The Payment Service Provider processed a total of 137 million online transactions throughout 2012, representing 16.6 billion euros transferred over its platforms across 76 countries.

Brussels, 24 January 2013 - Despite the economic crisis, Ogone has enjoyed a 35.4% increase in turnover processed on its platforms in 2012 and expects similar growth figures for 2013. This significant evolution opens up promising opportunities for the online market in general, for Ogone's future and its 40,000 clients in particular.

With a worldwide presence featuring a strong pan-European focus, Ogone is now reinforcing its activity in the USA and in India, as well as prospecting new markets such as Asia.
