The founders have combined experience of 50 years in billing, e-invoices and e-services (customer care and self-service), including projects like ”world’s first consumer e-invoice” and ”world’s first payment plan as self-service”, both generating huge cost savings / income (millions of euros yearly) for Telia. PayUp is based on these two innovations, but providing biller and bank independence for enhanced user experience.
As PayUp has been up and running in Finland for some time now, and new SRTP scheme is standardizing B2C e-invoicing in Europe, it is time to expand into other countries.
We don’t intend to change the world alone but by partnering with existing players in Europe. With our flexible partnering model, the co-operation partner benefits by getting more customers and income, and they can offer better service for their customers.
B2C e-invoicing in Europe is about to change due to SRTP (SEPA Request-to-Pay) scheme. Before there has been no international standard for delivering payments and e-invoices, but SRTP will remedy that by being a standard messaging layer for whole Single Euro Payment Area. As it works similarly to Visa and Mastercard networks, senders and receivers don’t need any contracts between them, making utilization easier.
