payd originated from our innate belief that payments for physical goods & services will fundamentally change in an increasingly digital world!
We also believe that mobile enabled consumers deserve and demand a better experience, one where brands ‘know them’, this means understanding how and when consumers need their services or products.
payd is determined to offer consumers the services they are most interested in, with full spend control wrapped, in an effortless payment experience that not only delights but aims to reward.
Today roughly 3.2bn people around the world purchase and use prepaid airtime and data every day, representing a $500bn+ market in Total Payments Value (TPV) annually.
This market grows by approximately $12bn per annum. These products are purchased with cash and fulfilled using a plastic voucher, an inefficient and tedious way for consumers to recharge their phone.
Not too long ago the idea of airtime and data being paid for and distributed digitally was unheard of, and the infrastructure available was not ready to support such a change.
payd’s award winning platform enables banks to provide consumers with the ability to receive and pay for airtime & data services from their mobile phones anytime, anywhere. This has made us into an industry leader in the innovation of the technology that delights consumers today.
Through our ability to digitize, virtualize and distribute services, we partner with leading Banks and payments companies to enable these prepaid & subscription services on their core transaction infrastructure.
