Alchemy Pay and ePayments to offer crypto payments down under

  • By Zilla Efrat

Fiat-crypto payments provider, Alchemy Pay, and merchant payment provider, ePayments, have joined forces to offer crypto payments and services in New Zealand and Australia.

As part of the move, Alchemy Pay will leverage ePayments' New Zealand and Australian fiat payment channels and provide global crypto service providers with access to users in these markets.

After integration with Alchemy Pay, ePayment's merchants will be able to manage fiat and crypto transactions from a backend portal provided by Alchemy Pay. They will be able to accept payments in fiat and cryptocurrencies.

"This partnership with ePayments will allow us to enter the New Zealand and Australian markets where crypto adoption is becoming exceptionally strong,” says Alchemy Pay CEO, John Tan.

“Crypto payments are the future and we are pleased to be working with merchants who have a deep familiarity with the local markets. We are also happy to be opening up our crypto clients to new users in new markets."

ePayments is a New Zealand-based payment company servicing airport and hospitality merchants in Australia and New Zealand. Notably, it was the first company to bring Asia's highly popular WeChat Pay into New Zealand. ePayments works with New Zealand merchants and clients such as THL, the New Zealand Post, and TravelPharm.

"Alchemy Pay is a leader in the crypto payment space,” says Leo Liu, CEO of ePayments. “Its network of partners and crypto payments capabilities gives our merchants the cutting edge in modern digital payment."

Alchemy Pay says it has become increasingly important in the blockchain space as a payment bridging service for the industry. Leading networks such as Elrond, Polygon, Algorand, NEAR and Avalanche are integrating Alchemy Pay's fiat payment channels. Alchemy Pay now has over 300 fiat payment channels that allow crypto services, DApps, and networks to onboard users with popular local and global mobile wallets as well as more traditional card and bank transfer payments.
