Stockholm, December 5, 2017 - Trustly, the European payments company, is pleased to announce that it has been nominated for the highly distinguished DI Gasell award for the third consecutive year.

“It is a great honour for the whole team at Trustly to be awarded the DI Gasell nomination for the third time in a row. In 2017 we reached the milestone of surpassing 10 billion EUR in payment volume – a true testament to the work done by the team.

  • A turnover surpassing 10M SEK

  • At least doubled its turnover, when comparing the first and the past fiscal year
  • Increased its turnover each year for the past three years
  • A positive operating profit during the past four fiscal years

  • Launched Trustly Direct Debit, a new payment product for recurring purchases including subscriptions services and one-click payments
  • Recent customers include travel sector partners UATP and Flywire, leading e-commerce company Boozt, Nordic e-commerce focused payments provider Qliro as well as software provider Emric (part of Tieto) and P2P lending platform Lendify.
