    À propos

    Alma is on a mission to become the European leader on the (very) hot market of Buy Now, Pay Later. In less than 3 years, we sold our B2B2C solution to 5 000 merchants and served over 1 million French consumers. The team grew from 2 to 150 people and we raised a 49M€ series B early 2021 to help us accelerate further.

    At Alma, we assume that finance is a business enabler and our payment solutions bring great added value to merchants and customers.

    For merchants, our solutions of installment payment and deferred payment are excellent ways to increase customers’ loyalty and satisfaction, as well as generating up to 20% extra sales revenues without any risk, Alma handling it for them.

    For customers, the buying experience is enhanced (4.8/5 on Trustpilot) and Alma grants them the possibility of handling their budget easily. They pay later, Alma pays merchants right away.

    Even if we enable merchants to sell more, we believe that trading is sustainable only if it is well balanced. We eliminate purchase frictions, but NEVER we encourage customers to get over-indebted.
