Maroo is revolutionizing the wedding and events industry, transforming the way couples cover their wedding expenses compared to the traditions of your grandparents' era. Maroo has been a crucial support for over 8,700 wedding and events professionals, assisting them in receiving payments. Since its launch in 2022, Maroo's vibrant community has processed more than $170 million in payments.

Previously Maroo faced a common challenge of ACH network that required up to seven days to transfer funds between clients and businesses. This delay is cross to our values of delivering simple and quick payments solutions to our clients who demand real-time payments and business efficiency. Additionally, here at Maroo had to allocate substantial amount of time and resources to address customer service and operational challenges arising from these processing time delays.

"We thoroughly assessed various service providers and ultimately selected Orum due to the excellence of their API, the dependability of their platform, their automated management of payments across major payment channels, and their invaluable guidance. The Orum team worked closely alongside us to ensure we had all the necessary resources."
Alex Nikityuk, Founder & CEO of Maroo

As a result, we are now able to deliver the following benefits to our clients such as:

  • Increased speed of ACH payments - most payments will be in your bank account in 3 business days
  • Reduced cost to businesses - while most providers charge uncapped 1.5%-2.5% for ACH fees, Maroo offers a much cost-efficient pricing
  • Access to Real-Time Payments feature where businesses are now able to choose how fast they'd like to receive or deliver payments
  • Additional transparency where the payment is in the process (submitted, authorized, processed)

We are excited to be partnering with Orum around new product launches coming in the next few months. To read more about our partnership with Orum click here
