Veem announces initial API partners

B2B payment platform Veem today announced the first group of partners who have integrated its global payment capabilities into their offerings.

“We knew our API would be useful for companies of all kinds in need of global payment capabilities but even we were surprised to see the variety of companies that found Veem and started to build using our API.” said Cheung Tam, vice president of API product at Veem. “We’re just a couple of months post-launch and the success we’ve seen has been inspiring.”

The companies are:

Cargocentric (logistics services)

“We were using Veem even before the API was available,” director of operations Jason Ting said. “Our software facilitates and brings transparency to international logistics.  This includes calculating and advancing fees such as freight, duties and taxes. Veem has allowed our customers a way to easily and quickly pay these fees.

“Once we fully integrate with Veem’s API, it will make the payment process even easier. ”

EliteWork (virtual staffing services)

“Veem has significantly simplified our monthly payments process, and we have only integrated it into a portion of our payments system so far,” managing partner Maria Delos Reyes said. “We look forward to fully integrating Veem into the EliteWork platform so that we can offer direct access to a cheaper and faster alternative to PayPal for all our virtual workers.”

HireAthena (automated accounting and human resources)

“We are ramping up our international payment processing and found that our domestic solution wasn’t working on a global level,” head of product Tina Wang said. “It took too long for payments to arrive so we ended up processing and tracking most international payments manually. This just wasn’t something we could scale so we were excited to find Veem and integrate with their API so that international payments are easy, instant and aligned with our best practices.”

SpringboardVR (virtual reality entertainment services)

“We were about to launch our VR commercial licensing platform and needed an easy way to pay our content partners,” CTO Matthew Hall said. “We started working with another payments vendor but it became incredibly challenging to get it up and running. Veem met our key requirements by having a broad list of countries supported and being easy to use for both our team and our content partners.”

The API became available in November 2017 and enables companies to send payments directly from their software. In coming months, Veem will be adding additional capabilities including the option to request a payment and receive a payment.

With developers in mind, Veem will be hosting meetups in San Francisco and Ottawa. The events will be open to any developer interested in learning more about Veem and starting to build with the payment API. To learn more or sign up for notifications, click here.
