Nuvei enhances APAC’s traders’ payments experience with Mastercard Send
By Gloria Mathias
Canadian Fintech company Nuvei and Mastercard have announced that they will enable near-instantaneous payout capabilities for online trading platforms and investors in the Asia Pacific region via Mastercard Send.
Already available to Nuvei customers in Singapore, the Send service which powers rapid payments for merchants, acquirers, governments, consumers and more, wherever they interact worldwide will also be available in Australia and Hong Kong SAR, starting later this year.
Nuvei customers will then be able to process payouts, including business-to-consumer disbursements, and funding transactions between over 1.5 billion debit, credit, and prepaid Mastercard cards.
In the Asia Pacific region, the increasing prevalence of remote working, triggered by the pandemic, has encouraged the parallel growth in the number of new online retail investors, especially younger, first-time users of online trading platforms.
With this new service, online traders will enjoy a simpler and more convenient method of cashing out their investments, backed by Mastercard’s smart fraud protection. Users only need to input their card details and make a request via Mastercard Send, whenever they wish to cash out. This option is easily located in the platform cashier, and funds are immediately accessible.
“Trading platforms rely on fast, secure deposits and payouts to optimize user experience. Partnering with Mastercard Send™ enables us to offer our partners another trusted, instant payout method that will win new traders and generate revenue growth,” said Nuvei Chair and CEO Philip Fayer.
“In today’s always-on world, faster payments are the foundation for accelerated growth,” said Sandeep Malhotra, Executive Vice President, products & innovation, Asia Pacific, Mastercard. “Given the boom in online trading in the Asia Pacific region, Mastercard Send™ presents Nuvei’s customers with the opportunity to improve the payment experience for their users while standing to grow their own revenues – a win-win. Meeting consumers’ expectations for greater speed, wider choice, and tighter security in their payments is no longer negotiable.”
