Boosting capabilities and customer experience for Clearshift

Clearshift was born in the wake of the 2008 financial crisis and the resulting disillusionment over a lack of transparency in financial markets.

It was founded on a two-fold belief that firstly, hiding fees in flexible market spreads is a business model that is outdated and unfair. And secondly, that customers should always know exactly how much they will be charged for a financial transaction. Clearshift offers simplified B2B foreign currency payments that are quick and painless to process with a clearly disclosed and set low true cost.

Since launching in 2012, Clearshift has worked with SMEs, non-profits and asset managers, facilitating thousands of safe and simple foreign currency transactions valued at over US$1.5 billion.


Clearshift is an ambitious company, with ambitious customers, so needed a payments provider with liquidity and conversions in a number of different countries and territories to support clients’ growth.

With many clients making payments online in EUR for their customers, there was a real need for better rates and capabilities within the Eurozone as we were unable to receive domestic EUR payments. Without a local clearing account to collect funds in the European Union, this was a challenge. Further, there was also a desire from our partners to simplify their payments from within the US market.
