Global payment network UnionPay has partnered with FinTech company TripLink to introduce the UnionPay Virtual Commercial Card in Singapore. This initiative marks UnionPay International’s (UPI) first B2B virtual card designed to address the cross-border payment needs of businesses.
The UnionPay Virtual Commercial Card provides a convenient payment solution for businesses, particularly in the airlines and hotel industries, a seamless, cost-effective, and secure method for conducting real-time cross-border transactions.
By leveraging this innovative offering, businesses can significantly reduce the time required for crediting or transferring funds and minimise any administrative fees.
UnionPay’s unique, secure, and encrypted risk control systems allow TripLink’s customers to pay their merchants and partners via UnionPay Virtual Commercial Card, making the transaction safe, secure, and efficient.
The introduction of the UnionPay Virtual Commercial Card aligns with the growing trend of online transactions in the tourism sector. This collaboration will not only meet the evolving needs of businesses but also expand the issuance coverage of UnionPay in Singapore, empowering more companies to engage in global e-commerce.
“We are delighted to partner with TripLink to offer the first UnionPay Virtual Commercial Card tailored to the needs of businesses. B2B payments present a significant opportunity within the payment industry. We are pleased to be able to offer this customised solution for TripLink and its customers, which will propel us forward in addressing some of the pain points encountered by businesses in B2B payment. Our aim is to provide a diverse and comprehensive range of payment solutions catered to the unique needs of our B2B clients,” said Carine Low, Singapore Country General Manager, UnionPay International.
