AstroPay, the global leader in online payment solutions, has launched its digital payment service to the European market, following a period of significant growth for the business, seeing its users and merchants increase exponentially.

AstroPay will initially offer its service to customers in the UK, Spain, and Portugal, following feedback from clients interested in reaching users based in these countries.

Founded in 2009, AstroPay successfully provides payment solutions to customers across Asia, Africa and Latin America. The launch of its offering in Europe is part of its ambitious global expansion plans, which have been informed directly by customer feedback.

Mikael Lijtenstein, CEO of AstroPay, said: “Over two million users are already benefiting from AstroPay, along with 500 merchants, and via more than 200 payment methods globally. Our decision to launch in Europe is a reflection of the strength of the business, and we are thrilled to be expanding our pioneering digital payment solution to customers in Europe – starting in the UK, Spain and Portugal – which forms the next stage of our wider global expansion plans.”

As part of its continued focus to further improve the customer experience, especially as more European merchants shift to online deposits, AstroPay has dedicated teams working across the UK, Spain and Portugal to ensure it maintains a strong understanding of customers’ needs in those regions.

Lijtenstein concluded: “AstroPay has continued to grow from strength to strength, despite the disruption caused by the pandemic, and as the business ventures into Europe, we remain focussed on providing the best possible digital payment service to all our new and existing customers around the world.”

AstroPay has offices in the UK and Latin America, and over two million users, 500 merchants, and more than 200 payment methods available globally. It has extensive experience handling the specificities of different markets, offering an efficient solution to all its customers: merchants, end-users, and business partners.
