Who are Payji

Once upon a Payji

Payji was born following a meeting of minds in 2019 when Alex Booth was introduced to Mike Todd and Alex Szymborski.

Tried and tested over a near 10-year period, the platform has processed millions of pounds of transactions without skipping a heartbeat (>99.999% availability and a track record for real-time movement of funds), but the plan formed to put the technology to use for social good.

Rebel with a cause

The trademarked Payji name came about thanks to Alex Szymborski’s vision for using emojis and symbols as a smart, secure and frictionless way of enabling payment ascent – pay + emoji = Payji. So, whilst Payji itself is a relatively young business, the technology (and some members of the leadership team!), have been around for some time.

Both, happily, have successfully reinvented themselves on numerous occasions over the last decade, to ensure the technology stack remains cutting edge and appropriate for today’s users.

And we will continue to evolve to remain at the forefront of the pay-tech industry.
