Sila, FinTech, PaaS, Corpay, FLEETCOR, Cross Border Payments, Currency Risk Management Solutions, Global FX Markets, Liquidity, Remittance Payments, USASila Inc., a FinTech software platform that provides payment infrastructure as a service, recently announced that it partnered with Corpay, a FLEETCOR brand that provides integrated cross-border payments and currency risk management solutions. This partnership will expand Sila’s cross-border payment capabilities and access to global FX markets for its customers by providing them with access to 145+ currencies in over 100 countries. Customers will seamlessly move between domestic and international payment options, even more so than before.

“As Sila has continued to grow, they have experienced increased demand from customers for the expanded global payment capabilities that Corpay provides,” said Andrew Howlett, Strategic Partnerships Manager, Corpay Cross-Border Solution. “Our reach in both geographies as well as currency pairs is expansive and will serve Sila’s customers well.”

“Sila’s main goal has always been to provide entrepreneurs with the tools to realize their vision and build a successful business – more often than not with an international component. Corpay with its depth and reach in facilitating cross-border payments can be the perfect partner for our customers’ needs.” said Shamir Karkal, CEO and co-founder of Sila, Inc. “We see a lot of innovation from companies – particularly the ones focusing on emerging markets – that rely on phones and online apps, rather than bank accounts and ATMs, to enable cross-border transactions. Through partnerships like this one, Sila feels well prepared to help those companies succeed.”

Added Karkal, “There is no one-size-fits-all in fintech. Providing entrepreneurs with a choice of best-of-breed service providers best suited to solving their bespoke problems is invaluable. For that reason, Sila has been building an extensive partnership network. I am very proud that Corpay is joining this effort. Our customers will benefit from it.”

Global cross-border payment flows are expected to reach US$156 trillion in 2022, according to a study by EY. While traditionally managed by banks or money transfer operators, innovative FinTech companies are stepping in and can provide cheaper, faster, more transparent alternatives. This is especially true in transactions that involve exotic currencies with limited liquidity. Fueling that development, more and more people use their mobile phones to access banking and e-payment solutions, particularly in emerging markets. These factors point to a vast potential to redistribute market share between incumbents and new entrants in cross-border and remittance payments.
