that it is expanding its payments platform internationally to 30 countries, including the the UK, EU, Australia, and Canada.
“Online entrepreneurship is one of the most powerful forces for growth in today’s global economy. Braintree disrupted the payments industry in the U.S. by making payments easy for developers to integrate in minutes rather than months. We’re now disrupting the global payments industry by providing international start-ups with the same technology available to the best U.S. and multi-national e-commerce merchants,” said Bill Ready, CEO of Braintree. “We’re answering the call of our customers and thousands of start-ups around the world for a truly global online and mobile payments solution. We will help e-commerce businesses and startups around the world launch, support, and scale successful businesses while giving our existing U.S. customers new ways to expand overseas.”
Braintree claims it currently processes more than $4B in card transactions each year, including nearly $1B in mobile payments.
