Payment Platforms

If you’ve found yourself to this page, you are probably looking for some guidance on payment platforms that accept Guernsey businesses.

Sadly there is a lack of availability of global payment systems for Guernsey businesses. Diane, Director at DNA, has been lobbying to raise awareness of this issue since she started her practice in 2014, and is now part of a working party trying to remove barriers so we increase the options and hopefully attract some of the big players like STRIPE and GoCardless.

We are regularly asked about what platforms are available in Guernsey, and in the interest of narrowing the research everyone needs to do we have collated a list of suppliers that we believe (but we don’t guarantee!) accept Guernsey companies.

Sumup ~ Easy, secure, and affordable small business card payment solutions.

Vend ~ All in one commerce platform for retailers.

Omnipay ~ Payment platform with virtual terminal, PDQ machines, ability to share payment links and more.

Worldpay ~ Worldpay Is a Merchant Services and Payment Processing Provider Offering a Payment Gateway for Online Transactions

Paypal ~ Payment platform with solutions to accept online payments and to take payments in store / person.  Although we are hearing they are withdrawing from Guernsey after acquiring iZettle (which doesn’t operate in Guernsey).

Pay360 ~ Payment platform with solutions to accept online payments, telephone and to take payments in store / person.

Globalpay ~ Accept payments online and via mobile devices. Also offers cloud based POS solutions.

eposnow ~ offers retail and hospitality POS solutions.

FastPay ~ allows businesses to collect direct debit payments, and integrates with Xero (plus other accounting systems).

Access PaySuite ~ all payments in one place – including direct debit options.

Adyen ~ end to end payment platform.

Smarter Payments ~ Payment solutions for small businesses to large enterprises.

We also recommend you discuss with your bank, as they have solutions they can refer you to that may not be on this list.

Also – if you have issues with any of these, do let us know, likewise with additions to the list.

If you have a payment provider who is unsure if they can service Guernsey clients, you can point them to the GFSC FAQs which now includes the following useful information:
