ESW selects APEXX’s payments orchestration layer to process its US & Canadian transactions
By Edlyn Cardoza
APEXX Global, a multi-award-winning global payments platform, recently announced its selection by ESW to be a primary U.S. and Canadian Transaction processor. ESW, a multi-billion dollar global direct-to-consumer (DTC) e-commerce giant, empowers the world’s most beloved brands and retailers to make international shopping safer, simpler, faster and end-to-end.
Under this partnership, APEXX will help ESW grow its business by providing a robust, scalable platform that reduces unnecessary costs and optimises the acceptance of merchant transactions. Their technology will enable ESW to access APEXX’s entire payment ecosystem via a single, trusted, and scalable platform.
ESW’s roster of clients includes many of the world’s most recognisable luxury, apparel, beauty, and personal care brands. The company’s success across large and enterprise clients is achieved through fast, capital-light e-commerce solution implementation across 200 markets in areas such as localised checkouts, logistics, payments, omnichannel, apps, and unique hybrid fulfilment models.
As a leader in European markets, APEXX offers unparalleled global connections and coverage with over 120 integration partners and multiple enterprise clients, including ASOS, XE.com, Swoon, AirSeychelles, and many more. APEXX Global currently operates across more than 70 countries saving users an average of 15% on processing costs. This partnership comes on the heels of ESW announcing its plans to acquire Scalefast, an e-commerce-as-a-service provider based in the U.S. The recently announced deal is expected to expand ESW’s capabilities with turnkey localised stores, digital ‘pop up’ stores and faster ramp-up time for retailers and brands to build their entire DTC channel.
To assist ESW in the U.S. and Canada, APEXX will utilise intelligent routing and optimisation capabilities to reduce complexity while increasing acceptance rates and reducing costs, ultimately improving the entire purchasing experience.
This agreement represents an extension of what has already been a successful relationship between the two companies. Since ESW and APEXX started working together in 2019, the relationship has expanded across European markets and continues with today’s deal.
APEXX’s Co-Founder and Managing Director, Rodney Bain, commented on the partnership: “We are excited to announce a new partnership with one of the most recognised and forward thinking e-commerce brands globally. ESW selecting APEXX reaffirms the value we bring as a best-in-class, international payments optimisation solution. I’m very much looking forward to getting started and helping add efficiency to ESW’s sales operations.”
ESW’s VP of Payments, Jason Macklin, commented: “We all know that part of your success as an eCommerce business is reducing friction at the point of sale. I’m excited and looking forward to finding greater efficiencies across our payments infrastructure with APEXX, to provide our customers with the most localised, seamless shopping experience possible.”
