Cardswitcher was founded in 2013 by Stephen Hart who was previously the Chief Financial Officer of the WorldPay Group. It was created to bring down the cost of card acceptance for SME’s who currently pay premium prices in comparison to larger retailers. We have created a market place to bring SME’s and suppliers together, where suppliers will compete for your business."

UK’s only price comparison website

Cardswitcher is the only price comparison website in the UK for merchant services and card processing. Other websites claim to give you a range of quotes but all they do is send your details to a few suppliers who will individually call you over a few days to give you quotes. At Cardswitcher we give you :

  • Instant quotes, no waiting, no callback
  • Quotes on the same basis allowing comparison across suppliers with full transparency of costs
  • A wider range of suppliers to choose from
