Nium and Japan’s Queen Bee Capital partner on cross-border payments

By Johney Amala

Nium and Japanese payments firm Queen Bee Capital (QBC) have teamed up to drive international transfer service for QBC’s corporate and individual customers in Japan.

Leveraging Nium’s pay-out capability, QBC will offer its customers instant settlements and access to multiple real-time payment corridors.

The partnership will facilitate B2B, P2P, B2P and P2B cross-border payments from Japan to more than 200 countries and regions with 30 currencies.

It includes payments to the UK, the US, Bangladesh, Singapore, Australia, Europe as well as Latin American countries such as Chile, Argentina, Uruguay, Brazil, and Peru.

Nium chief revenue officer Frederick Crosby said: “We are delighted to announce our partnership with Queen Bee Capital, one of Nium’s first partners in Japan.

“Our platform will enable QBC to provide its customers with seamless real-time payment services to more countries and regions around the world.”

Queen Bee Capital president Shenbo Huang said: “Nium is the established global leader in overseas payments. By integrating with their platform, we’re easily able to cost-effectively reach more corners of the world – most in real-time. We look forward to expanding our relationship in the future.”

In August this year, US-based cryptocurrency exchange Coinbase forayed into Japan through a partnership with local lender Mitsubishi UFJ Financial Group.
