Affiliates group

Our forum designed to help to shape the payments ecosystem of today, and tomorrow

As the beating heart of the UK’s payments infrastructure, Pay.UK has created an inclusive Affiliates forum to promote discussion, ideas exchange and collaboration with financial institutions of all sizes.

Our Affiliates work to ensure we deliver on our commitments as a payment systems operator, and continue to build customer-focused products and services for the payment providers of today and tomorrow, offering greater benefits to consumers and end users.

As an Affiliate, you will be able to take advantage of a number of opportunities, including sharing industry insights and collaborating on a range of topics.

This includes Pay.UK’s existing products and services (Bacs, Faster Payment System), the New Payments Architecture, Request to Pay, Confirmation of Payee and other innovative overlay services, as well as playing a part in shaping new payments services by participating in Pay.UK’s advisory and test groups.

Today, our Affiliates represent much of the payments landscape, including high-street names, fintechs, overlay service providers, challenger banks, retail and e-commerce platforms, government and industry associations.

Join the conversation and help shape retail payments in the UK.
