1 Year in the Bambora Family

Last month, Beanstream celebrated its one year of being a part of the Bambora family. Beanstream was officially acquired on September 30, 2015, joining eleven other companies to revolutionize the payments space.

If you don’t know much about Bambora, you should read the story. The short version is that our CEO, Johan Tjärnberg, saw a way to make a very complex market simple: by controlling the entire value chain, across markets, with a startup culture.

Bambora was born from that idea; to innovate, to surprise, and to delight. Bambora turned two this year and is now serving merchants in 62 countries. Bambora welcomes over 2,600 merchants each month and has already processed over 67 billion canadian in payments.

While you may not have heard much about Bambora in North America (yet!), this past year marked a lot of exciting milestones for Beanstream. We launched sproutPOS, expanded into the US market, made a new partner marketplace, and created two industry-leading onboarding tools for our partners.

And we aren’t planning on slowing down.

Next year will be even bigger. While Beanstream has been acquired in the past (four to count), Bambora is here for the long run. So keep a look out for the zebraf in the new year.

Beanstream has had an incredible year being a part of the Bambora group. As a customer of Beanstream, you may not have noticed any difference yet, and that will all change in the new year.

Welcome to the zoo.
