Our Story

Founded in 2009, the company goal was to address the affordability issues faced by small and micro businesses, and those that accepted low volumes of card payments.

Our first custom-designed merchant services proposition was Payatrader. Today, PayaCardServices (trading under the PAYA Group brand) offers a wide range of card acceptance solutions, addressing the needs of start-ups with no trading history, to large established companies looking to reduce costs or for greater payment functionality, flexibility & control.
