 Lemonway Joins RippleNet to Power Instant, Cost-Effective Euro-to-Euro Payments

Share

Lemonway, the pan-European payment solution for online marketplaces, has today announced a partnership with Ripple, the enterprise blockchain solution for global payments, to enable instant, more transparent and cost-effective European transactions. Through RippleNet, Ripple’s global financial payments network, Lemonway will transform its euro-to-euro payouts which currently make up 80% of its payments volume.

Today, Lemonway’s robust payment processing platform is trusted and used by over 1,400 marketplaces in Europe including 200 crowdfunding platforms. Yet, as it scales, the company finds it needs to increasingly manage large volumes of transactions across multiple merchants and regions across Europe. This creates complexity in managing finances and often leads to delays of up to one week for payouts and settlements.

By turning to RippleNet, Lemonway can use blockchain technology to directly address these operational and complexity challenges, all the while delivering a competitive advantage over its peers. Blockchain technology, like that available on RippleNet, can provide payment providers supporting marketplaces with a more transparent, reliable and efficient way to process payments. It can perform instant payouts, which allows marketplaces to offer more competitive payment services to merchants.

Today’s partnership will see Lemonway improve its euro-to-euro payment corridors thanks to Nium’s global money transfer network, that spans across over 100 markets, 65 in real-time, and utilizes RippleNet for its speed, transparency and cost-efficiency. While the initial focus is on euro-to-euro payments, this could be expanded to other currencies and corridors in the future.

“As a company that embraces innovation, we are always looking for new business models and technological capabilities that can enable us to offer better services to the marketplaces we serve and specifically their beneficiaries,” said Martin-Pierre Gaultier, Chief Commercial & Marketing Officer at Lemonway. “Our partnership with Ripple is a testament to this, and we’re excited to be able to offer faster and more cost-effective payouts to support the evolving needs of our customers and their platforms.”

“Our partnership with Lemonway is another significant endorsement of blockchain technology and its power to transform global payments,” said Asheesh Birla, GM of RippleNet. “In today’s competitive payments climate, technology makes the difference in delivering the best customer experience, and we are thrilled to be Lemonway’s trusted provider of instant and cost-effective B2B payment solutions to help them achieve that.”

ABB: Q3 2020 Results23.10.2020 07:46:00 EESTPress release

“Third quarter revenues in all business areas were still dampened due to the impact of COVID-19, although a strong recovery in China and ongoing cost mitigation efforts supported a strong underlying performance. On the upside, the integration of GEIS and turnaround of Installation Products in Electrification is starting to bear fruit and Motion is performing robustly. Robotics and Industrial Automation, on the other hand, are taking more time to recover,” said Björn Rosengren, CEO of ABB. “We are pushing ahead with the decentralization of the group and the ongoing review of our portfolio, while carrying out our share buyback program as planned. We look forward to presenting further details on our strategic progress at our Capital Markets Day on November 19.” KEY FIGURES CHANGE CHANGE ($ millions, unless otherwise indicated) Q3 2020 Q3 2019 US$ Comparable 9M 2020 9M 2019 US$ Comparable Orders 6,109 6,688 -9% -8% 19,509 21,702 -10% -7% Revenues 6,582 6,892 -4% -4% 18,952 20,910 -9% -7% I
