We launch a striking new logo, switching from a 2D lightning bolt encompassed by a circle to a 3D lightning bolt showcasing different shades of yellow and orange. We’re always finding ways to push ourselves and refine who we are as a brand. The refreshed logo is dynamic and modern, two words we associate with the FasterPay brand.
A year of firsts! Such as welcoming entrepreneurs, start-ups, and established companies from Berlin to our first networking event.
We make our UK debut at the World Travel Market, introducing ourselves to over 50,000 attendees.
A new logo launch! The lightning bolt. Founder and CEO, Honor Gunday, said: “The lightning bolt represents the Entrepreneurial spirit and the human desire to buy stuff, both are occurrences that can strike anywhere and any time. Lightning doesn’t discriminate, it can strike anywhere and anytime, much like what our merchants can start a venture anywhere in the world and still use FasterPay, thanks to our global onboarding, our global language support, and currencies; and the buyers can be anyone, from anywhere. A transaction happens in a flash of a second and is captured by FasterPay.” The company also made its first conference debut at ITB Asia in Singapore, followed by Money 20/20 in Las Vegas.
Time for a new feature! Recurring billing. It launches for merchants who want to implement subscription payments for their service or product. Meanwhile, the FasterPay team expands once more to new offices in Bangalore and Delhi in India.
The company becomes financially sustainable, without external investment. To mark this success, the FasterPay team grows in several countries.
FasterPay onboarded its first merchants and experienced massive growth in its first month.
Unlike other digital wallets, we play the role of an honest intermediary between the consumer and the merchant, making sure the transaction concludes satisfactorily for both sides. In 2017, the first team for FasterPay is created and the product is coded by a group of experts while leaving room for experimentation, trial, and error.
An important year for FasterPay, as we obtained a license in the UK under the FCA. The next step? To build the product!
The idea of creating a UK-based digital wallet intrigues Honor Gunday, the founder and CEO of FasterPay, and so he purchases the rights to the name from a previously operating digital wallet.
