Currenxie Unveils Cross Border Visa Business Cards in Hong Kong

by November 1, 2021

Currenxie, a Hong Kong-headquartered cross-border payments company, announced that it has launched a Visa card to provide businesses with a more convenient and secure way to manage global payments.

The Currenxie Visa Business Card is available now to the company’s clients in Hong Kong and will be also rolled out across the UK and Europe in early 2022.

The launch is the company’s first release in a multi-year partnership with Visa to bring corporate cards to modern, borderless companies, and follows Currenxie’s recent US$ 10 million Series A funding round.




Currenxie’s Global Account clients can apply for and receive virtual Visa cards instantly via the app.

The card number is held securely in the app, allowing Currenxie to issue optional, physical companion cards that do not need a number printed on them.

The virtual card will also allow companies to easily issue employee cards for simple and effective spend management.

The introduction of the Currenxie Visa Business Card expands the payment options for Currenxie’s business clients beyond bank-to-bank transfers to include all forms of business expenses, powered by Visa’s comprehensive global merchant network.
