Paymentwall

Paymentwall Inc. is a payments platform which services businesses in the SaaS, travel, and E-Commerce industries.

History

Honor Gunday and Vladimir Kovalyov started Paymentwall in April 2010 to help game companies on Facebook monetize their global traffic.[2]

On July 1, 2011, Facebook announced that they would no longer allow any outside monetization providers, at which point the company pivoted to providing services to non-Facebook games and online dating websites.[3][4]

In 2011, the company entered into partnership with Alipay, a third-party mobile and online payment platform, established in Hangzhou, China in February 2004 by Alibaba Group.[5]

Paymentwall launched a payment system for Smart TVs in November 2014.[6]

In 2018, Paymentwall has spun out Terminal3 as global payment platform for gaming companies.[7]

In November 2015, the company unveiled its intergalactic-themed development lab in Kiev.[10]

In July 2019, the company officially announced its two new office locations in Bangalore and Gurgaon.[11]
