Rapyd is the mobile-first “network of networks” that makes the world’s favorite ways to pay and be paid instantly available through a single API and SDK, so that just as easily as developers could already take cards, they can now accept cash from a merchant in Ghana, a bank transfer from a shopper in the Philippines, or an ATM transfer from a homesick worker looking to send joy back to their family.

Through our partner API we are bringing together local financial specialists from every corner of the world to make the 100s of ways people pay available around the world, so that ecommerce merchants, gig platforms, challenger wallets, remittance platforms, online lenders, and even traditional banks can break free of their old infrastructure and limitations and create new mobile-friendly solutions to make payments faster and smarter.

Founded in 2015, Rapyd is already global, with offices in London, Singapore, Silicon Valley, and Tel Aviv. Rapyd is venture backed and has raised multiple rounds, and currently has funding for a good runway and global expansion.
