Zimpler upgraded to Payment Institution
Swedish Fintech Company Zimpler, a dedicated mobile payment service provider, today announced an upgrade to their existing payment license. The Swedish FCA, Finansinspektionen, have granted Zimpler a license as Payment Institution. This enables Zimpler to establish physical presence and offer cross boarder payment services within the European Economic Area (EEA & EU).
“This license enables us to proceed with our expansions plans within the EU. We will also be able to add support for withdrawals with the new license. It is also a testament to the quality of our company where we now join the ranks of the few selected companies in Sweden that has this license.” says Kristofer Ekman Sinclair, CEO and Co-founder of Zimpler.
Zimpler launched its new mobile payment service last year with the main purpose of simplifying mobile payments, while giving users control over their total spending. The combined tool for payments and control makes the service unique to the market.
Following the launch, Zimpler has received great response from the market. Today the service is used by more than 200 sites globally.
Zimpler is a swedish fintech company. We were founded in Stockholm and Gothenburg 2012. The goal has always been to simplify mobile payments and to be a really nice company. Zimpler's main product is a modern, mobile wallet that gives the user control over their spending. We do this with spending limits, nudging and behavioural science methods.
Zimpler have offices in Stockholm, Gothenburg, Berlin and Haparanda and have around 40 employees. You can use the wallet in Sweden and Finland at the moment, but there are plans for entering more european markets. Today we have more than 112 000 users who can make and get control over their payments.
