Roman Forum Rome Italy

Scalapay, a European Buy Now – Pay Later provider, has announced a $27 million investment from Poste Italiane, which is Italy’s largest service infrastructure network and claims to be one of the largest payment card issuers in Europe, in a Series B extension.

Scalapay is an innovative payment solution “for e-commerce merchants across the globe that allows customers to buy now and pay later, without interest.”

Their BNPL offerings include three options for customers (Pay in 3, Pay in 4, and Pay Later) in which customers are “not required to make any payments upfront, and can instead opt to pay in 3 installments, 4 installments, or entirely after 14 days.”

As noted in a release, they are making the purchasing experience “more delightful and easy for customers by lightening the financial impact.”

Poste Italiane is Italy’s largest service infrastructure network, “providing postal, financial, insurance, payments, telco, and digital services to households, businesses, and public administrations.”

For 160 years, with 12,800 Post Offices, 122 thousand employees, €582 billion in total financial assets, and about 35 million customers, Poste Italiane has been “an integral part of Italy’s social and productive fabric, unparalleled in terms of size, brand awareness, reach and trust. ”

Through its fully owned subsidiary PostePay, Poste Italiane “is the digital services ecosystem of choice in Italy with ca. 29 million payment cards, ca. 28 million financial apps, and ca. 9 million digital wallets.”

This funding is an extension of Scalapay’s $497 million Series B fundraising round, which was “announced in February 2022.”

This funding will go towards “the continued expansion and development of Scalapay’s world-class team, product development, and brand building.”

Scalapay is also planning on “expanding its executive team and company board.”

The additional funding “brings Scalapay’s total funding to date to $727 million.”

As noted in a release, Scalapay is “an innovative payment solution for e-commerce merchants across the globe that allows customers to buy now and pay later, in three convenient pleasurable installments, without interest.”

Spreading payments over time allows consumers “to choose what they really love, gives them access to the best quality, their favorite brand, or item without impacting their budget.”

Scalapay’s mission is “to provide a global platform that is based on pleasure and better consumption choices.”
