Your challenges...

Our solutions…

Increased costs of international expansion

Being merchant of record means costs for processing payments, customer service and ticketing logistics.

Revenue Generation

Capture FX revenue to offset costs of payment processing - many existing clients capture in excess of 3% of their cross- border sales revenue.

Currency risk

Exposure to currency risk across the settlement cycle can have a large impact on businesses – some payment method exposures are as great as 7-10 days.

Risk mitigation

Automatically eliminate any currency risk at a transactional level. Rates can be guaranteed† for as long as you need (includes cancellations and refunds).

Process complexity

Multiple complex processes to effectively manage transactions, netting, settlement and reconciliation.


Automated pricing, FX and settlement reduces operational overheads. Remove manual reconciliation processes and enhance your control framework.

Losing customer sales

25% of customers leave a travel website if they don’t see local pricing.

Increased sales

Customers can see pricing in their currency and are less likely to go elsewhere to make their purchase.
