Company Profile

Company history

    • November 2005

      The start

      Micropayment is founded as one of the first payment service providers worldwide: In the still young medium of the Internet, online sales of services, goods and commodities increase. With Micropayment, Andreas Richter and Kai Thiemann develop technologies and processes to standardize payment transactions and make them secure and transparent.

    • March 2006

      Payment method Call2Pay

      The first own payment method of Micropayment. Call2Pay was developed especially for paid internet content, such as e-books, music, newspaper articles, test reports and online games. In 2006, approximatly 96% of all German households had a fixed line connection. So what could be more obvious than enabling payment by telephone on the World Wide Web? The purchase price is charged to the telephone bill. Despite the fact that the number of landline connections is declining, this method of payment is still used today.

      Payment method HandyPay

      Shortly after Call2Pay, a separate payment option was also developed for the rapidly growing mobile phone market. Payment independent of time and place: 1st generation mobile payment! Smartphones with their diverse application possibilities were still dreams of the future. In 2006, SMS were the perfect basis for mobile payment on the Internet.

      Online payment with security: TÜV Rheinland seal

      The TÜV Rheinland AG as an internationally recognised and independent testing service provider awards Micropayment as the first Internet billing service provider in Germany two quality seals "TÜV-tested customer satisfaction" and "TÜV-tested Internet billing". With this, the TÜV confirms the professionalism of our solutions and gives dealers and customers security on the Internet. To this day, Micropayment focuses on maximum user-friendliness and transparency for all solutions.

    • March 2007

      Payment method Credit Card

      Once again, Micropayment proves the right intuition: in 2007, the credit card was still considered an exclusive and elitist means of payment used by a small circle of customers with high incomes. In order to be able to address these high-spending target groups, Micropayment developed solutions to enable payment by credit card on the Internet. Since 2007 the number of credit cards in Germany has doubled and it is one of the most popular payment methods on the internet.

      Payment method eBank2Pay

      One year after the introduction of the first payment method by Micropayment, the Berlin-based company is now presenting the fourth payment method in its portfolio. At that time still called "eBank2Pay", this product is now a common and familiar method for a successful purchase for many buyers and merchants as "Sofortüberweisung".

      Payment method Direct Debit (Electronic Direct Debit)

      Just as rapidly as the Internet and online trade are developing, Micropayment is also expanding its portfolio. With increasing turnover and a growing number of retailers and service providers in the virtual world, the demands of the customers are rising. We take this into account by constantly developing new payment methods: Electronic Direct Debit, which has been successful since the 1980s, is also being made available to online trade at Micropayment.

      Micropayment responds to the growing demands of online customers and merchants and the increasing competition on the Internet with a new graphical user interface in the payment windows of all payment methods. Many new technical details are integrated, which of course contribute to putting user-friendliness at the centre of the solution.

    • October 2008

      Micropayment works PSD2 compliant

      Micropayment receives confirmation that all processes comply with the Payment Services Directive (PSD2), which has been in force since January 2018. PSD2 defines how payments within the European Economic Area must be processed. Banks and financial institutions in particular have faced major challenges in implementing the requirements, especially as they have to allow third party payment service providers access to their banking systems.

    Since 2005 Micropayment as a payment service provider, is a stable partner for companies and organisations, who require payment solutions on the internet. Today we are an inherent part in an etablished industry, but 15 years ago the concept of a payment service provider was only known to experts.

    We ourselves back then described our business misson with "added value solution and billing on the internet". This is still appropriate today. The extensive changes on the payment market as well as the rapidly changing user behavior are demanding Micropayment to question and reinvent ourselves every day.

    Solid, safe technical tools and a range of payment methods are not alone at the forefront. We distinguish us from others by our customer friendly service for our retailer and fundraiser together with personal advice where we deal with individual challenges.

    Facts and figures

    Of course we could publish any number of figures here. But how do they help you? Therefore only three important facts for you:

    • 65 currencies title=
      65 currencies

      There are about 160 different currencies in the world. In 2020, Micropayment will be settling over 65 of these currencies. Did you know: Mauritania and Madagascar are the only two countries in the world that have currencies without sub-units. The IT of Micropayment is able to process such payments.

    • 9 payment methods title=
      9 payment methods

      Some payment service providers advertise over 250 possible payment methods for integration with the merchant. Micropayment is limited to the nine main payment methods that customers want. This means that over 99% of all transactions can be mapped. Niche payment methods would only drive up our prices due to high development and maintenance costs.

    • 15.000 dealers worldwide title=
      15.000 dealers worldwide
