Gropay were involved with King in looking after payments for us from the early days of the company. They helped establish our payment relationships at a time when we were still a start up and managed and developed these as we grew. They got us out of some tricky situations on a number of occasions with their knowledge of the payment ecosystem and their network. They worked efficiently with our internal teams in driving value out of payments both from a cost and growth perspective. I would have no hesitation in recommending most highly Gropay.

Gropay gave us expert guidance in finding a payment provider, overcoming a challenging set of constraints to find us a solution that met our needs. They are extremely skilled at highlighting the salient points involved in a decision and making sound recommendations when required. They understood our needs as a startup, were persistent when it came to overcoming problems, and were very personable and fun to work with.

I’ve known Gropay since my days at Sofort. Since then we have corroborated as business partners with most recently Gropay representing a client of Trustly. I’ve found them to be extremely professional, knowledgable, problem solvers and diligent in representing the interests of their clients. If you operate in payments then Gropay are a great consulting and interim resource and I have no hesitation in recommending them.

HR Performance Management
Gropay created, implemented and tracked a performance management system for a fast growing international PSP. The PSP had staff located over a number of international locations. This required the implementation of local human resource laws, policies and procedures while integrating into an overall corporate model. We defined core competencies for the organization, created generic role profiles and documented HR processes and policies. Gropay delivered consulting and advise on operational and strategic HR issues. We ensured that the implemented approach supported the longer term strategic direction of the organization.
Merchant Payment Management
We have created and implemented a payments strategy for several large private and publicly listed merchants. For many of these merchants we have helped to implement this strategy taking the merchant through all growth phases from start up to successful IPO. Our services in these projects have included: payment partner selection, contract and pricing negotiation, geographic expansion, compliance, accounting and reconciliation, payment user interface management and product management. We continue to support many of these merchants through our interim management services.
For several large private and publicly listed merchants we have created and run formal RFP processes for the selection of payment service suppliers.
Advisors To The Board
For several large merchants we have served across the years as an ad-hoc on demand advisory on payment related matters to the Board and Executive Management. Our advise and consulting has ranged from payment partner selection, PCI compliance, tax compliance, new product and business development.
For several startup merchants we have implemented end to end payment functionality. This has included operational and technical architecture in the merchant product, payment partner selection, negotiation and integration, payment user interface management, accounting and reconciliation.
Venture Capital Support
For several large global VC and private equity firms we have advised on valuation and due diligence for investments into the payment eco system. Transactions from the VCs have been in the several billion dollar range.
Gropay provided legal advisory services to the largest publicly listed Scandinavian technology service provider to e-commerce firms. In this project we reviewed all payment supplier contracts and advised both from a legal and commercial perspective. Key areas of focus were data protection, privacy regulation, contractual indemnification and liability.
Sales And Marketing
We advised and supported our client’s marketing and sales strategy and execution for several leading PSPs. This included strategies to improve sales channel performance to increase revenues. Gropay advised on optimizing overall channel structures and ways to ensure coherent customer experiences across multiple verticals in the payments B2B market. We supported clients in developing go-to-market approaches for brand positioning, content, media, social media, and digital marketing. We offered advice on branding and media approaches, but also recommended ways to optimize the spend on marketing to maximize ROI.
Gropay worked with a number of payment supplier clients to help differentiate their product portfolios. We outlined which new services and solution would generate long term revenues and margins. Gropay also implemented improvements to the core business and growth in adjacent services. We looked to increase revenues and profits from new services, as well as to manage product lifecycle and innovation processes. Gropay built on deep insights along the value chain to support changing customer needs, helping our clients differentiate their products and services.
For an international Payment Service Provider (PSP) and Visa MasterCard principal member acquirer, Gropay set up a complete office in the centre of Amsterdam to support the company’s global growth. Gropay’s services included finding a suitable office location for the client, managing all logistics related to the lease of the office and in furnishing it appropriately to the client’s brand. Gropay subsequently recruited on behalf of the client all the staff for the office including Sales, Product Management and Marketing staff. Gropay managed the day to day HR and operational management of these staff.
