About us

Yorkshire Payments are a unique brand, serving only the County of Yorkshire. We are the only independent provider of payment technology in Yorkshire, and we are proud of it.

Founded in 2013 by current Managing Director James Howard, we set out to be different.  We provide local, personal and fast service to our customers – that makes us different.

We provide merchant services to suit each individual customer, not one-size-fits-all – that makes us different.

We are a focussed team dedicated to what we do: our overheads are very low, our prices are low – that makes us different.

The team are all full-time, salaried employees of Yorkshire Payments – that makes us different.

We believe that these things that make us different also make us more valuable to our customers.

That value, plus great referrals, drives our success.
