Team

We believe that everything and eveyone works better in freedom. Money, time and humans thrive for it. Therefore we took our collective experience and created Focalpay.

Team

Vision

With a groundbreaking, minimalistic approach we have set out to free the world from monopolies and intermediaries - to these time thieves and money wasters we bid a final farewell. Instead, we shake off musts, buts, and cants. We say: let’s get back to basics. Let’s get b-ack to a blank slate where all needs, desires, and beliefs can find a way to truly blossom. Seamlessness, security, agility, and catalyzation are more than words to us – it’s our DNA. We gladly hand it over to you, and once you’ve grasped it, it is yours to create, build and develop from.

Think about it. We know it might be hard to imagine. But at least picture this: with Focalpay, it’s within reach.
