Thunes acquires European payment methods platform Limonetik

thunesCross-border payments leader Thunes announced the acquisition of Limonetik, a European Payment Methods Platform. This move will complement existing Thunes Cross-Border Payments solutions by enabling businesses to get paid in 70 countries, using over 285 local payment methods such as mobile wallets, payment by instalments (BNPL), QR code payments and more. The solution will be known as Thunes Collections.

By joining the Thunes global payment and collection networks, businesses and their customers can send payments to – and get paid in – even the hardest-to-reach corners of the world. With a single, simple connection, the company offers transparent and affordable payments across the world and will now also enable more flexible ways to collect funds.

“Thunes is recognised for our far-reaching global network and brilliantly simple payments solution. We are excited to further strengthen our offering with a global collections capability made possible through the acquisition of Limonetik. We welcome the Limonetik team to Thunes, and as one, we look forward to offering a single end-to-end payment solution that connects every corner of the world and makes the global economy accessible to all.” commented Peter De Caluwe, CEO of Thunes.

“Limonetik has been driving the transformation of collections with its platform-as-a-service (PaaS) model, while Thunes possesses a powerful global payments network. We are incredibly excited to extend our combined payments and collections solutions across the world,” said Christophe Bourbier, founder of Limonetik.

Limonetik is one of the earliest developers of an alternative payment methods platform suitable for international merchants and marketplaces. And like Thunes, the firm closely partners with payment service providers and financial institutions. Processing more than EUR 2 billion a year, Limonetik is trusted by over 14,000 merchants, marketplaces and fintech players, including Deliveroo, Uber Eats, Veepee, CMA – CGM, Worldline – Ingenico, ACI, Amadeus and Natixis. Founded in Paris in 2008, Limonetik is led by CEO & co-founder Christophe Bourbier, a multiple-time entrepreneur and payment space expert. Today, Limonetik counts 50 employees who will become Thunesters.
