Lianlian Global Launches Innovative Global Payout Service with Thunes as First Strategic Partner

China, 10th Jul 2024 – Lianlian Digitech’s brand, Lianlian Global, announced that it has released a new global payment service, Lianlian Global Payout Service (LGPS), providing global payment services for cross-border payment service providers (PSPs), banks, and other licensed financial institutions. Through Lianlian’s global payment network, LGPS helps PSPs and other licensed financial institutions break through international payment boundaries and achieve faster, more stable and safer fund transfers.

Economic globalization, regional integration, and digital development have increased the frequency of cross-border trade activities, driving higher demand for cross-border payments. Traditional systems like bank wire transfers, remittance companies, and third-party payments are commonly used but come with challenges such as high costs, slow processing times, and complex procedures due to manual operations and multiple intermediary banks. The rise of cross-border e-commerce and online B2B transactions has further fragmented the payment flows, making traditional payment methods less effective for the current needs of cross-border trade.

To address these challenges, Lianlian Global has launched the LGPS product. This innovative solution empowers overseas PSPs, banks, and other financial institutions to offer global payment services essential for cross-border trade. With LGPS, these institutions can make payments to China and various regions worldwide through a unified API interface, ensuring a more transparent, secure, efficient, and traceable global payment experience.

Lianlian Global’s LGPS effectively addresses the pain points of traditional cross-border payments. It supports various business scenarios, including B2B and B2C, meeting the diverse payment needs of different customers. LGPS offers fast transaction speeds and low costs by leveraging a global fund processing network and optimizing intermediate links through the local bank clearing network, allowing real-time RMB credits without multiple intermediary banks. This approach reduces handling fees and costs significantly. Additionally, based on more than 60 payment service licenses and qualifications in the system and its independently developed anti-money laundering and anti-fraud risk control system, Lianlian can provide cross-border merchants with safe and compliant full-process and full-link cross-border services, making cross-border payments more secure. The process is transparent, enabling customers to initiate transactions, query balances, and download reports with ease.

The launch of Lianlian Global’s LGPS product is gaining worldwide recognition. Thunes, a global money movement innovator and cross-border payment infrastructure platform, will be Lianlian Global’s first strategic partner. By leveraging the network coverage of both companies, this partnership enhances the global payment capabilities of both Lianlian Global and Thunes, providing bilateral support for their clients and expanding their reach.

Thunes has one of largest digital wallet networks in the world. Thunes provides cross- border payments in 130 countries with a reach of over 3 billion digital wallet accounts and over 4 billion bank accounts. 

Thunes CEO, Floris de Kort, commented: “We welcome Lianlian to the Thunes Global Network with direct, real-time connectivity to 3 billion digital wallets and 4 billion bank accounts around the world. Lianlian is a highly respected leader in cross-border e-commerce, and we are happy to partner with them to provide the fastest, most transparent and fully compliant global payment solutions in the industry to over 1 million merchants in China.”
