The next generation payments processing solution

We’ve re-imagined processing payments to accept global payments across traditional and blockchain rails in one powerful integration. Open up new markets and drive down costs to your business with payments infrastructure powered by USDC.

Broad payment 
method acceptance

Let international* customers pay with their preferred payment method from traditional rails like cards and bank transfers, to blockchain rails that span the internet in one unified API. All transactions settle in USDC directly into your Circle Account — where you can convert to a connected bank account or leverage the power of on-chain digital dollars.

Step two

We process the payment on your behalf. Upon settlement, USDC is issued and delivered to your Circle Account, or credits issued to your end user’s wallets.


Step three

You can pay others on-chain, earn yield on settled balances or convert to your bank account at any time.
