We believe in the everyday hero

Our mission is to empower small merchants across the globe

The heroes we serve

We believe that every business should have access to affordable, easy-to-use payment solutions, no matter their size. Back in 2012, SumUp was founded by a small team with one goal in mind – to create a world where small business owners can be successful doing what they love. Today, over 4 million businesses rely on SumUp to get paid.

How we can help

We give access to financial services to the millions of businesses that are considered too small for most providers. They’re as much as 10 times smaller than the smallest businesses that would be targeted by banks and traditional providers. What started out as one card reader has now turned into a range of readers, multiple remote payment solutions such as Invoices, Gift Cards, Payment Links and so much more.

We're there for you


Whether you’re a street food vendor, a salon owner or a sales assistant we want to make technology that anyone can use and everyone has access to. Whether you’re a one-person show or a team, we’re there for the smallest of businesses. 


From our paperless onboarding to taking the first payment, we want to make things simple. That means no contracts, no hidden fees, no bureaucracy and no surprises.
