FinTech PayMe wants to take advantage of the EU’s ‘gold rush’


Israel’s FinTech PayMe plans to expand into the European market, capitalizing on a regulatory change that has led to a “gold rush”.

As the Jerusalem Post reported on Wednesday, December 29, the company hopes to offer its services to platforms, organizations and markets focused on small businesses in Europe, allowing them to integrate services such as credit clearing, financing and marketing. protection against fraud in their products.

“Until recently, there was no way to calculate the risk in the European market,” said the co-founder of PayMe Adam kogan.

But things have changed with the regulatory reforms, Kogan added: “The whole European market has become more popular; it’s a gold rush right now.

However, PayMe, which provides financial services to more than 70,000 companies worldwide, says it has goals beyond Europe.

The company recently launched a collaboration with payment processor Stripe, allowing customers working with PayMe to get a financial solution that works in all territories and with all payment methods supported by Stripe.

“The FinTech industry in Israel has grown tremendously in recent years and includes incredible companies that are expanding into the global marketplace,” Gur Byron, Stripe’s Israel Operations Director, told the Jerusalem Post. “PayMe has definitely stood out as a FinTech company with a strong value proposition for markets, platforms and start-ups, as evidenced by the company’s rapid growth and volume of payments. “

“It is very difficult to create your own financial services,” Kogan said. “Everyone wants to be a one-stop-shop, and we’re helping them achieve that in the financial space. “
