SYDNEY, AUSTRALIA, 2 July 2019 — Hyperwallet, a PayPal service and leading global payouts provider to millions of independent workers, has announced the successful integration of mass payment distribution for Jayride (ASX:JAY), the world’s leading online airport transfer marketplace.
Harnessing Hyperwallet’s development tools and widget integration, Jayride has embedded payout functionality directly onto its platform, delivering a streamlined and seamless experience for its global community of 3000+ transfer companies.
Jayride Managing Director Rod Bishop said one of the company’s top priorities is to pay its transport partners quickly, efficiently and in their own currency.
“Hyperwallet’s global network and its easy-to-integrate platform have proved to be the right choice to support our hyper-local approach as we continue to expand into new destinations around the world.”
Since integrating, Jayride has leveraged Hyperwallet’s financial network to rapidly scale its operations from five markets to more than 69 countries and 1500+ airports in just 10 months. The partnership enables flexibility to build a fast and efficient payment process directly within Jayride’s platform via Hyperwallet’s various API calls to pay the transport aggregator’s global partners in their respective local currencies.
Jayride, which launched in 2012 and successfully debuted on the Australian Stock Exchange (ASX) in 2018, has become the world’s leading airport transfer platform, connecting airport travellers to private transfer and shared shuttle companies, a potential $100 billion market.
