Our Story

Since the launch of Card Industry Professionals there has always been a strong focus on offering businesses transparent pricing and first-class customer service.

Established in 2017, Card Industry Professionals (CIP) formed to ensure that all businesses have access to the latest and most relevant card payment solutions, education on pricing, alternative payment options, emerging trends and on-going support.

We believe in developing long term relationships with businesses throughout the UK, boosting confidence and building trust in the products and services we offer. This is proven by our 5-star rating on Trustpilot.

In 2021, CIP were finalists at the Card & Payments Awards in the categories for ‘Best Payments Industry Newcomer’ and ‘Innovation in Retail Payments’ alongside well-established and prominent companies such as Barclays, Lloyds/RBS, Mastercard and Square. We were also finalists at the UK Fintech Awards in 2021 for two categories, ‘Online Initiative of the Year’ and ‘Trainee of the Year’ for Beth, our Junior Product Manager. 

Our Founder | Director Ciaran Savage was included in the Forbes 30under30 Class of 2021 Europe in the category for Finance which was released in April 2021.
