Creditcall is a payment service provider and payment gateway based in the UK, providing credit card authorisation and settlement services to banks and processors in the United Kingdom, United States and Canada.


Creditcall Limited, originally Creditcall Communications Limited, was founded in 1996. Later, a North American subsidiary, Creditcall Corporation, was incorporated in 2005. The name Creditcall is derived from the name of Creditcall's first product, a telecommunications service that enabled callers to bill telephone calls to their credit or debit card.[1] Creditcall won 3i's Business Catapult Award in 1998 along with an initial investment in the company.[2]

In 2012 the management team completed a management buyout of the company backed by FF&P Private Equity and Bestport Ventures.[3]

On 21 April 2014 Creditcall was awarded the Queen's Award for Enterprise.[4][5][6]
