MatiPay is an Italian fintech company that transforms automated, manned or unmanned sales points into connected and intelligent ones thanks to its innovative payment and telemetry systems. The company current connects globally more than 59,000 vending machines.

Matteo Pertosa, CEO of MatiPay commented on why the company has decided to join the EVA, “Becoming an EVA member represents an important step in the growth path for our products and expansion to the foreign markets. EVA is a point of reference for the European vending industry, and we expect this membership to allow us to start an important development process. We joined EVA because we intend to perceive new standards from the vending market and gather new ideas from this synergic collaboration.”

Erwin Wetzel, Director General of the EVA is pleased to welcome Matipay to the Association, stating, “We have known Matipay for some years now as they were a previous sponsor of our EVEX event in Rome, and so I am thrilled that the company has now joined the EVA and can now benefit from our full range of services as well as our European-wide industry knowledge and insights. Seamless and convenient payment solutions at vending machines is something consumers have come to expect – particularly so over recent years – and with new trends such as smart fridges taking off for operators across Europe, it appears that Matipay seems well prepared to capitalise on these trends with their various solutions.”

Matipay, already a member of the Italian Vending Association (CONFIDA) is based in Bari, joins the EVA as a Full Member.
