The integration with Western Union Business Solutions will further strengthen our position and network that supports our European clients in managing cross-border and multi-currency payments online. We plan to adopt other Western Union Business Solutions services on our platforms, including our BaaS platform MacrobanX, to accelerate our growth.”

The functionality will be available on both Advapay`s Core Banking software-as-a-service and on-premise banking platforms. Howard Young, Head of Global Channel Partners at Western Union Business Solutions, added: “The integration of Western Union Business Solutions’ developer-friendly, modular APIs into Advapay’s technologies will assist Advapay to provide ready-to-use solutions that increase the speed to market, flexibility, and cost-effectiveness for their fintech clients.”
