About Salt Pay

Salt Pay is on a mission to make small businesses feel big!

We are driven to make things happen. We have the ambition to grow fast and a desire to make the world a better place. We are entrepreneurs, not employees. And we don’t accept the status quo. We are risk-takers and we are not afraid to dream big. Ultimately, dreaming big costs the same as dreaming small.

Join us to build the most prominent European Fin-tech company! Salt Pay recently acquired Borgun hf, and that’s where we are located in Iceland. We are building top-notch products and services to support small and medium-sized businesses. With our high-end technologies and solutions, we allow merchants to focus on the things that matter and grow their business.

We started by offering merchants an Android-based payment terminal, CRM and Loyalty products, but we won’t stop there! We are a very ambitious, diverse and young team with big plans for improving merchant’s lives!

Our Vision

To become the merchant platform that redefines commerce in the digital age, no matter where you shop or how you pay.
