Now, let’s move to the comparison:
Accounts & Payments
Statrys and Airwallex both offer a multi-currency business account in Hong Kong that can be used to receive and make payments locally and internationally (via SWIFT). Local and international payments must be in the respective currencies set out in the above chart.
Airwallex introduces their account solution in Hong Kong as the combination of a “Global Account” and a “Wallet”. In practice, this combination provides the clients of Airwallex Hong Kong with benefits similar to a multi-currency business account.
Local collection accounts can be used to collect funds from various platforms such as PayPal, Amazon or merchants via SWIFT and/or domestic payment method.
Local payout is a solution that allows you to pay your service providers locally in their local currency. Local payouts are not processed via SWIFT (i.e. the international payment system) but via the local payment system of the country where your supplier is based.
For example, local payout in Vietnam allows you to pay your Vietnamese supplier in Vietnam in Vietnamese Dong.
