(NASDAQ: PAYO)), the financial technology company empowering the world’s small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) to transact, do business, and grow globally, has been granted a Major Payment Institution License from the Monetary Authority of Singapore (MAS). The license will enable Payoneer Singapore to enhance the breadth of its products and roll out several new services in Singapore, especially in the areas of account issuance, cross-border money transfer, domestic money transfer, e-money issuance, and merchant acquisition.

“Looking forward, we will continue to prioritize the swift implementation of local services in Singapore, utilizing our secure and rigorously monitored payment platform. In addition, our customer-centric strategy continues to guide operations by prioritizing our current customers and empowering businesses of all sizes to venture into other markets. We are honored and looking forward to fostering a strong and long-term relationship with MAS,” he adds.
