According to the firm now more than five million consumer accounts that can be used at over 700,000 websites.

Paidy increases revenue for merchants by reducing the number of incomplete transactions, increasing conversion rates, boosting average order values, and facilitating repeat purchases from consumers. Paidy continues to reinvent to make shopping easier and more fun both online and offline.
