allpay was founded by Tony Killeen in 1994 and was known as Financial Collection Services (FCS) Ltd. It was a company that provided swipe card facilities for local government and housing associations. Its rapid growth led to a change of name in 2000 – allpay.net Limited in 2000. It was felt that ‘allpay’ reflected the core of the company’s electronic business solutions.
The allpay Group now consists of six businesses: –
- Bill payments – facilitating the collection and receipt of revenues
- Prepaid cards – for the paying out of benefits and allowances
- Card manufacturing and bureau facilities – securely producing and distributing secure credit, debit and prepaid cards
- Print and design
- Rude Wines – online wine retailer
