About Us

Our success started with a catastrophe

How we started

In 2008 a deadly cyclone hit Myanmar causing its worst natural disaster on record.

As the death toll grew, a Danish entrepreneur went online to donate money to help the thousands of orphaned children. When Jacob Tackmann Thomsen realized his credit card donation would lose 5% to fees and take days to arrive, he thought - there has to be a better way to send money abroad.

Spurred on by this frustration, Jacob set to work and founded Inpay with one clear vision - cross-border payments should be as cheap, safe, fast and easy as local bank transfers.

The journey had begun.

How we’ve grown

From small acorns great oaks grow.

And, the last 12 years have seen international offices open, skilled and passionate staff hired and profits grow.

In 2018 Inpay Holding acquired Eurogiro, a global payments community for postal operators, further strengthening our offering.

Where we’re going

Inpay’s mission is bold.

We don’t just want to make the flow of payments easier, cheaper and faster. We also want to see a fundamental change to how finance is accessed globally.

By 2030, Inpay and Eurogiro aim to financially include 100 million people. Our belief is that a financially inclusive world is a better world and we’ll do what it takes to get there.
