Align Commerce, a next-generation global payments provider serving the small- and medium-sized business (SMB) community, today announced the establishment of its China corridor to allow businesses to easily send and receive payments to and from Asia’s largest economy.
With the value of bilateral trade between the U.S. and China surpassing $555 billion in recent years, businesses in both countries will now reap the benefits of Align Commerce’s revolutionary multi-rail technology that combines the blockchain with traditional payments, simple invoicing and real-time payments tracking.
In celebration of the Chinese Lunar New Year and to mark the opening of this payments corridor, Align Commerce will ring in the Year of the Monkey with an $8 USD flat fee, including foreign exchange fees, for all export-import payments to China from the United States (U.S.) for eight days. The promotion will run from Monday, Feb. 8 through Monday, Feb. 15. Small business owners in the U.S. and China whose businesses depend on reliably sending money overseas can access this promotional offer at https://payments.aligncommerce.com/nyc-8-special/.
“Align Commerce is excited to honor Chinese culture and tradition as we celebrate the Year of the Monkey,” said Marwan Forzley, CEO and co-founder of Align Commerce. “The number eight is traditionally a lucky number in Chinese culture, and we’re hoping to spread the luck around and help small business owners save some money with our ‘$8 for Eight Days’ promotion.”
Align Commerce is engaged in actively disrupting the outdated international payments industry by providing a cheaper, faster alternative for small businesses to make international payments with its proprietary technology, which utilizes the blockchain to send and receive money across borders and currencies. The Align Commerce platform cuts through time-consuming red tape and excessive fees that unnecessarily burden users of traditional wire services, bringing innovation to a system that is long overdue for an overhaul.
