Canadian payments firm Nuvei Corporation has secured a Major Payment Institution (MPI) license from the Monetary Authority of Singapore.

Nuvei’s payments platform enables businesses to streamline operating expenses for businesses, enhance payment conversion rates, reduce risks, and improve overall customer payment experiences.

Additionally, a collaboration with Mastercard Send now enables Nuvei to offer almost instant payout options to businesses in Singapore, facilitating rapid cross-border payments to billions of cardholders worldwide.

Nuvei’s modular payments platform enables clients to securely connect with customers in over 200 markets worldwide through a single integration, accepting 680 alternative payment methods and offering acquiring in over 50 markets.

The company that it will continue to invest in building its presence across APAC.
