customers. Stay tuned, America.

  • The problem: A single person can have multiple cards at once. Those cards add up over time. You needed a way to view and manage cardholders, not just the cards themselves.

  • The solution: Now, card admins can easily view expenses by employee (or card) from the transactions table. You’ll appreciate this logical, more organised experience.

⛵️Onboard your team faster with a smooth-sailing cardholder process.

  • The problem: You told us there were too many steps to apply for a card before.

  • The solution: We listened and streamlined the onboarding experience, so employees no longer have to search for their government-approved ID to secure an Airwallex card. Coming soon to regions outside of AU.

🇳🇿 Over the ditch, you can now make faster and cheaper NZD payments like a local. No more $10 SWIFT fees.

📱Good news for Android users, too. Admins and customers can now view and manage employee cards on the go via the Airwallex app.

  • 🔥 tip for admins: search the employee list by name or last four digits to freeze, cancel cards or change spending limits.

Fixes 🐞

📆 Fixed: Scheduled transfers

We’ll send transfers scheduled for future dates on the date you specify. Previously some transfers weren’t doing what they were told, dispatching immediately. But now, it’s under strict orders to listen to you and you alone.

Upcoming arrivals 🧳

💸 Want to scale your business, not your workload?

We’ll be rolling out our end-to-end expense management solution very soon, so you’ll only need one login to submit, review and approve expenses. Seamlessly sync your expense data and receipts into Xero and make reconciling and month-end reporting a breeze.

The end of the year may be just around the corner, but we'll continue to roll out new releases all the way into 2022. No slowing down here. See you next time!

Have something you’d like to see earlier on our roadmap? Let us know here.
