"Before Airwallex, we had no idea when our payments were going to reach our suppliers. Using Airwallex instead of traditional banks has increased the speed of our overseas transfers and optimised our cashflow significantly. We've also saved up to 99% of our TT and FX fees."

Chief Operating Officer, Saturday Club
"Singapore is a small market. Businesses who wish to make decent earnings have to export to other markets, at some point. Before Airwallex, we had to travel physically to China to pay our suppliers. Now, we can transfer money in minutes. If Airwallex isn't around, I think a lot of traditional businesses will take a very long route to success."
Co-founder, Hey! Chips
