About Us

Why we were founded

iPiD is a fast-growing, venture-backed fintech start-up that is founded by a global team who have held senior roles at major payments and technology companies, including SWIFT and Thomson Reuters. Together, we share a vision to simplify cross-border payments to be as easy as a text message. 

We achieve this by partnering with financial services providers (e.g. banks, payment fintech, wallets, remittance companies) to deliver a suite of proxy look-up, request-to-pay and payment-to-wallet services. It is a first-of-its-kind service that makes cross-border payments easy by needing only a simple proxy for the payee’s identity. We act as a data orchestrator and enable global payments based on a phone number, email address, QR code, Corporate Registration Number and other aliases.

iPiD is built for all – we do not replace banks, payment fintech, wallets, remittance companies, nor do we replace payment rails. We provide an addressing and messaging service that all can leverage to offer a better user experience.

What we do

We focus on enhancing the pre-payment process by enabling financial service providers to offer alias-based payments services to their customers. We act as a data orchestrator and enable global payments based on a phone number, email address, Facebook ID, QR code, and other aliases.  This means banks and payment fintechs will be able to offer their customers a more intuitive and secure experience at the same time as improving operational efficiency and reducing costs.

What we don’t do

iPiD does not compete with existing payment providers. We do not process payments or change the way payments are settled. We cannot see and do not store payment data.


Where we are

Let’s work together on your payment success.
