NEW YORK, Dec. 22, 2014 /PRNewswire/ — Payoneer Inc., a leading online payments company transforming the way businesses send and receive cross-border payments, is now facilitating payouts for merchant suppliers on Wish, a top mobile social e-commerce application that offers consumers a highly personalized shopping experience.
Payoneer facilitates payouts to Wish’s merchant suppliers globally through its cross-border payments platform. Through Payoneer’s API, Wish fully integrates payouts with its current business flow, enabling Wish merchant suppliers to instantly receive their payments directly to their Payoneer accounts and have multiple ways to receive their funds in their local currency.
Over the past three years, Wish has quickly grown to host more than tens of millions of users worldwide. It is consistently ranked one of the top mobile applications in both the Android Shopping and iPhone Lifestyle categories, with the majority of orders originating from the Wish mobile application. Wish, with its unique global supply chain networks in countries around the world, needed to provide its merchant suppliers with a compliant way to easily receive payments for their sales. To that end, Payoneer now enables merchant suppliers on Wish to receive their payments through Payoneer’s various payment solutions.
"At Wish, we aim to make the selling process as easy as possible for our merchant suppliers," said Danny Zhang, co-founder of Wish. "Merchant suppliers simply upload their products, abide by the trading rules and guarantee good quality and on-time delivery. Partnering with Payoneer makes the payout process simple by ensuring merchant suppliers receive their funds quickly and seamlessly. This partnership will help us attract more merchant suppliers around the world and increase overall revenue."
Payoneer has already built strong momentum in the Asia Pacific region. The company recently announced a strategic investment from Ping An Group, a leading integrated Chinese financial services provider and the largest non-state-owned enterprise in China. In addition, Payoneer recently appointed former SWIFT executive Patrick de Courcy to lead its Asia Pacific business activities.
"Payoneer and Wish have a shared vision for how merchant suppliers from all over the world can rapidly grow their businesses in the modern digital economy," said Scott Galit, CEO of Payoneer. "Both companies have made significant investments to help merchants around the world sell globally. We are excited to play a role in facilitating growth for such a unique mobile commerce platform by making payouts to Wish’s international sellers easier and more efficient. There is so much opportunity in the Asia Pacific region, and Payoneer is continuing to extend its position there as a leading global payments provider."
