A trio of superheroes are ready for life's challenges.

The thrill of the first transaction.

“It started on September 4th, 2011. We remember the name and the location as one of the best experiences in our history! Our first transaction was recorded on our Spanish site. In 2017, we opened a German depot which was a first step in the European expansion and one year later our sales exceeded 20 million euros. We needed to ensure that we were providing a complete and seamless customer experience: this became possible with Worldline.

"In the whole user experience, the payment is the final phase and we needed a reliable payment partner who could help us guarantee a successful customer journey from beginning to end" said Carlos Larraz - Co-founder & Chief Executive Officer – Funidelia.

“We can look with confidence to the future and contemplate our strong growth, knowing that we can rely on a reliable, flexible and international payment partner.”
