Airwallex, Bird, Global Payments Infrastructure, FinTech, UKAirwallex, a global payments and financial platform for modern businesses, has partnered with Bird (formerly MessageBird) to power its international payments operations.

Powering Bird’s global payments infrastructure, applications and APIs help 29,000+ businesses streamline conversations and build engaging experiences through their customers’ preferred channels.

Using Airwallex’s global payments and financial infrastructure, Bird has been able to consolidate its financial operations across multiple entities and currencies into a single platform. This has enabled greater visibility and control as well as the automation of supplier payments around the world, leveraging Airwallex’s proprietary foreign exchange (FX) engine.

Bird is also utilising Airwallex’s issuing product to pay its global suppliers and the batch transfers tool to run its payroll across entities. Additionally, the two companies have collaborated on a superior integration via Netsuite that provides greater speed, consistency, and depth of reconciliation for Bird’s finance team.

Robert Vis, Founder and CEO at Bird, said, “Prior to working with Airwallex, we were using legacy systems and technology which slowed down our entire global operations. With Airwallex, we’re able to streamline our payments infrastructure and supercharge our finance operations globally. We are continuing to explore more opportunities to leverage the Airwallex product, and I look forward to deepening our relationship with the team.”

Pranav Sood, Executive General Manager of EMEA at Airwallex, said, “Bird is one of the standout success stories in the Dutch tech community and has revolutionised the way that consumers and businesses communicate on a global scale. We’re proud that Airwallex’s financial technology and payments infrastructure can support Bird’s mission of creating a world where communicating with a business is as easy as talking with a friend. We’re looking forward to deepening our partnership with Bird and serving many more world-leading Dutch businesses with our growing local team in Amsterdam.”
