Because the problem for receiving payments on time will be gone forever with Swipe. The process should be easy and it is with Swipe.

What type of people (market segment) are you trying to attract to your product?

Small and medium enterprises and startup companies. Our focus is to help companies that don’t have the technical capacity to safely organise their payments and invoicing.

Tell us about your team?

We believe that we have become a family over the time working in Swipe. Our team consists of young people in their 20s, full of energy and motivation. This, we believe, is the main factor why we receive such a good feedback on our customer service and, of course, the product performance.

What are your long term plans for your product / company?

To become global. At the moment we are actively working with EU merchants, but our vision is to create a multi functional payment service available all over the world.

We like working with Apple tech, as we love the way they view and implement tools to create the most out of user experience. Clean, easy and intuitive – just the way we like it.

What tech gadgets do you wish you could use to help you?

Gadgets are not that important in our industry. The most important is the technological solution behind the software itself. Therefore we wish to (and definitely will) work with blockchain to improve Swipe.
