About Clearhaus

A team on a mission to reduce friction in online payments.

Who is Clearhaus?

Clearhaus is an acquiring company founded in 2011. We specialise in offering payment solutions to webshops across Europe. We are technology-driven and customer-centric.

When we started, our goal was to succeed in and change the world of online payments. Since then, we have grown rapidly. Now we have 43 hard-working employees dedicated to satisfying our customers.

What we do

Clearhaus is aspiring to offer the most convenient way for e-Commerce companies (merchants) to receive online and mobile payments.

We believe we can achieve this by continuing to expand our innate technology-driven culture and structure.

What we do is enable e-Commerce companies to accept payments in their online shops and mobile apps. We handle their transactions and make online payments faster, simpler, and more secure.

Every day we handle transactions for over 7,500 merchants. They range from startups to large corporate businesses.

Our development has led us on the path of:

  • Operating our own infrastructure
  • Developing important features
  • Providing extensive APIs
  • Implementing an insightful dashboard


Clearhaus is authorised as a Payment Institution with a pan-European license by the Danish FSA and is a Visa and MasterCard Principal member. It is our duty and pleasure to serve and protect your business in every transaction.
