About us

Access to the UK’s payment systems is vital for organisations providing the payment services their customers need. To help meet this need, Pay.UK acts as the administrator for the Access to Payments website, and code of conduct, providing information on both the payment schemes that are part of Pay.UK (Bacs, Cheque & Credit and Faster Payments), as well as CHAPS and LINK.

Pay.UK is the UK’s leading retail payments authority. Our aim is to enable a vibrant economy by delivering best in class payment infrastructure and standards for the benefit of consumers and businesses throughout the UK. The Access to Payment Systems website is designed to improve the disclosure and transparency of information for participants in payment systems, enabling greater visibility and access to information across payment systems. It presents links to individual payment schemes and helps Payment Service Providers (PSPs) to make comparisons across both direct and indirect access offerings, and between different sponsor banks.

The Access to Payment Systems website also hosts the Code of Conduct for Indirect Access Providers.


For more information about access to payment systems, please speak directly to the payment schemes or sponsor banks.
