This transformation will see the collation of the Edenred Group’s payment expertise and technology under one roof - a shift that will provide our customers with an even more robust and simplified solution, while strengthening our capabilities.
Why the shift to Edenred Payment Solutions? And why now?
The fintech space is rapidly evolving with an increasing number of solutions entering the market. 2023 is no exception with the industry expected to multiply and reach $174 billion this year.

A strategic focus from the wider Edenred ecosystem - in which Edenred Payment Solutions has a critical role to play - combined with the ever-flourishing fintech evolution, further motivated our decision to rebrand now. By embracing this progression, we can now serve communities, and businesses, and better foster financial inclusion while connecting with our vision: Empower Innovation, Unleash Potential.
Moreover, as the market continues to face turbulence in the face of a challenging economic environment, Edenred Payment Solutions is dedicated to designing effective and tailored products and services that support business continuity.
