By Edlyn Cardoza
Aurora Payments, LLC recently announced the acquisition of One Payment, a Florida-based FinTech payment company. Co-founded by Luis Requejo and Jorge Calzadilla, One Payment boasts over 6,000 merchants in its portfolio, with particular emphasis on minority-owned small and medium-sized businesses.
With over $1 billion of volume processed annually, One Payment adds immediate scale to the Aurora platform through its acquisition. With One Payment’s East Coast presence and extraordinary success selling into a traditionally difficult-to-penetrate market, the transaction will diversify Aurora’s distribution channels, expanding its go-to-market capabilities.
“The incredible year-over-year growth that One Payment has enjoyed has our team ecstatic about this acquisition,” said Aurora Payments’ CEO Brian Goudie. “One Payment adds significant value to Aurora with its roots on the East coast and accelerates our diversified go-to-market strategy.”
Founded in 2009, One Payment specialises in payment technology and processing for quick service restaurants, retailers, and service industries. With its acquisition, they will be able to expand its distribution by leveraging Aurora’s full-service payment ecosystem and proprietary technology.
“Over the past 14 years working in the payments space, I have met few transformative people like Brian Goudie who can shape the outlook of an organization and be a positive influence for good. Since 2016, Brian has been instrumental in our success, and he is the visionary we want to help propel One Payment through the next stage of our company’s growth. One Payment is proud to “Rise with Aurora” as we pave a new path for our business, our employees, and our merchants,” said Luis Requejo, co-founder of One Payment.
Aurora Payments is a payment technology company headquartered in Tempe, AZ, and Las Vegas, NV specialising in integrated solutions for small to medium-sized businesses. With the acquisition of One Payment, Aurora has over 27,000 merchants in its portfolio, processing $12 billion in annual volume.
