Choco Up Partners Airwallex to Power E-Commerce Merchants’ Global Expansion

Choco Up, a revenue-based financing and growth platform, has partnered with global fintech platform Airwallex to support the growth of cross-border e-commerce.

Bringing together Airwallex’s global payment technology with Choco Up’s funding platform and analytics tools, this solution will serve as a one-stop-shop for e-commerce companies looking to expand internationally.

Choco Up provides e-commerce companies of all sizes with flexible funding ranging from US$10,000 to $10,000,000 to accelerate their growth.

By connecting the companies’ sales and marketing accounts to their data integration platform, Choco Up can swiftly conduct artificial intelligence-driven risk assessments on applicant companies within hours.

The information gathered enables e-commerce companies to see all their business performance data in one place, helping them identify growth opportunities and optimise their businesses.

Airwallex’s global payment software lets e-commerce businesses make cross-border payments in more than 130 currencies at significantly lower costs because of their market-leading foreign exchange rates.

In addition, Airwallex Borderless Cards will enable e-commerce merchants to make digital payments across borders that are more secure, transparent, and efficient.

Brian Tsang, Co-founder and COO of Choco Up said, “The pandemic has propelled even faster growth of e-commerce companies over the past couple years, many who are in search of new funding and payments options to enable more sustained long-term growth regionally/internationally.

Partnering with Airwallex allows us to build a comprehensive hassle-free payment and funding infrastructure in Asia to empower these businesses to scale across borders without complications and co-create a better future for cross-border e-commerce in Asia.”

Businesses today require easy-to-use, accessible, safe and cost-efficient payment options, and our global financial infrastructure can enable that for businesses like Choco Up.
