Prize Payments brings a streamlined, efficient and economical solution to esports prize payment process and reduces time and costs for publishers and tournament organisers. Prize Payments is an ideal end-to-end solution for organising the payment process to navigate issues including multiple currencies, complex regulatory requirements, increasing costs and delayed payments to players.
Prize Payments reduces the time and money needed to complete the payment process and can handle 115 currencies across 180 countries whilst ensuring each payment is compliant with taxation and GDPR requirements in each country.
