Founded in 1995 in Lincolnshire, Cardsave was considered one of the largest independent service providers in the UK. It offered point of sale (POS) terminals and card machines and negotiated rates for credit card processing through partners, like WorldPay. In 2010, WorldPay bought its former partner out and made it part of its global network of payment solutions providers. In 2014, Cardsave was completely rebranded as Worldpay. When Cardsave was acquired, it was being used by more than 65,000 businesses in the UK. Its site, Cardsave.net still exists and users can gain access to some of its old services, including card machine rentals, ball accounts and services are offered directly through WorldPay.
