Pomelo Pay expands into cryptocurrency payments in partnership with TripleA

Fintech platform Pomelo Pay has partnered with cryptocurrency payments services provider TripleA to enable businesses financial institutions, merchant acquirers, payment service providers and other fintechs, to offer cryptocurrency payments and pay-outs 

Pomelo’s B2B platform supports businesses with frictionless payments, merchant acquiring services and more. As a unified white label solution, businesses can enable their merchants or partners to accept popular international payment methods securely with the latest technology. 

Following growing demand, Pomelo has expanded its offering opening up more businesses to accept cryptocurrencies directly through secure QR codes and user-friendly payment link technology. With quicker settlement periods and low transaction fees, this new mode of payment saves businesses time and money.

Licensed by Singapore’s Central Bank, TripleA is a white-label crypto payment gateway that connects both crypto users and non-users around the world in a safe and secure manner.  With its instant confirmation, locked-in exchange rates, and real-time fiat conversions, businesses get to pay and get paid in crypto without the hassle of holding or converting digital currencies. Businesses are also shielded from the risk of fraudulent transactions with no chargebacks.

Luxury hospitality pioneer Soneva has become the first business to benefit from the partnership, which will enable it to accept Bitcoin and Ethereum cryptocurrencies across each of its resorts. Enhancing ease of transaction, guests can now confidently make secure international payments at Soneva Fushi, Soneva Jani and Soneva in Aqua in the Maldives, and Soneva Kiri in Thailand.

Tagged as the ‘currency of the future’, cryptocurrency payments are becoming increasingly popular. Nearly 75% of retailers plan to accept either cryptocurrency or stablecoin payments within the next two years, according to a June survey conducted by Deloitte, titled Merchants getting ready for crypto.


Vincent Choi, CEO of Pomelo Pay said, “We are excited to be joining forces with Triple A to enable cryptocurrency as a direct form of payment. TripleA is a reliable and regulated crypto payment solutions exchange provider entrusted by users and merchants, so it is the perfect partner for us. With the growing demand for crypto as a form of payment, this is an exciting next stage in our mission to help businesses innovate payments acceptance and give consumers the choice to pay the way they want to”.

"TripleA is thrilled to partner with Pomelo Pay to allow businesses to accept cryptocurrency payments," said Eric Barbier, CEO of TripleA. "With our partnership, businesses get to tap into the spending power of more than 300 million crypto owners globally, without bearing any price volatility risk." 

"At Soneva, we have always endeavoured to be a pioneer in the hospitality industry, hence accepting cryptocurrencies as a payment method is another example of enabling our international guests to make payments from anywhere in the world easily," says Bruce Bromley, Chief Financial Officer, and Deputy CEO of Soneva.
