Allpay has been awarded a place on the Crown Commercial Service’s (CCS) payment solutions framework (RM3828).
Steve Hope, account manager, Allpay, said, “As a supplier on the CCS payment solutions framework, Allpay can provide prepaid payment cards via ‘Lot 2’, which allows organisations to disperse funds to those in need, in a safe, secure and financially inclusive way.
“For tenants, our prepaid cards carry the Mastercard logo and look like a normal debit card, so there’s no stigma attached to using them. And for housing providers and local councils, the prepaid cards offer a practical and efficient alternative to disbursing cheques and vouchers.
“Our prepaid cards ensure goods and services can be bought at the point of sale, online or over the telephone, offering a prepaid solution for those in need, regardless of their financial situation because potential users don’t need a bank account or credit check. All transactions are monitored to provide an audit trail, there’s no credit or overdraft facility and use can be limited to exclude certain merchant categories such as gambling and casinos.”
