‘Tis the season for online shopping (and selling). Today, just weeks after the Texas-based company opened its Asia Pacific office in Sydney, Australia, mass payout platform Hyperwallet began supporting disbursements from Amazon’s Australia marketplace.
Starting today, Amazon sellers across the globe can leverage Hyperwallet’s multi-currency payout solution to accept disbursements from sales made on Amazon’s new Australia-based marketplace. Simon Banks, Hyperwallet’s Asia Pacific Managing Director, said that the company aims to extrapolate Amazon’s usability into “the supply side of marketplace transactions, streamlining the onboarding and disbursement process for independent sellers.” To register, sellers use the Login with Amazon option on Hyperwallet’s page. Once registered, users benefit from Hyperwallet’s network of banking relationships across the globe.
After noting that the new development adds to the ways Hyperwallet is supporting the international freelance community, company CEO Brent Warrington said, “Faster, more affordable cross-border disbursements is something we’re very passionate about, and we’re happy to offer that experience to sellers on the Amazon Marketplace.”
Hyperwallet most recently presented at FinDEVr Silicon Valley 2016, where Bill Crowley, Chief Product Officer, and Blair Olynyk, Software Architect, gave a presentation titled, Pay the Planet: Implementing Frictionless Global Payout Distribution. Since it was founded in 2000, Hyperwallet has distributed billions of dollars in payouts to more than 8 million individuals worldwide. Earlier this year the company bolstered its loyalty program through an integration with Dosh. In January, Hyperwallet expanded to London to support the region’s burgeoning population of gig economy workers.
