Why we were founded
iPiD is a fast-growing, venture-backed fintech start-up that is founded by a global team who have held senior roles at major payments and technology companies, including SWIFT and Thomson Reuters. Together, we share a vision to simplify cross-border payments to be as easy as a text message.
We achieve this by partnering with financial services providers (e.g. banks, payment fintech, wallets, remittance companies) to deliver a suite of proxy look-up, request-to-pay and payment-to-wallet services. It is a first-of-its-kind service that makes cross-border payments easy by needing only a simple proxy for the payee’s identity. We act as a data orchestrator and enable global payments based on a phone number, email address, QR code, Corporate Registration Number and other aliases.
iPiD is built for all – we do not replace banks, payment fintech, wallets, remittance companies, nor do we replace payment rails. We provide an addressing and messaging service that all can leverage to offer a better user experience.
