Airwallex launches major B2B rewards program in Australia
Airwallex Rewards will provide Australian SMBs exclusive access to A$20,000 worth of discounts and offers from world-leading business software platforms
MELBOURNE, AUSTRALIA – 1 September 2020 – Global fintech leader Airwallex has launched a business-to-business (B2B) rewards program, Airwallex Rewards. It is designed to support Australian small-to-medium businesses (SMBs) who are either shifting online or accelerating their digital strategy.
Airwallex is providing up to A$20,000 worth of exclusive offers from some of the world’s leading business software platforms. Australian customers will be the first in the world to access Airwallex Rewards, before this program is rolled out in other markets.
Participating in this program are major global brands such as Amazon Web Services (AWS), Xero, Klarna, and Borderless360, as well as leading Australian-founded companies such as Linktree, Dear Systems, Qwilr, and Incodocs. More partners, including Slack and Neto, will be added to the program soon.
The Airwallex Rewards program boasts:
Access to leading solutions: Across a number of categories ranging from cloud, ecommerce to logistics, Airwallex has assembled some of the world’s leading business software and cloud companies which provide technology solutions for businesses. The suite supports most business types but will be especially beneficial for those with strong tech reliance, such as start-ups, ecommerce and digital agencies.
Immediate redemption of rewards: Unlike other loyalty programs that unlock rewards over time through the accrual of points, Airwallex customers will have immediate access to the full range of offers in the Airwallex Rewards program.
In addition to being offered with exclusive discounts, global subscriptions purchased with Airwallex Borderless Cards will incur 0% international transaction fees on non-AUD currency billings, passing on even more savings to customers.
Some of the offers available include:
US$5,000 in AWS credits valid for two years
20% off Dear Systems monthly subscriptions for 12 months.
Neil Luo, Head of Growth at Airwallex Australia said, “More and more Australian SMBs are adopting digital-first models in response to changing customer behaviour and expectations. However, it can be confusing for businesses to know where to begin or identify what software they should use. The guiding principle behind Airwallex Rewards is to take the hassle of identifying what digital software or solutions businesses should adopt. We have only partnered with some of the world’s leading tech software providers – most of which we, as a business, use ourselves.”
“Airwallex Rewards will continue to grow over time with additional participating organisations and categories, selected based on feedback from our customers, addressing their growing needs. The aim is for Airwallex Rewards to eventually become Australia’s most comprehensive B2B rewards program.”
Andrew Boyd, Head of Digital Native Business, AWS in Australia and New Zealand said, “At AWS, we believe that the cloud is the best place to build startups, and with the broadest and deepest set of cloud products and services available, we have the tools that enable businesses to launch quickly and cost effectively. We are pleased to extend our support for Australian startups and help them to accelerate growth and drive innovation through the Airwallex Rewards program.”
Angus Trigg, Head of Australia Communications & Public Policy at Klarna said, "Klarna is excited to collaborate with the innovative team at Airwallex and provide more opportunities and introductions for their customers. Airwallex and Klarna both share a passion for delighting our customers. Globally, Klarna has 85 million of the world's most engaged consumers and through our involvement we're keen to introduce more great retailers to our community and frictionless customer experience."
