PayPort by Vocalink is the Faster Payments managed service gateway accredited for Directly Connected and Non-settling Participants. It helps to facilitate a level playing field between established financial institutions and challengers, enabling immediate payments for all kinds of PSPs.

Since 2008, the Faster Payments Service has given UK consumers and businesses a fast and secure way to move money online, at any time of day or night.

To remain relevant and meet your customers’ fast-changing demands, you need to make the most of the real-time Faster Payments infrastructure – and that’s where PayPort can help.


Customer expectations are rapidly changing and they are increasingly demanding higher and more sophisticated levels of functionality from their digital applications to make payments.

These payments could involve paying bills, making emergency payments, instant loan transfers or mobile payments through digital applications such as Paym and Zapp.

By connecting you to Faster Payments, PayPort enables you to meet such customer demands and to create customer-centric propositions built upon immediate payments.
