Qippay started with a few colleagues sitting around a table trying to figure out how to help businesses survive and even thrive in the Covid-19 pandemic.

Our vision is to see small businesses regain control and thrive regardless of the economic conditions of the time.

We realized that payment chasing and arranging credit were the two main concerns for small businesses. In November 2020, we launched our first product, Pay. It allows companies to utilize their credit cards to take control of expenditure and better manage their cash flow.

Due to the high cost of transaction fees, we noticed that our Qippay clients were not accepting credit cards as a form of payment. So, we set out to build a simple payment solution to change the way businesses operate.

Accept, our flagship project, is a free product allowing businesses to collect credit card payments – without paying merchant fees. These transaction fees are instead passed on to the customer, allowing small businesses the opportunity to save thousands per year.

We have since introduced two other products, Qippay QR and Qippay Charity: free, contactless payment solutions. These products allow businesses and charities to generate QR codes on their smartphones or tablets that customers can scan and make payments.
