LONDON, 14 August 2017—The Payments Association welcomes Clearsettle as a new member and lead sponsor of the association’s annual awards. Clearsettle, based in London, offers a global white label payment gateway that enables payment service providers (PSPs) to offer hundreds of payment methods in countries around the world. Through membership in the Payments Association, Clearsettle joins a community of innovators who aim to improve payments for everyone.

Clearsettle, a rapidly growing leader in global payments, makes it simpler and faster for anyone, no matter where they are, to pay and receive money. The Clearsettle platform empowers PSPs and their merchants to execute payments in over 140 countries—and connects them to local bank settlement networks around the world. With one integration to Clearsettle, PSPs can accept payments and make marketplace payouts globally. By offering hundreds of preferred payment methods, Clearsettle can help merchants increase conversions and make payments easy and secure for consumers.

“Clearsettle is becoming a major player in the payments space, both in the UK and around the world,” said Tony Craddock, director general of the Payments Association. “They have a vision for the future of global payments—and the technology and organisation to make that vision a reality. We welcome the insights their team will bring to our group.”

Clearsettle is part of the AKCE Holdings group of companies, a payments ecosystem committed to removing obstacles in the global flow of money so that people everywhere can access the goods and services they need. In addition to its lead sponsorship of the Payments Association Awards, Clearsettle is also sponsoring two individual award categories: Best PSP or Acquiring Solution Provider and Leading Payments Association Organisation.

I didn't receive an e-mail

Tip: Check your spam

Sometimes our e-mails end up in spam. Make sure to check your spam folder for e-mails from The Payments Association

Tip: Check “other” tabs

Most modern e-mail clients now separate e-mails into different tabs. For example, Outlook has an “Other” tab, and Gmail has tabs for different types of e-mails, such as promotional.

Tip: Click the link within 60 minutes

For security reasons the link will expire after 60 minutes. Try submitting the login form again and wait a few seconds for the e-mail to arrive.

Tip: Only click once

The link will only work one time – once it’s been clicked, the link won’t log you in again. Instead, you’ll need to go back to the login screen and generate a new link.

Tip: Delete old login e-mails

Make sure you’re clicking the link on the most recent e-mail that’s been sent to you. We recommend deleting the e-mail once you’ve clicked the link.

Tip: Check your security policies

Some security systems will automatically click on links in e-mails to check for phishing, malware, viruses and other malicious threats. If these have been clicked, it won’t work when you try to click on the link.

Need to change your e-mail address?

For security reasons, e-mail address changes can only be complete by your Member Engagement Manager. Please contact the team directly for further help.
