Tech.eu puts it as Klik & Pay, which is part of the Swiss company Cyberservices, throwing a lifeline to Paymill. The German company was founded in Munich in 2012 and was backed by incubator Rocket Internet. Together with funding from other investors it raised 16.5 million euros in order to be the European answer to US payment service company Stripe. Just as its American inspiration, Paymill offers its customers the ability to accept credit card and debit card payments online.
Paymill announced this May it made the decision to go for a preliminary insolvency, as it was in advanced negotiations about a merger and acquisition. Back then founder Mark Henkel said it was an emotional period. Now his company has been acquired by Klik & Pay and he will remain on board.
