Payment Processing Fintech Paystrax to Double Headcount in Lithuania

by May 20, 2022

Paystrax, a payment processing solutions provider, is planning to expand its team in Lithuania. With offices in Vilnius, Klaipėda, Reykjavik in Iceland, and Brighton in the UK, the company is looking to double its current 30-strong team in Lithuania over the next 12 months.

“We have assembled a group of professionals with excellent knowledge of the environment that payment companies like Paystrax operate in. Our team has made a great start, and Paystrax is now ready to grow further,”

says the company’s co-founder and CEO Johannes Kolbeinsson.

Having developed successful Fintech ventures in Iceland, Paystrax co-founders chose Lithuania to establish an innovative company that provides state-of-the-art payment processing solutions for European merchants. Lithuania’s well-developed Fintech infrastructure is what made the country a good fit for Paystrax headquarters.

“In Lithuania, we found a fast set up process for Fintech businesses, a variety of universities preparing talent for the IT, Finance, and Management fields, as well as a convenient geographic location and great physical infrastructure,”

Mr. Kolbeinsson explains.

“The local payments ecosystem, the talent pool and, of course, the legal basis for Fintech businesses in Lithuania make it a great base for international growth.”

Paystrax provides Visa and Mastercard acquiring services for POS terminals, online, mobile and other electronic payment systems, creating customised solutions and add-ons tailored to the specific needs of users. Most of the company’s clients come from the United Kingdom, Hungary, Denmark, Lithuania and Germany, but the fast-growing Fintech is ready to onboard customers from other European countries as well.

Currently, Paystrax is developing an innovative payment technology that will speed up the onboarding of new business accounts. Usually, the verification processes for legacy acquirers can take 3 to 6 weeks, which can be fatal for some businesses. A solution that PAYSTRAX has rolled out in Hungary allows users to be fully registered within a day and go live with their POS terminals within 3 days. A shortened account verification procedure should be active in the UK by the end of this year, and later expanded to other markets.

To support its fast-paced growth, PAYSTRAX established its second office in Klaipėda, Lithuania’s port city, earlier this year. The company is currently looking for specialists with a background in payments, sales, compliance, customer service and IT to join its Vilnius and Klaipėda teams.
