How 3 became 300

We founded our company in 2018 with just 3 people. Our ambition was to grow DNA Payments into a fast, dynamic business with technology and payments infrastructure at our core. Since then, we've developed, acquired, implemented, and invested our way forward to ensure our customers and partners thrive with the best possible omnichannel payments ecosystem and a range of integrated alternative payment methods. We're now a Group of 9 companies with 300 strong experts and growing!
