Checkout.com today announced the launch of their Barcelona office to serve as a headquarters for operations across Southern European markets, including Spain, Portugal, Italy and Greece. Checkout.com has a team of more than 1,100 people globally and 20 employees across its Porto and Barcelona offices and expects to double over the next 12 months in the Southern European region.

Antoine Nougué, Head of Europe at Checkout.com, said, “Think global, act local’ is at the heart of our expansion proposition for global enterprises. Our local team across Southern Europe has deep insight and knowledge for those merchants wanting to expand and grow. We’ve witnessed explosive growth across the region, with more merchants investing in their eCommAerce strategies to serve an emerging online market segment.”

Nougué continued, “The localisation of our proposition to the market removes payments as a barrier to scale for fast-growing online businesses, allowing them to unlock more revenue opportunities and serve customers a frictionless checkout experience.”

Recently, Checkout.com was selected by British Home and Living Brand, The Cotswold Company as its new online payment service provider. The integration to Checkout.com will give Cotswold Co.’s customers a range of payment methods. Customers can pay with Google Pay and Apple Pay new payment methods unlocked by Checkout.com, thus offering customers flexibility and convenience, while unlocking additional revenue opportunities for the business.

Florian Jensen, Global Fraud and Payments Director at Glovo, said, “As one of the world’s leading multi-category delivery players, with millions of users across 20 markets worldwide, a localised proposition is imperative to our success. Checkout.com’s global payments routing platform has enabled us to optimise our card processing in existing markets and expand into new territories with speed and ease. Their growth mindset and agile platform make them the perfect payments partner for a global scaling company like Glovo.”
