Ginger was born in The Netherlands, works across the EU, and has always had international ambitions. Our expansion into the US is natural given the size of the market and the strong growth of e-commerce payment revenues that banks are looking to capitalize on.
Amsterdam, October 23, 2019 — Ginger is closing out 2019 by entering the US market. Given an increasing number of inquiries from American banks, we will debut Ginger in the US at this October’s Money2020 event in Las Vegas.
While Money2020 will mark the beginning of our US endeavors, Ginger plans to announce new partnerships later in 2019 and roll out localized payment features in early 2020. Additionally, the Ginger team has planned several prospecting trips to New York City for the coming year and intends to open a local hub later in 2020 to better serve their North American clients.
On the move into the US, CEO Roderick de Koning, says: “Thanks to the overall growth in e-commerce initiatives like Apple Pay, and the success of fintech heroes like Adyen and Stripe, banks are rethinking their payments strategy. Payments, after a long time, have become sexy again. Banks are turning to Ginger because our PaaS model offers a novel way to gain cutting-edge payments capabilities without the upfront capital investment of developing everything in house. And we do it fast! Not to mention that with us, you forego ongoing maintenance and update costs.”

If you would like to learn more about Ginger’s products and services, you will have the opportunity to chat with Roderick de Koning (CEO) and Tom van Wees (CCO) from October 27-30, 2019 at Money2020.
Tom van Wees believes that: “Attending Money2020 will serve as Ginger’s launchpad to the US. Although we’ve fielded quite a few inquiries of interest to date, we are excited to introduce ourselves to American players who seek more holistic and flexible payment solutions that can easily be integrated into their existing IT systems. We think it is important to attend this event to help shape the future of payments and fully realize the value of online payments within the financial services industry.”
Ginger in 2020
Growth has been the name of the game. Our Amsterdam team has doubled in size in 2019 and is expected to double again in the coming year. Expansion into new territories – like the US – is set to continue through 2020. Given Ginger’s focus on international partnerships, we recognize the need to tailor our Payments Platform and website to each local context. For example, we plan to launch newly localized features on our payment platform that comply with US regulations and match the latest local market advancements.
