Based in Galway Crescent, Haydock and founded in 2006, Handepay is an independent sales organization (ISO) for Evo Payments International. Based in Atlanta, Georgia-based, Evo Payments provides merchant acquiring and processing solutions for merchants, independent software vendors, financial institutions, ISOs, government entities, and corporations in North America and Europe. Handepay also works as a reseller for the UK processor, Streamline.
Equipment leasing is offered through Merchant Rentals, which is housed at the same location as Handepay. There are reports in the digital space that Merchant Rentals is simply “doing business as” Handepay, though this could not be confirmed.
Handepay provides credit and debit card processing services to merchants based in the UK, though it tailors its services to small and mid-sized businesses. In June 2017, it announced it had expanded its service to merchants in Scotland.
Handepay claims that, on average, merchants who switch over its merchant services save 36% in card processing fees. It further claims that it offered UK business owners a combined savings of more than £3.75 million in 2016. To date, Handepay serves more than 28,000 customers.
