MONTREAL, AUGUST 2, 2022 – Nuvei Corporation (“Nuvei” or the “Company”) (Nasdaq: NVEI) (TSX: NVEI), tomorrow’s payment platform, announces today that it has partnered with Selina, the fast-growing experiential hospitality brand targeting the remote worker and digital nomad.
Nuvei is Selina’s payments provider offering local card acquiring services in Europe and Israel, and soon also in multiple territories including the US, Latin America and Australia. The addition of alternative payment methods is also on the roadmap for delivery in 2022.
Selina’s lifestyle brand was developed specifically for Millennial and Gen Z travelers, who spend approximately $350 billion per year on travel, according to Selina estimates.
“We are seeking to redefine the future of accommodation by creating a brand and curating experiences that strongly resonate with our customers,” said Selina’s Global Chief Marketing Officer, Elad Nir.
“Millennials and Gen Z travelers are looking for authenticity and top-tier experiences at every step – and this extends to the way they pay. We are confident that by partnering with Nuvei, we’ll be able to offer the frictionless next-gen payment experiences our target market desires, no matter their location,” Nir added.
Commenting on the payments collaboration, Nuvei Chair and CEO Phil Fayer said: “We’re experiencing first-hand how the Millennial and Gen Z population are redefining what good looks like when it comes to payments across a variety of key verticals. We’re thrilled to work with Selina to bring the future of payments to their tech savvy customers, today.”
Selina has steadily grown its geographic reach by leveraging proprietary technology to identify underperforming hotels and transform them into cultural hubs through partnerships with local artisans, designers, and food and beverage providers. Selina properties offer a global home for the remote worker and digital nomad, providing a comprehensive experience that is expected to continue driving demand for Selina’s offerings.
Nir added: “We expect to continue to benefit from the surge in remote working and the prioritization of health, wellness, and an experiential lifestyle among Millennial and Gen Z travelers, which means growth is firmly on the agenda. To achieve our plans, we need a payment partner to help power our growth and we have full confidence that Nuvei is the partner for us.”
