  • UnionPay Point of Sale and Online solutions and MoneyExpress service launched

Richard Proksa, Chief Executive Officer of MoneySwap, said:

“The year under review not only saw us reposition MoneySwap as a full service payments processing provider, but has also laid the foundations for the roll-out of our offering to the UK market in the year ahead. Our fully developed suite of UnionPay enabled payment solutions, along with the recent appointment of our UK sales team, places MoneySwap in a strong position to sign-up UK merchants to UnionPay functionality, and in the process, allow them to participate in the rapid growth in demand for goods and services from the Chinese consumer. I look forward to providing updates on our progress in the year ahead.”
