Optty & Triple-A partner to offer cryptocurrency payment options
By Gloria Mathias
Optty, a Singapore-based payments platform, has partnered with Triple-A, a licensed crypto payment gateway, to add cryptocurrency as a payment option on the platform.
As the central hub connecting and streamlining a robust global network of Buy Now Pay Later (BNPL) providers, this association marks the launch of Optty’s sixth payment architecture, further expanding viable payment options for merchants and convenience for their end customers.
“As the world’s first true universal payments platform, Optty is agnostic and supportive of payments inclusion, a unique position designed to help retailers offer more choice than ever at checkout,” said Natasha Zurnamer, CEO, and Founder of Optty.
“With one simplified integration, not only can retailers access over 90 BNPLs and local payment methods in over 120 countries — they can now switch on crypto payments, a natural progression in our aim to simplify payments for retailers all over the world,” added Zurnamer.
Through the collaboration with Triple-A’s white-label crypto payment gateway, Optty enables retailers and merchants to offer various payment methods. This allows them to test and learn which payment types best resonate with their customers.
With Optty’s vast global network of gateways that license the company’s unique payment stacks, merchants and retailers can now leverage Triple-A’s gateway to accept cryptocurrencies such as Bitcoin (BTC), Ethereum (ETH), Tether (USDT), and USD Coin (USDC). Triple-A’s crypto payment gateway is compatible with all crypto wallets, allowing customers to make hassle-free payments using their preferred wallet.
Through real-time crypto-to-fiat conversions facilitated by Triple-A, retailers can receive payments in cryptocurrencies without the need to manage them on their balance sheets and constantly monitor fluctuating exchange rates. Retailers enjoy next-day local currency bank settlements in 50+ currencies, enabling quick access to funds in their preferred currency.
“We are excited to partner with Optty and bring crypto payments to their merchants,” noted Eric Barbier, CEO of Triple-A. “This collaboration will help merchants take advantage of the growing demand for cryptocurrency payments without the hassle of managing crypto assets on their balance sheets.”
