UK-based banking and admin app ANNA has collaborated with digital payment platform Payoneer today. The partnership aims to facilitate international payments for ANNA’s customers including small businesses and freelancers and allow them to receive payments in USD or EUR directly into their account.
“Joining forces with Payoneer is a truly significant addition to ANNA’s services. Business is global and many of our customers work internationally. We can now enable them to reach across country borders for the first time – and at a critical time for these small businesses and freelancers who are working hard to maintain their livelihoods,” said Andy Roberts, ANNA’s Head of Channel Partnerships.
According to the banking app, clients can use its AI chat-based interface for sharing account details with their customers and get notified about payments, balance and exchange rates. Clients will also benefit from Payoneer’s competitive currency conversion which claims to 75% cheaper than the process of bank conversion.
“We’re teaming up with ANNA to bring artificial intelligence to the world of international payments and to our customers,” said James Allum, Payoneer Regional Head – Europe. “We are experts in providing secure and simple cross-border payment solutions – and now, we are also empowering banks and e-wallets with innovative APIs for cross-border capabilities. We are pleased to facilitate new international opportunities for ANNA customers in this way. As we work to empower more businesses to grow globally, ANNA fits right in with our trusted network of partners.”
