Welcome to Opayo by Elavon 

Opayo is the new name for Sage Pay. We are one of the UK’s most trusted payments providers, helping businesses grow and accept payments from customers. In 2019, our gateway processed £40bn worth of card payments for over 50,000 merchants, online and in-store. 

We changed our name because we were recently acquired by Elavon – a big name in payments and a subsidiary of U.S. Bank. 

This great news means we can offer an even richer suite of services. Soon, merchants will be able to accept more payment types from customers; opening up greater opportunities to grow and creating better, more personalised experiences.

But some important aspects of our business won’t change at all. You’ll still enjoy the five-star service reflected in our Trustpilot ratings – with our knowledgeable team just a phone call away, at any time of the day or night. 

We've always been proud of our security, reliability, and amazing customer support. And with our transformation into Opayo, we’re adding new levels of technological innovation – opening up our customers’ businesses to the world and everyone in it.
