Pumpkin, the mobile application for payment between friends
Instant, free and 100% secure
Pumpkin is an instant, free and 100% secure consumer refund application. No need for an IBAN, a bank advisor, or validation within 48 hours... The user creates an account manually or via Facebook connect, registers their payment card and can then send or request money from anyone using their phone number. On Pumpkin, people don't just exchange money, they share good times. The founders wanted to add a social aspect to these transactions, such as likes and dislikes. Pumpkin now has more than 900,000 users, with just over 3 million transactions made since its creation and around 10 million euros exchanged every month.
The idea of the application was born on the corner of a sheet of paper in 2014. Constantin Wolfrom, Hugo Sallé de Chou and Victor Lennel, who were students at the time and concerned about the problems linked to the various daily repayments, developed Pumpkin. The objective: to transform payment and transactions into something fun and playful to erase all the pain associated with money exchanges between individuals. Three years later, after two fund-raisers and a takeover by Crédit Mutuel Arkéa, Pumpkin has now turned a corner and is evolving to become the leading player in community payment.
Spread over Lille and Paris, Pumpkin's team continues to grow: it now comprises more than thirty employees.
