The strategic partnership will bolster Judopay’s services and touch-free payment solutions 

Judopay, a leading mobile-first payments provider, today announces its partnership with Mastercard, which will further increase Judopay’s network with a direct route to Mastercard’s Payment Gateway Services global acquiring ecosystem.

For Judopay customers, this partnership adds acquirer optionality and enhanced resiliency, as well as faster deployment and additional support when businesses are looking to expand internationally. Mastercard’s global reach is also providing Judopay with the ability to increase their foothold in Europe, Asia Pacific, Australia and North America.

This partnership comes at a time of accelerated online activity, following the global COVID-19 pandemic. Having launched hygienic payments for pharmacies, enabling customers to buy their essentials online and have them delivered directly to their door, Judopay and Mastercard are now working to launch more touch-free payment solutions for businesses across the UK and abroad.

Throughout the lockdown period, consumers have become increasingly comfortable with shopping from the safety of their own handset, whether at home or on the move. Additionally, online transactions have skyrocketed and will continue to grow into the future. Therefore, the partnership will provide online merchants with the means to meet this increasing demand in an efficient and secure way.  

Judopay’s CEO Jeremy Nicholds, commented: “The partnership with Mastercard is the natural next step for our relationship. It will be a key strategic partnership as we grow our business across a range of different markets and head into an increasingly digital future.

He added: “Mastercard and Judopay already have a successful track record, having worked together to provide Pay by Link solutions earlier this year. Now, we aim to help those adapting to the new normal by building a touch-free economy that’s accessible to all.”

Keith Douglas, Executive Vice President, Payment Gateway Services, Mastercard continued: “We’re looking forward to building on our long-standing relationship with Judopay to help them provide more people with more touch-free payment choices in more places around the world.”

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.
