Alternative Payment Solution: Paym

Alternative Payment Solution: Paym


Paym is a UK-based mobile payment solution, launched in April 2014. The service enables fund transfers between bank customers using mobile phones. The Payments Council was initially responsible for supporting the launch of Paym, which is now run by Mobile Payments Service Company Ltd (MPSCo). Paym is an addition to the mobile banking app provided by banks and building societies.

Transfers using Paym can be made through a bank or building society’s app, once a user has registered their mobile phone number with their current account. The speed and security of money transfers using Paym are the same as for online transfers, as Paym uses the Faster Payments infrastructure.
