WorldPay has announced that CardSave will begin trading as WorldPay from 3rd February 2014.
WorldPay acquired UK-based company CardSave in 2010, after a long strategic commercial relationship dating back 15 years. With a customer roster of over 75,000 businesses, CardSave has proven itself as a pioneer in serving the needs of small businesses across the UK, capturing Chip and PIN, mail, telephone and online payments.
WorldPay processes nearly half of all payments made on the UK High Street, providing card payment services for over 250,000 small businesses at the point of sale. Offering the widest range of online payment types in the market, businesses of all sizes use WorldPay for fast, secure online payments and fraud risk management in 148 countries.
Dave Hobday, Managing Director of WorldPay UK said: “This is another step on WorldPay’s journey as we continue to put customers at the heart of everything we do. We’re bringing together the sales expertise of CardSave and WorldPay to deliver simpler, more reliable and consistent services for more small businesses.”
Clive Kahn, CEO of CardSave added: “This represents the natural progression of our plan to combine high levels of service to independent businesses with the benefits of the dependability and scale of the largest acquirer in the UK”.
