iZettle, the social payments company, creates services for person-to-person and business-to-consumer commerce. The first service includes an app and a mini chip-card reader that lets anyone take secure card payments anytime, anywhere.
Founded in 2010 by serial entrepreneurs Jacob de Geer and Magnus Nilsson and later funded by Index Ventures, Greylock Partners, Creandum, Northzone, MasterCard, American Express and SEB Private Equity, iZettle is headquartered in Stockholm, Sweden.
The iZettle service was first launched in Sweden in the summer of 2011 and is now available to individuals and small businesses across Sweden, Norway, Denmark, Finland, The United Kingdom, Germany and Spain. Over the coming months, iZettle will bring secure and easy payments to more people, continuing the mission to empower entrepreneurs and democratise card payments in more countries around Europe and the world.
