Spreedly and Pin Payments Help Fix a Broken System

Pin Payments is Australia’s only all-in-one programmable multi-currency payment system. 

Grant Bissett is Pin Payments’ co-founder and product manager. Below he explains how Spreedly is helping them to change the payments industry in their corner of the world.

How Spreedly Helps Pin Payments

Until recently, online payments in Australia were broken. Local systems seriously lagged what was available in North America and Europe. This meant that companies based here were at a disadvantage compared to their peers in other parts of the world. Not cool. I want to tell you about how Spreedly helped us to fix things so that Australian companies could compete online with anyone.

Startups need help. We’re a small new company, and our resources are limited. The only way for us to deliver a world-class contemporary payments stack was with help from specialists. We realized early on that we didn’t want to build our own credit card vault, because we needed to work on delivering features to customers instead. Spreedly helped us to attain a purpose-built secure storage environment, and to get our service to market fast.

Why Spreedly

“Spreedly are up-front about their adaptability. We’re connecting to different systems as we grow, and it’s important that we can expand to new markets or re-architect systems as-needed, without having to fight for our data each time. Using Spreedly helps us reduce any operational risk of lock-in with a particular provider or architecture.”


The technical fit is not really critical, but it’s a great bonus. We’ve been aware of Nathaniel’s (Spreedly’s founder/CTO) work with ruby for years, for example. Occasionally we’ll collaborate on a change to our product, and when we do it’s helpful to know we’re speaking the same language.

Thanks to Spreedly for helping us to fix payments in Australia. Justin and the team have been one solid piece of a pretty exciting puzzle (BTW Spreedly doesn’t pay us to write this stuff, we’re just happy customers.)

We believe programmable payments will become a standard requirement for businesses as e-commerce matures throughout Asia, and we’re pleased to have Spreedly helping to connect Pin Payments to the action.
