CSI globalVCard, a leading B2B payments company specializing in safe, secure and rewarding payments, today announced that it has expanded services to China, its second salvo in as many months as part of the company’s worldwide expansion. CSI globalVCard also announced a partnership with Beijing-based E-Life Financial Holdings, a subsidiary of HNA Group. Together, CSI globalVCard and E-Life will offer Chinese companies electronic supplier payments at an affordable cost.

Clients choose CSI globalVCard for its automated, paperless payments platform, which allows multinational corporations to have the control and visibility in a single platform.

At the same time, E-Life Financial wishes to provide high-class service for domestic and foreign customers with the advantages of its full license qualifications, distribution channels, and strong clearing capabilities. As internationalization leads to ascending trends on cross-border payments, cooperation both domestically and internationally has become more and more important for E-Life Financial in offering customers a seamless experience and providing solutions for cross-border payments.”
