July release notes: FX Rate Alerts and optimised Payment Links
When it comes to business, we know how important it is to be in the driver’s seat. That's why this month’s updates are all about helping you take control of FX, manage your risk appetite and steer your business to new heights.
New features 🎉
Get the best deal on FX with Rate Alerts 🔔
Feel confident that you’re always getting the best deal when exchanging currencies. Airwallex Rate Alerts notify you instantly when FX market rates change. Choose which currency pairs you’d like to track and get an alert when they reach your specified rates. So you're always one step ahead.
Global payment acceptance for travel agencies 🌎
If you’re in a deferred-delivery industry such as travel, where the delivery of the service happens much later than the payment, you can now accept and process card transactions online with Airwallex Payments.
Airwallex Payments allow you to collect one-time and recurring payments from your global customers in their preferred currencies, whilst eliminating unnecessary FX fees and reducing chargebacks.
Open a local currency account in Denmark 🇩🇰
You can now open a local currency account in Denmark in a few clicks and collect Danish Krone directly into your Airwallex account.
Build a frictionless global checkout on Shopify 🛍️
If you use Shopify, you can natively integrate the Airwallex global checkout into your store. That means you’ll benefit from everything the Airwallex checkout offers - including like-for-like settlement in multiple currencies and 160 local payment methods - without redirecting your customers away from Shopify. A better payment experience for your customers and for you.
Manage risk your way ⚠️
No one knows your customers better than you. That’s why we’re giving you additional control over your risk appetite. You can now create customised Watchlists via our API and block or verify customers based on a number of different transaction and customer rules. These rules will override our risk engine. Watchlist items can be queried, added, updated or deleted easily.
Transfer funds globally on the move ➡️
If you use the Airwallex iOS app, you can now pay your global staff and suppliers on the move, whether they’re an existing contact or a new recipient. It’s just one of the ways we’re making global money movement easier.
Share Payment Links on social media and reach more customers 📱
We’ve optimised Airwallex Payment Links for social media. Our Payment Links are now shorter and display a preview with your branding when shared on social platforms such as WhatsApp, Facebook Messenger, Twitter, Instagram, Telegram and more.
Upcoming arrivals 🧳
Airwallex employee cards are about to get even smarter. You’ll soon be able to print your business name on your cards, for an even slicker look.
That’s it for our July release round-up. We hope these updates help you on your journey towards global growth.
