The partnerships announced today cements LianLian Global as the world’s most integrated ecommerce payments and financing solution provider for online merchants in the US and UK. Additionally, LianLian Global has become the first global cross-border payment provider to offer significant pre-negotiated financing rates and options for its existing customers.As a result, their customers can expect a transparent finance structure with a flat fee as low as 2% on the capital provided and up to 20% discount from other high-street prices.
“We are pleased to announce our new partnerships with iwoca, RITMO, and YouLend. These partnerships signal our ambitions to become the world’s most integrated cross-border payments growth partner for ecommerce sellers around the world,” said Kevin Boland, VP International Business Development, LianLian Global. “At LianLian Global, we are fully committed to creating a holistic value-added service to ecommerce sellers by addressing their payments and finance needs through our platform.”
LianLian Global understands that a company’s cash reserves are not always sufficient to meet its needs. According to a 2021 Small Business Credit Survey in the US, over a one-third (37%) of companies applied for financing. However, 47% of non-applicants who needed loans did not apply. According to iwoca’s SME Expert Index in the UK, managing cash flow was the most common loan purpose for over two in five small businesses (42%) in Q3 2022, a 16 percentage point increase from the same period last year.
“We’re thrilled to be joining forces with LianLian Global to help marketplace ecommerce sellers grow and reach their potential,” said Harry Cranfield, Partner Channel Manager at iwoca. “This strategic partnership enables us to offer our fast and flexible finance to LianLian Global’s customers, helping them solve cash flow challenges, buy inventory, invest in marketing and more.”
“RITMO is delighted to partner with LianLian Global to help direct-to-consumer and marketplace ecommerce sellers to grow,” said Jorge Juttner, Head of Partnership at RITMO. “This partnership will allow Ritmo to offer LianLian Global’s ecommerce customers access to much-needed finance to support business expansion plans, manage supplier payment challenges, and ensure their marketing budget matches their ambition.”
“We are excited to provide LianLian Global’s marketplace sellers access to the financing they need to drive growth and expansion,” said Tom Longhurst, Strategic Partnerships at YouLend. “YouLend sees LianLian Global as a best-in-class partner that shares our goal of friction-free, global commerce. We’re excited to join forces to unlock opportunities for online merchants as they plan for the upcoming sales period.”
