UM will handle all planning and buying for iZettle on an ongoing basis.
Edgar Rouwenhorst, CMO at iZettle, stated, "UM was selected on the strength of a standout response to our brief. We wanted to work with a UK-based agency that would both inspire us with a data-driven approach and understand how fast we and our industry are evolving.”
iZettle was founded in Stockholm in 2010 and is a provider of portable credit card terminals for small businesses. Currently it’s focused in Europe but has a Brazilian operation. It launched into the UK in 2012. The company now operates in 12 countries.
