Zai has announced a partnership with TerraPay, a leading global payments infrastructure company. This partnership enhances both companies' ability to scale their offerings and deliver real-time, transparent cross-border payments globally.

Supporting businesses across various industries internationally, from fintechs to property technology companies, in simplifying, streamlining, and scaling complex payment workflows. Its sister brand, CurrencyFair, is a cross-border currency exchange platform offering competitive rates, fast, reliable transfers, and excellent customer service.

This partnership supports both Zai and CurrencyFair's product suite, with better coverage across the global payments ecosystem, collections and payout capabilities across multiple channels in the markets they operate in. Additionally, the partnership improves TerraPay's collection and payout offering in markets where Zai and CurrencyFair are leaders.

Zai has close to 250 employees currently, with plans to grow to 450 by 2025, and is expanding its presence across APAC, UK, USA and the Middle-East in the coming year.

"It's exciting to partner with a leading global payments company like TerraPay - and what makes this partnership so appealing is the improved product suite for both companies as Zai continues to scale globally.

This partnership builds upon our already market-leading products, providing fast cross-border payments that are completely transparent, for our B2C, B2B and enterprise customers. Zai is launching in multiple markets over the coming year and expanding our global footprint, and we look forward to working with Terrapay and growing this partnership," says Sanjeev Kumar, Chief Product Officer, Zai.
