LianLian Partners FinTechs on funding offer

By on November 14, 2022 0

Cross-border payment service provider LianLian Global is partnering with three European FinTechs to bolster financing options for e-commerce merchants.

The company said it named the three companies in a Monday, November 14 press release: Spanish e-commerce technology company RITMO, as well as integrated finance company YouLend and small business lending platform Iwoca, both based United Kingdom.

“We are pleased to announce our new partnerships with iwoca, RITMO and YouLend. These partnerships demonstrate our ambitions to become the world’s most integrated cross-border payments growth partner for e-commerce sellers worldwide,” said Kevin Boland, Vice President of International Business Development at LianLian Global.

The payment service provider first introduced credit services to its UK-based customers in August.

First launched in the US earlier this year, LianLian’s move to the UK was aimed at helping merchants and e-commerce entrepreneurs sell overseas, pay and get paid faster on important markets, notably China and the United States.

The cross-border platform is available in the United States on e-commerce marketplaces including Amazon, Google, Rakuten, Shopify, Walmart, Allegro, and others.

Also in August, LianLian Global and London-based FinTech Uncapped launched a partnership to give e-commerce merchants in the US and UK access to funding to grow their business through the LianLian Global platform.

The partnership will allow corporate clients to obtain loans of $100,000 to $10 million in less than 48 hours.

LianLian Global has offices in 12 countries and has partnered with leading financial institutions such as Citi, Deutsche Bank and JP Morgan.
