About Us

iZettle is on a mission to democratise commerce. Founded in Stockholm, we revolutionised mobile payments in 2011 with the world’s first mini chip card reader and software for mobile devices. Today, we’re a one-stop shop for commerce, serving small businesses across the globe. We offer simple and powerful tools to take payments, to register and track sales, and to get funding. We’re a new kind of ally for small business owners - helping them to start, run and grow their business quickly and easily.


We are thrilled to see that our service helps users grow their businesses every year by more than three times the European average. Whether we’re providing your business with capital, lowering your costs or building smart new tools that help you stay in touch with customers, it all comes down to helping you work smarter, earn more and thrive.
