Our mission

Our driving force

We believe that cashless payments should not only make life simpler for the end consumer, but also streamline the day-to-day work of merchants.

That’s why we have set ourselves the task of making the integration, processing and administration of electronic payments easier – and therefore redesigning it to make it more efficient.

Our values

The key factors that shape our work

At treibauf, we work as a team and have made it our passion to inject more flow to electronic payment processes.


The desire to solve problems

One of the secrets of our success lies in our passion for what we do every day – providing outstanding solutions to the individual EFT challenges our customers encounter.



The way we all interact is governed by interconnectedness. That means that we must be aware of our responsibilities and that our customers must be able to rely on us one hundred percent.



All of the solutions from treibauf are defined by the principle of openness: This means that they must always be capable of operating in a way that transcends the boundaries between systems, sectors and countries.
