ConnexPay is an innovative VC-backed financial technology and payments company offering the first truly combined virtual card issuing and merchant acquiring solution. No other provider in the world is currently offering a solution with ConnexPay's capabilities. In 2018, ConnexPay won the Summit competition at Phocuswright and was named the Most Innovative Start Up. Our platform is designed from the ground up specifically for travel agencies, tour operators, and other travel intermediaries or e-commerce platforms. ConnexPay has numerous patents pending on its technology which fundamentally reduces transaction risks resulting in lower card acceptance costs for clients. ConnexPay's unique model provides unlimited credit for clients to fund supplier payments and frees up additional growth capital. These are just a few of the operational benefits with the ConnexPay model.
