Established in 1989 under its original business name, Streamline, Worldpay is a large-scale, global processor that assisted in pioneering web-based payments in the early 1990’s. Worldpay positions itself as a worldwide payment solution, with offices located in Montreal, Canada; San Francisco, California; and the United Kingdom — including London, Cambridge, and Manchester. Worldpay also maintains several satellite offices throughout Asia, and operates in three divisions: Global eCom, Worldpay US, and Worldpay UK.
As of 2017, Worldpay employs roughly 4000 employees, and services over 400,000 merchants, in 126 different currencies, throughout 146 countries.
Worldpay’s presence is largely felt in the UK, as the company claims to be the leader of payment processing in the region, covering approximately 42% of all transactions in the United Kingdom.
