Founded by Simone Mancini and Johnny Mitrevski in 2019, Scalapay is an innovative payment solution for e-commerce merchants across the globe that allows customers to buy now and pay later, without interest. Their BNPL offerings include three options for customers (Pay in 3, Pay in 4, and Pay Later) in which customers are not required to make any payments upfront, and can instead opt to pay in 3 installments, 4 installments, or entirely after 14 days.
The company, which has also launched a platform, called Magic, which is designed to improve the checkout experience for customers, currently works with major international merchants and retailers, including Shein, Decathlon, Calzedonia, Morgandetoi (Beaumanoir Group), Swappie, Moschino, Don’t Call Me Jennifer, Samsonite, Nike, and Pandora, among others. They are also the official sponsor for Milan Fashion Week.
