Payments services and technologies provider SafeCharge International Group Ltd (LON:SCH) has announced the opening of its new office in China less than four years after launching in the country.
SafeCharge’s office is located in Shenzhen’s PingAn International Finance Center. The company already has offices in Singapore and Hong Kong.
SafeCharge is a member of UnionPay International and has built up comprehensive business relationships with Alipay and Tencent.
Considering the increasing business with Chinese merchants and the closer relationships with Chinese payments giants Alipay, Tencent and Unionpay, establishing local customer support is a natural next step as we provide the highest quality of service to our partners,” explained Yoav Chernitz, China Business Development Director at SafeCharge. “Demand more is SafeCharge’s motto: we deepen our presence in China in order to deliver more to our customers, to interact more with them and to align our product development more with Chinese customers’ unique requirements.
A strong presence in China is key to support both Chinese clients aiming to expand their business internationally and for non-Chinese companies looking for effective channels to deal with Chinese customers,” added Willy Kwa, Regional Director APAC at SafeCharge. “All customers want the same, no matter where they are located: they want to be supported closely, especially when they are entering unknown markets.
China is taking a leading role in the global economy, specifically in the field of e-commerce and payments innovation” concluded David Avgi, CEO at SafeCharge. “Besides providing local support to new Chinese international players, we have expanded our footprint in China to learn and develop strong partnerships as we believe Chinese companies will play a very important role in the future of fintech innovation.
