Fintech Mangopay Obtains UK E-Money License

Mangopay, a platform-specific payment infrastructure provider, announces that it has been authorized by the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) as an Electronic Money Institution (EMI). MangoPay is a successful, France-based Fintech that was acquired by a French bank in 2015.

The new e-money license from the FCA is “a key requirement for Mangopay to provide its suite of services to UK-based businesses and is a testament to the company’s strategic commitment to expanding its operations in the UK.”

Mangopay provides its flexible modular payments infrastructure “to thousands of platforms globally, including brands such as Vinted, Chrono24, Wallapop, La Redoute and Rakuten.”

The e-money license enables Mangopay “to issue electronic money, facilitate digital payments and provide a range of other payment solutions to meet the needs of its clients and help them navigate the complexities of digital commerce for international growth.”

UK-based businesses in the wider marketplace and platform economy “will continue to benefit from its flexible and tailored payments infrastructure.”

Romain Mazeries, Mangopay’s Chief Executive Officer, said:

*At Mangopay we are laser focused on providing marketplaces and multi-sided platforms of all types with tailored, modular solutions that remove the complexity of payments and help their businesses to grow. Exceptional product development combined with a relentless customer focus is in Mangopay’s DNA, and this FCA authorisation will unlock further innovation in the market. We’re excited to continue serving businesses in the UK having received our new license from the FCA.”

Luke Trayfoot, Mangopay’s Group Chief Revenue Officer who oversees the company’s UK entity, added:

“Mangopay already has a very strong footprint in Europe, and the FCA license is critical to us achieving our ambitious growth plans for the UK as we expand our business. We are extremely proud to be receiving our e-money license in the UK, which validates the robust capital, regulatory, and security standards that we uphold. We’re looking forward to working with our existing and new UK customers to support their growth journeys both here and around the world.”

As noted in the update, Mangopay empowers the platform economy “with its modular payment infrastructure.”

Created in 2013, Mangopay has “supported 2,500+ platforms and marketplaces.”

Built around its programmable e-wallet solution, Mangopay’s end-to-end infrastructure covers platform payment needs “from pay-in to payout, for many platform business models and workflows.”
