Brisbane entrepreneur Michael Dempsey has expanded his holdings at Mermaid Beach on the Gold Coast.

Dempsey, who founded and sold Ezidebit, an innovative payment method, paid $2,165,000 for a 1970s cottage on a 410 square metre corner block 40 metres from the beach.

The two-storey house with two bedrooms last traded for $1,315,000 in 2011.

Harcourts Coastal agent Katrina Walsh sold the Albatross Avenue dress circle property.

Dempsey sold Ezidebit to US-based Global Payments for over $300 million in 2014, and pocketed $150 million himself.

He owns $10 million plus adjoining holdings on nearby Surf Street.
