Clearhaus was founded in 2011. The company’s initial purpose was to succeed in the online payment world by bringing change. The company, which is based in Denmark, now has 43 employees.
Clearhaus signed up its first Danish customer in March 2015 and its first non-Danish customer in June 2015 (United Kingdom). Expansion was rapid and by August 2015, Clearhaus had signed its 1,000th customer. By December of the same year, Clearhaus held a 10% share of the Danish market. This achievement was recognised by the Nordic Startup Awards of 2016. By July 2017, their market share had risen to 20%.
The company’s customers cover a broad spectrum, from start-ups to corporations. Clearhaus now handles transactions from over 7,500 online companies. In August 2018, it celebrated the opening of its first office outside Denmark. This new office is in London.
