About PAYA Group

PAYA Group is a UK based award-winning independent provider of card processing solutions to businesses of all sizes, with a focus on leveraging technology.

With the foundation of Acceptacard Limited and investment in European Payment Services Limited in 2009, the goal was to make card payments easy for adoption by small businesses and start-ups and to support the development of secure centralised facilities to multinational retailers.

Our customer-centric approach led us to the launch of card processing facilities which are tailored for and easily understood by our customers. Our segmented merchant services propositions now service retail, charity and B2B markets.

During 2017, we added QixPay Limited to the Group serving small and medium-sized retail businesses and LibertyPay Limited focusing on corporate and large charity solutions. In 2020 we disposed of our interest in European Payment services. During 2022 we expanded the group further with three more acquisitions.

The first, Interactive Transaction Solutions (ITS). ITS specialises in processing commercial card invoice data for over 3,000 customers and was previously owned by both American Express and Ingenico. The ITS payment gateway is PCI Level 1 certified with the ability to perform its own acquirer and terminal accreditations.

The second, the Toucan App appeared on BBC Dragons’ Den in February 2022, and has increased its user base, functionality, and product suite since launch in 2021. The acquisition of Toucan strengthens our offering in the charitable giving sector enabling us to further the vision of bringing digital transformation to the forefront, expanding engagement with individual donors where use of Apps is second nature. PAYA Group officially re-launched Toucan back into the market in July 2023.

The third and hot on the heels of Toucan was Thyngs & GoodThyngs. Thyngs is a longstanding proven solution for consumers to donate using their mobile phones, making donations simple, flexible and accessible to all. Thyngs specialises in the provision of experience based NFC/QR code triggered donations via its GoodThyngs brand and is now a product of PayaCharity.

Today, PAYA Group trades under a common identity across the PayaCardServices, PayaCharity, LibertyPay, QixPay and ITS brands and offers a wide range of card acceptance solutions, addressing the card processing needs of organisations of all sizes, across many sectors, supported by in-house technology, simple onboarding and exceptional customer service.
