Tuesday 9 July 2013 13:47 CET | News

UK-based mobile point of sale start-up SumUp has unveiled global financial services group BBVA as a new investor. BBVA has undertaken this investment within the scope of its strategic initiative BBVA Ventures.

Part of the funding will be used to support SumUp’s planned expansion into South America. SumUp is also present in Spain and Portugal, two of BBVA’s main markets, and the investment will also enable the company to further increase its activity in these regions.

Furthermore, SumUp will use the Series B investment to further build out its end-to-end payment solution, which encompasses a payments gateway as well as proprietary terminal hardware and operations systems.

In recent news, SumUp has launched an iPad POS package to enable small businesses to set up a cash register to accept card payments.
