Richard Carter, Founder of Lopay commented: “Lopay’s mission has resonated with thousands of small businesses and sole traders who are being squeezed simultaneously by high inflation and fragile customer demand. Lopay’s easy-to-use app and card reader give small businesses an instant way to save money on every sale they make. More than 20,000 firms have already found that switching to Lopay is a small step that makes a big difference to their bottom line, and that’s why several of the UK’s leading industry bodies have chosen to partner with us.”

This British startup wants to give consumers enhanced access to, control over, and flexibility with their money. In essence, according to the company, Lopay's instant settlement and affordable fees are under a third of what PayPal and SumUp and Zettle charge, as per reported by techfundingnews.
