Helping your business thrive in the digital economy
Global payments are complex and ever-evolving. So we’ve built the technology and expertise to help you succeed - one transaction at a time.
Powering payments in a digital world
When Checkout.com launched as a cloud-based payments platform in 2012, even our founder Guillaume Pousaz could not foresee the speed of global digitization. From the ecommerce boom and our growing obsession with digital experiences, through the rise of web3 and cryptocurrency to the dawn of the metaverse, the transformation is real – and the pace of change is only accelerating. All that change can create blockers to success; we’re here to help you break through.
Our mission is all about you
Checkout.com’s mission is to enable businesses and their communities to thrive in the digital economy. This mission inspires us to deliver innovative solutions that flex to your needs, valuable insights that help you get smart about your payments' performance, and expertise you can count on as you navigate the complexities of an ever-shifting world.
We are partners, not providers to our clients. In the last decade, we’ve grown to over 1700 employees in 19 global offices, each one of us passionate about helping thousands of businesses worldwide grow through our next-generation payments platform.
We believe in doing well by doing good
We’re fully focused on building for the future in the right way and in being a force for positive change. That’s reflected in our dedication to continual progress, on going the extra mile in pursuit of excellence for our clients and for their communities. We value collaboration as we know we can achieve more together. Our values and our operating principles guide us along the way.
