An incredible milestone for Payoneer they are on the path to becoming a publicly traded company.

(Nasdaq: FTOC) at a combined valuation of $3.3 billion. You can read more details in the press release.
It’s been a long path on thejourney from when Payoneer started 15 years ago. Early on, they recognized that the internet was changing the way the world operated, making it possible for anyone, anywhere to build and grow a digital business. Whether it was a large digital marketplace with billions of dollars in annual sales, or an entrepreneur who has never sold anything ever before, the newly connected economy democratized opportunity for both developed and emerging markets alike. Payoneer knew these businesses needed a new financial partner to support their growth, and help them navigate the increasingly complex, evolving world of digital commerce. Payoneer made it their mission to use technology to deliver sophisticated global digital financial services to businesses of all sizes and making it possible to connect once to Payoneer and to access the whole world.
Over the past 15 years, Payoneer have built an ecosystem that connects marketplaces, sellers, gig workers, merchants, manufacturers, banks, suppliers, buyers and more onto a single global platform. They have built a secure, regulated platform that offers a global, multi-currency account to businesses of any size from almost country, providing an expansive global payment infrastructure to pay and get paid globally as easily as locally.
Today marks the start of a new chapter for Payoneer.
