Partnerships Trending World-Region-Country

Wise Enters 2023 With 60 Partners Across Europe, North America and Asia

Wise, the global paytech, launched 15 new partnerships in 2022 and enters 2023 with a total of 60 partners globally.

These partnerships are made possible through Wise Platform, which allows banks and businesses to embed the power of Wise into their existing platform. Almost 10 million new customers gained access to Wise, via Wise Platform, in 2022 alone.

What’s more, Wise Platform launched in four new markets last year. In Israel with credit card company Max, in Turkey through Wise’s partnership with Birlesik Odeme and Fibabanka, in the UAE with neobank Wio, and in Hong Kong with virtual bank ZA Bank.

Asia and North America

Wise Platform also deepened its footprint in Asia and North America. It expanded in two areas in particular: investments and business services. In Singapore, Wise Platform partnered with Tiger Brokers and GoTrade to help make global investing easier for everyone. While in the US, new partners AvidXchange, Ramp, Brex, and Firstbase are providing businesses with key tools to help them operate internationally.

UK partners

In the UK, Wise launched with Wagestream, a financial wellbeing app for front line workers, and Onfolk, an HR and payroll company. This strengthened its impact on how people around the world are paid by their employers.

Expanding old partnerships

In addition to new partners, 2022 also saw Wise Platform grow existing partnerships. This included introducing new business services with Monzo and Yapeal, a freelancer service with Multiplier, and a quicker, expanded service with Deel.#

Finally, Wise Platform launched International Receive, which makes it easier for banks to efficiently and reliably receive international payments through the Swift network. International Receive gives neobanks an easy route to enabling customers to receive money from abroad. Furthermore, it allows established banks to benefit from Wise Platform’s speed and affordability. The integration can be done in just a matter of weeks.

“Wise Platform’s expansion is a testament to the relevance of our offer to businesses and their customers across multiple industries. We allow our partners to integrate a market-leading cross-border payments infrastructure into their platform quickly and at relatively low cost. This allows them to better serve customers while maintaining a focus on their core business.

“With every partnership we offer more customers and businesses access to fast, cheap, convenient and transparent international payments. We look forward to working with more partners – both new and old – in 2023 as we move ever-closer to our mission of money without borders for everyone.”
