FRISCO, Texas, Oct. 7, 2020 /PRNewswire/ — Payrix, the acknowledged leader in embedded fintech, today announced its official launch into Australia and New Zealand – as it completed the acquisition of Brisbane-based payment service provider, IntegraPay. The company’s expansion efforts will remove barriers, boost revenue and accelerate money movement for a network of growing software-as-a-service (SaaS) clients with operations overseas.
A digital payments trailblazer in infrastructure-as-a-service technology, Payrix is deeply client-focused, determined to fuel stickiness and monetization for vertically-focused SaaS providers. On the heels of the company’s recent Series A extension, this acquisition positions Payrix as one of few truly independent payment technology providers supporting its clients as part of a global strategy, and will add an additional $1.75B in processing volume to the Payrix Platform.
As more vertical SaaS providers turn to embedded commerce to innovate their product, increase lifetime client value and build enterprise value – Payrix continues to have a laser focus on client success and demonstrate what it takes to reimagine the digital payments ecosystem, again and again.
“We’ve listened to our clients and many have exciting plans to expand globally – it became clear we needed to eliminate obstacles that were holding them back,” said Payrix CEO, Eric Frazier. “We believe IntegraPay’s market-leading technology, customer-centricity and local presence will deliver the seamless user experience and growth results our clients need to scale smart.”
Operating in Australia, New Zealand, the United States and the United Kingdom, IntegraPay is the region’s leading independent payment services provider, processing more than a million transactions a month and delivering flexible solutions, local service and innovative technology to over 5,000 clients.
“We are delighted to have found a partner that shares both our growth ambitions and core values for serving clients,” IntegraPay CEO, John De Stefani said.
The opportunity to monetize payments for growth today with global reach tomorrow is what attracted SaaS leaders like OpusXenta – Australia-based SaaS funeral management platform – and Storable’s best-in-class tech brand in self-storage, to partner with Payrix.
“I wanted to help my customers accept payments, but also grow my company in the right way – thinking about my growth today, and tomorrow. Payrix’s vision for expansion matched our plans, so it was the perfect fit,” said Tony Lorge, Founder and President of OpusXenta.
“We were looking for a partner that could help us serve our global customer base and scale to billions of dollars in card volume,” said Storable, CEO Chuck Gordon. “After an extensive review of our options, we chose Payrix because it was the right mix of technology, client focus and collaborative culture.”
Payrix enables software companies to jump start a high-growth payments business, as well as those ready – to fully seize the embedded payments opportunity as a payment facilitator. Payrix’s out-of-the box, full production platform is seamlessly layered into a client’s platform, mobile app or marketplace. This creates a world-class customer experience and allows clients to tap into additional revenue streams that accelerate growth.
As clients continue to expand overseas, each will have broad, extensive needs with other forms of payment, in multiple currencies. Australia and New Zealand marks a major step forward for Payrix’s client base, existing and prospective. With plans to expand to additional markets in 2021, Payrix will continue to open doors for its software clients to thrive around the world.
IntegraPay was represented by EY (M&A) for this transaction.
