“… by using an Airwallex account, merchants can gain secure access to a multitude of payment methods, both globally and locally, in a convenient, fast and affordable way possible,” Adusumilli added.
Settlements can also be received in over seven major currencies, including USD, which can sidestep currency conversion and other fees, according to the release.
