Airwallex Testimony

"As the business scaled, we needed a global payment solution that could maximise our productivity and streamline our operational cost. Airwallex Borderless Cards can be used both virtually and physically, and they function as multi-currency corporate cards that enable businesses to easily make card payments anywhere that Visa is accepted."

Gavin Black

Interim CEO and Chief Financial Officer, PURE Group

Airwallex Testimony

"When we internally discussed overseas expansion, we also considered the challenge of international payments which indeed impose a lot of constraints. Airwallex’s multi-currency Global Account, in a way, can help us expand our business to foreign markets. In the future, we look for increasing the number of channels for our customers to make purchase. We also hope to expand overseas in order to increase the sources of customers of Travel Expert."

Gordon Lam

Senior Marketing and Product Manager, Travel Expert
