Payment can be complicated – but it doesn’t have to be. We believe that merchants have better things to do than thinking about payment. That’s why we have built a platform to accept, process, and settle payments – connecting all channels, devices, and markets. We bring together all payment data to enable our merchants to make better decisions in less time. And we help them to better understand their customers’ buying behaviour and offer a seamless shopping experience – no matter where, when, or how their customers prefer to pay.
We aim to empower business owners to delight their customers with easy and seamless commerce, no matter where they shop or how they pay.
Unzer is a brand that was formed from a merger of 13 companies, each with their own expertise, experience, and story. This makes Unzer unique – because with our broad product portfolio we cover the entire payment flow. At the same time, it makes it difficult to tell Unzer’s success story in a few sentences. It all starts in 2019, when KKR becomes a majority shareholder, opening a new chapter in the company’s history. The new brand follows in 2020. Today, employees from 60 nations are working together towards one goal: to provide companies of all sizes with integrated payment solutions and help shape a digital society.
Unzer invests in its compliance and governance processes and expands its management team. Martin Blessing is appointed Chairman of Unzer's newly formed advisory board. With the new mobile device POS Go and the new platform Unzer One, the company advances unified commerce solutions.
Unzer grows together. A new management team drives Unzer’s realignment and professionalises structures and processes. With the acquisition of Clearhaus, Unzer becomes an acquiring bank.
The new Unzer brand is launched. Further companies are acquired to complete the portfolio.
Investor KKR joins as majority shareholder and begins to merge the individual company acquisitions.
