In recent years, the scale-up expanded quickly in terms of products, channels, and markets. As a result of the global COVID measures, no one can ignore the relevance of the proposition and the company’s growth is accelerating even further. They currently operate in over 150 markets around the world and processing millions of online transactions. The recent capital injection of €22 million by tech investor Prime Ventures enables the company to accelerate its global growth even more. As a result, they are hiring two additional Expansion Managers, focusing on the US and the EU.
