Reading time: 2 mins

Worldpay has grown into one of the world’s biggest payment solutions providers with a strong focus on small and medium-sized business as well as supporting large corporates.

Worldpay, a long-time leader in payment solutions

Worldpay was launched in the UK in 1989. First known as Streamline, they are now completely independent from any bank and are now a public limited company listed in the FTSE100. Worldpay covers the whole scope of payment options, including:

- In-store payments

- Integrated till and card payments solutions

- Online payments

- Payment over the phone

- Payment by email link

PDQ Machines

PDQ machines are still one of the major lines of products offered by the company, with one of the market’s most comprehensive range of systems:

- countertop systems now support contactless payments,

- portable PDQ machines also support contactless payments, and can be connected through Wi-Fi or Bluetooth,

- mobile card machines can be used anywhere network coverage can be found, and accept cardholder-not-present transactions.

Users of all these PDQ machines can rely on 24/7 UK support, no joining fees, and flexible pricing plans including pay-as-you-go, monthly flat rate or mixed plans with transactional fees.


Integrated till and point of sales solutions

Worldpay’s till solutions offer businessess a simple way to take payments, print receipts and reconcile their day’s sales. Operated by a detachable tablet device, it lets you take payments over the counter, or anywhere on your shop floor via WiFi.

The Worldpay Online payment gateway and the integrated pay page

As early as 1994, Worldpay became one of the first companies to offer payment systems for use on the internet.

This Worldpay gateway is a popular and cheap solution for smaller retailers to enable them to take payments from their website.

Medium to larger businesses may prefer the “integrated payment page”, which is completely integrated within their own websites.

This has the advantage of letting them completely customise the look and feel or the interface, and not confusing customers who never actually leave the retailer’s website to make their online payments. 

Payments by phone or email

Worldpay offer industry-leading solutions to allow businesses toprocess payments over the phone using a secure web browser or by sending payment links to their customers by email.
