Tazapay, Singapore, Proxtera, paymentsToday, Proxtera, a network of business-to-business (B2B) marketplaces that facilitates cross-border trade for small-medium enterprises (SME), and Tazapay, a digital escrow service for cross-border trade, announced their partnership to launch Proxtera Protect, Powered by Tazapay to provide international buyers and sellers with a secure and protected payment service to streamline global trade.

In partnership with Proxtera, Tazapay will provide a digital escrow service for both buyers and sellers connected via participating platforms on the Proxtera network. Through Proxtera Protect, SMEs will be able to complete transactions through the escrow payments service, providing a critical layer of protection and confidence when doing business with a new partner.

“Tazapay is committed to solving a long-term problem for SMEs, which is that they are often restricted from growing their number of trading partners due to lack of trust around shipments and payments,” said Rahul Shinghal, CEO of Tazapay. “This hinders business success, and Proxtera is similarly focused on providing SMEs with options and tools that allow them to work with a wide range of business partners and drive growth. We’re pleased to power Proxtera Protect and grow alongside Proxtera as both entities focus on their missions to elevate the local economy by empowering SMEs with global trade opportunities.”

The first trading corridor to be activated for Proxtera Protect is between India and Singapore. Tazapay is said to offer secure digital background checks and an escrow service to hold funds. Proxtera Protect also ensures that monies are returned should shipments not arrive.

“Proxtera’s mission is to unlock new trade and business opportunities for SMEs around the world, and Proxtera Protect, Powered by Tazapay is a critical component to bridge the trust gap that hinders cross-border trade,” said Shirish Jain, program director at Proxtera. “With the addition of trusted partners such as Tazapay, Proxtera can deliver on its promise to provide SMEs a wealth of business tools and opportunities at their fingertips, opening up pathways to growth and driving economic recovery to help businesses thrive in the ‘New Normal’.”

So far, Proxtera has helped to connect approximately 300,000 SMEs to new trading partners across Singapore, the Philippines, India, and Kenya; and offers a host of digital tools and services that help SMEs more quickly access, evaluate and act on business opportunities.
