Payments for Platforms is a solution for clients who operate with a platform business model to build an ideal end-to-end payment experience in their ecosystems. Typical clients include marketplaces, SaaS platforms, on-demand service providers, etc.

With Payments for Platforms, you can enjoy the benefits including:

  • Easily connect your sellers, service providers, or sub-merchants to your platform
  • Provide multiple financial products to your connected accounts while staying compliant with the existing local regulations (like PSD2 in Europe)
  • Reconcile fund flows between you and your connected account at the transaction level in an easy way with reports generated by Airwallex

We understand that each platform is different and there are many factors to consider when choosing the right model to integrate with. The table below provides a summary view of the currently supported models and how those behave in regards to the platform and connected account.
