Who are 3S Money?

We know first-hand how difficult it is to scale a business internationally, so we decided to do something about it. Our international accounts help businesses feel at home in every market, regardless of their passport. Because it isn’t about where you’re from, it’s about the value you bring.

Entrepreneurship

International payments for the brave

We exist for the brave businesses going beyond borders and the boundary-pushing founders behind them. All of our clients share the same goals: to get closer to their customers, launch in new countries, and build a business without limits. It takes courage to take on the world - we'll help you get there.

Where it all began

3S Money began with a problem: our founders had launched a business in the Netherlands but, without Dutch passports, were shut out of the Dutch banking system.

If you don't have the right passport, your business often can’t access new countries. But we believe in entrepreneurship, not banking bureaucracy, so we fixed it.

We set out to build a revolutionary banking platform to help mid-sized businesses scale in new global markets, faster.

The result? One digital account that enables payments in 190+countries and access to 65+ currencies

3S Money  now

Today, we’re the international payment service of choice for thousands of shareholders and directors. We have 150+ employees in 6 offices. In 2022, we processed $3 billion in client payments.

A lot has changed since we launched in 2018, but our vision remains the same. We’re building a fairer financial world, helping businesses feel at home in every market.
