We Help Software Companies Succeed

We want to be the platform that all software companies use to run and grow their business

We believe that software companies succeed when they can focus on building awesome products that the world loves and scale their business, rather than wasting time on building and maintaining everything that's required to run and grow.

This is why hundreds of developers and software companies rely on our checkout and licensing solution to sell their products globally, as well as using our powerful analytics and marketing tools to understand and grow their businesses.

We’re early in our journey but making good progress: Deloitte Fast 50 named us the fastest growing software company in the UK (we’ve tripled revenue every year since our launch in 2012), and we’ve raised over $17m in funding from incredible investors such as Notion, BGF and Kindred.

Christian founds Paddle from his bedroom in Corby, United Kingdom (the glamour!), he is 18, and this is his third business.
