 |  February 22, 2023

Canadian FinTech Nuvei’s $1.3 billion acquisition of payment platform Paya is complete.

The all-cash deal, first announced in January, gives Nuvei ownership of a payment and frictionless commerce business that processed $50 billion in payment volume last year, the company said in a Wednesday (Feb. 22) news release.

“Nuvei and Paya are highly complementary with respect to geographies, capabilities to offer to customers and partners, and the end-markets and verticals that each currently serve,” the news release said.

The company notes that much of Paya’s business is in “high growth” verticals like healthcare, nonprofit, government, utilities and other business-to-business (B2B) end markets.

“This is an important milestone for Nuvei as we continue to build a preeminent payment technology provider with strong positions in global eCommerce, Integrated Payments and B2B,” Nuvei CEO Philip Fayer said in the release.
