Payever get investment from HTGF
Being founded in December 2013, the payment toolbox for businesses lived from scholarships, grants and its own income. Different to the US-based Square, Payever not only offers a online shop solution, but also lets user pay via Facebook, email and transfers, on top of PayPal and credit card payment, which are the two ways Square offers. Now, HTGF (High-Tech Gründerfonds) invested in Payever. Though the amount remains undisclosed, the amount is probably €500 k, which is what HTGF usually invests.
