PayPo had already announced its launch in Romania two years ago
PayPo, one of the leaders of the Polish deferred payment market, has made a production launch of its services in Romania. As PayPo CEO Radoslaw Nawrocki told cashless.pl, the company had been conducting family-and-friends tests of its solution in this market for some time, and three weeks ago PayPo deferred payments were offered to customers of several Romanian online shops.

The fact that PayPo with its payment services has ambitions to go abroad has been known since at least 2020, when representatives of the fintech announced it in one of the press interviews. At the time, it seemed that the implementation could be carried out in 2021. However, the work has been delayed.
As I already mentioned, PayPo is one of the leaders of the Polish deferred payment market. In our country, the fintech's services can be used by customers of many online shops, e.g. Media Markt, Empik, eobuwie or Modivo.

PayPo is another Polish fintech going abroad and another one that chooses Romania as its first target. Let me remind you that PayU has been offering its solutions to customers there for quite some time. The operator of the Blik system also has plans to enter the Romanian market. It is also worth remembering that many years ago, the Polish Alior opened its virtual bank there, launched in cooperation with T-Mobile on the same model as the Polish T-Mobile Banking Services.
