SumUp, the company that enables merchants to take debit and credit payments with their smartphones, has today launched in France, Belgium and Portugal.
Businesses in these countries will now be able to sign up to the service through the SumUp app (available on both iOS and Android) or via the SumUp website, and receive native language assistance from the SumUp support team.
SumUp launched in the UK, Ireland, Germany, and Austria, in August this year, and expanded to Italy, Spain, and the Netherlands in November. Today's launches mean that SumUp's technology is available to businesses in ten distinct European markets - more than any other mobile point-of-sale technology provider. Crucially, SumUp is capable of processing MasterCard and VISA payments in all of the countries it operates in.
Daniel Klein, CEO of SumUp, commented: "Our technology is both incredibly flexible and incredibly portable. However, extending the secure and reliable payments infrastructure we have developed into new markets is not at all easy - although it is certainly just as crucial. I am delighted that we are already at a stage where we can offer merchants in France, Belgium, and Portugal the convenience of our technology and the peace-of-mind that comes with processing credit and debit card payments over our carefully secured network. We have now brought pay-as-you-go card payments to the ten central European economies - and will continue to innovate to ensure that we maintain our position as the mobile point-of-sale company with the largest international footprint."
In addition to moving into new European markets, SumUp has expanded its userbase by making high profile deals with companies like Taxi.de since it launched four months ago.
