About us

Who We are?

Lateral Payment Solutions Limited was established in London in 2001 to serve the complex and very specific Payment Processing requirements of the E-Commerce Industry. The skill set of our team encompasses every aspect of the industry and our senior management have all previously held top positions in successful E-Commerce ventures.

Lateral Payments is a Level 1 PCI compliant service provider, and an accredited BACS and Direct Debit Bureau. Along with multiple integrations into 3rd party payment providers, we give you the ability to securely process almost any transaction your business may require.

Local Payment Acceptance

The Lateral Payment Solutions’ servers are all housed in an ultra secure location in London, certified to ISO27001. It’s also one of the few data centres in Europe to have obtained full PCI compliance for hosting.

We are very selective in choosing the security products and services we employ within our network. Anything we introduce is rigorously tested and acknowledged as the industry leader in its category. Often we adapt the product in clever ways to make sure it improves our security levels without affecting how we control our networks. All systems are also updated daily with the latest security information to keep pace with evolving threats.

Local Payment Methods

We pride ourselves on the professional nature of our services and our list of accreditations backs up our philosophy. We continually strive to reach the highest standards possible at all times.

  1. PCI Compliant: We are PCI Compliant Level 1 Service Provider. All transactions passing through our Gateway are covered under our Level 1 certification. This is the highest standard of data security as measured by the Payment Card Industry and has so far been awarded to just 1,000 service providers worldwide.

  2. BACS Approved Bureau: We are an independent BACS Bureau sponsored by a leading UK Bank. Lateral Payments is able to securely submit and collect payments on your behalf through the BACS System.
