Manpreet Haer & Zaki Farooq, Co-Founder, PayFuture
According to the latest report from the World Trade Organization (WTO), there’s impressive growth in international trade after a deep, COVID-induced layoff. However, despite a surge in the number of international payments made, the financial transaction process across geographic boundaries remains complex and inefficient. Starting from the regulatory complexities to routing and payment processing between stakeholders, the transaction process becomes more complicated along the pipeline, resulting in increased costs and prolonged timelines. Committed to changing this industry narrative, PayFuture, a leading global FinTech payment solution provider offers an AI technology-based innovative payment gateway connector that enables connection to localised payment solutions across multiple global emerging market regions. This allows offshore merchants the ability to access net new revenue streams across emerging markets with ease. Using one simple API, users can simply use PayFuture’s switch/connector gateway function to access all emerging market country’s local payment options.

By facilitating entry and success for merchants in India, Payfuture established credibility with many online merchants and a reputation as the most trusted partner for emerging markets. Since then, the company has expanded in the Indian subcontinent, Africa, South East Asia, LATAM, and East Asia.
