our story

In 2015, PayCar was born from the wish of its two founders: the long term friends Vincent and Michael.

While buying and selling their used vehicles, they both used the most common payment method back then: the bank check. The experience turned out to be stressing and complicated. After going through the check’s verification, the bank constraints and the fear of being scammed, Vincent and Mike were surprised by the lack of substitutes for the bank check. This is especially the case since 10 million french citizens are confronted with the same issue every year (while buying or selling their used vehicles). You can now understand how the PayCar idea germinated and came to be in Vincent and Michael’s minds.

PayCar’s motto: An available and human customer support, simplicity and security at all times.
For a secured and qualitative offer, PayCar established 4 different partnerships with major actors of the payment sector.

Our mission

Bring trust back at the heart of important exchanges.
In a household, the vehicle is the most valued good after the house itself; The transaction of a used vehicle usually goes up to 11.000€ in average. Buying or selling a vehicle usually represents an important step in life: adulthood, the family’s expansion, career opportunities/career evolutions or just a project’s completion. Our goal is to provide the best experience to our clients, whoever they are, from the boats or bikes lover to the common everyday driver: (a serene and humane exchange).
