about us

PayByPhone is part of PayPoint, a leading international provider of convenient payments and value added services to major consumer service organisations in the utility, housing, water, telecoms, media, financial services, transport, retail, e-commerce, gaming and public sectors.

PayPoint delivers payments and services through a uniquely strong combination of local shops, internet and mobile distribution channels and handles over £14 billion from 760 million transactions annually for more than 6,000 clients and merchants.


PayByPhone is a leading international provider of services to parking authorities allowing consumers to use their mobile phones to pay for their parking by credit or debit card.  It has contracts in the UK, France, Canada, the USA and Australia.


Formerly known as Verrus, PayByPhone was founded over ten years ago and now operates across North America and Europe in over 150 cities including London, Miami, Vancouver, Newcastle, San Francisco and Paris.

Motorists find the PayByPhone service easy to use and appreciate the many user friendly options the service provides - such as a text reminder before a parking session expires. This enables the motorist to add additional time without the hassle of returning to their vehicle. At the same time, parking operators increasingly recognise that mobile payments can both reduce the costs associated with operating expensive pay and display machines as well as increasing revenue per parking session.


PayByPhone operates on a state-of-the-art IT platform that supports payments via touch-tone/IVR, text, the Internet and mobile web. The technology is both robust and highly secure. PayByPhone is accredited by Visa as a Level 1 data processor under the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standards - the highest level of accreditation available.
