Payments that scale globally

Digitalisation is accelerating worldwide and payments technology is becoming a global industry where scale is key. Payments are becoming easier and faster regardless of whether they are made by card, mobile, or even initiated via biometric identification methods such as fingerprint readers and facial recognition, as per the press release.

Nexi Digital Finland creates a strong innovation platform to the benefit of its customers across Europe. The company will double the number of its application developers in Finland and offer them the opportunity to drive the payment technology forward.

Payment solutions company Nets is part of the Nexi Group.

Nets Group and Nexi Group merged in 2021 to form Europe's leading PayTech. Nets Group had already expanded into Finland in 2012 with the acquisition of Luottokunta.
