European spend management market leader brings card issuance and settlements in-house

July 8 2020, London: Spend management platform Soldo today announces that it has extended its partnership with Mastercard®, to become a principal member of the global pay-tech giant. The partnership enables Soldo to become more autonomous in innovating payments products and further reduces dependencies on third parties.

This announcement coincides with the successful migration of more than 60,000 Soldo customers to in-house card issuing to ensure operational continuity for Soldo’s customers. The migration was originally planned for August 2020, but accelerated due to Wirecard’s temporary suspension of service by the FCA.

Mastercard principal membership represents the next step in a successful partnership between the two companies. In addition to the ability to issue cards directly, Soldo will also have access to a wider range of products and services to further improve its customer offering.

Carlo Gualandri, CEO at Soldo says: Soldo has reached an outstanding milestone with our principal membership and we’re incredibly proud of everything that the team has contributed to get here. The extended partnership marks the next stage in Soldo’s development and increases our infrastructure ownership. The team at Mastercard was fantastic to work with during the rapid card-issuing migration process. We look forward to continuing together to reinvent the way that businesses manage their spend, making the process more efficient, less painful, and ultimately saving money.

Edoardo Volta, Head of Fintech at Mastercard continues: “Soldo’s elevation to principal member status is a natural development of our long-term partnership. Soldo’s rapid growth and consistent commitment to innovation align perfectly with Mastercard’s ideals, as we are constantly evolving our offering to support our fintech partners. We can’t wait to see what Soldo does next.”

Soldo’s relationship with Mastercard began five years ago, and now more than 60,000 businesses use Soldo to manage, control and enable company spending. The elevation to principal membership status is recognition of Soldo’s considerable growth, revolutionising business spending across Europe.

Tip: Check your spam

Sometimes our e-mails end up in spam. Make sure to check your spam folder for e-mails from The Payments Association

Tip: Check “other” tabs

Most modern e-mail clients now separate e-mails into different tabs. For example, Outlook has an “Other” tab, and Gmail has tabs for different types of e-mails, such as promotional.

Tip: Click the link within 60 minutes

For security reasons the link will expire after 60 minutes. Try submitting the login form again and wait a few seconds for the e-mail to arrive.

Tip: Only click once

The link will only work one time – once it’s been clicked, the link won’t log you in again. Instead, you’ll need to go back to the login screen and generate a new link.

Tip: Delete old login e-mails

Make sure you’re clicking the link on the most recent e-mail that’s been sent to you. We recommend deleting the e-mail once you’ve clicked the link.

Tip: Check your security policies

Some security systems will automatically click on links in e-mails to check for phishing, malware, viruses and other malicious threats. If these have been clicked, it won’t work when you try to click on the link.
