Press release   •   Feb 25, 2014 08:43 UTC

Swedish online payments company Trustly Group has won Spain’s CIT Golden Card award for innovative payment methods. The prize is awarded by Payments CIT, and this year’s award is the eleventh in its history.

“We’re very proud to have received this award,” says Carl-Henrik Somp, spokesperson at Trustly.

“The Spanish financial and payments sector appreciates the fact that Trustly has developed an entirely new payment method for online payments, and that we have taken a very strong position in the market, attracting hundreds of e-commerce clients in less than two years. We’re delighted to have contributed to the rapid growth of e-commerce in Spain.”

CIT Golden Card is one of the most prestigious prizes in the Spanish financial and payments segment. Spanish e-commerce companies have faced challenges in identifying secure payment methods that are easy to use.

“The fast adoption by both e-commerce companies and their users demonstrates that Trustly is helping to bring change to this segment. Since PayPal in 2005, no other payments company has established itself as rapidly on the Spanish market as Trustly,” adds Somp.
