We Are Payaut

We are an Amsterdam based, rapidly expanding startup and we offer a flexible payment solution for leading platforms. Strong, cutting edge code is the foundation of our company.

Payaut is THE new payments platform for online marketplaces. These marketplace platforms deal with challenges around payments, regulations, and payouts to the sellers on their platform.

At Payaut, we help marketplaces grow their business by taking over the complex and time-consuming process of:

  1. Customer onboarding while verifying them through Know-Your-Customer checks
  2. Automating all incoming payments to ensure compliance under PSD2 regulations
  3. Paying out the platform plus its own sellers

We offer a challenging startup environment. We believe that being part of Payaut and building the next fintech company from the ground up, is a great opportunity to bring your career to the next level.
