About Paya

We're different...

Payatrader.com, brought to you by Acceptacard Limited, is the UK's first dedicated solution for small businesses with fully integrated technology. First piloted in 2010, it was specifically designed for small businesses and those that accept low volumes of card payments. It now caters for a broad range of business types from start-ups with no trading history, to established companies looking to reduce costs or for greater payment functionality, flexibility & control.

Since the launch of Payatrader in 2010, the brand family has been extended to include Payataxi, Payaprofessional, Payacharity, Payastore and Payamobile.

In 2014 Paya Card Services (PCS) became the umbrella brand for Acceptacard Limited, catering for the needs of larger businesses and offering the world's first validated Point-to-Point Encryption (P2PE) service - a compelling new product that allows merchants to meet the significant challenges of achieving and maintaining PCI Data Security Standards while saving significant costs.
