Yorkshire Payments

Yorkshire-based payments services provider opens franchise for southern expansion

04 May 2017 16:00


Brighouse-based Yorkshire Payments has extended its services into the south, opening a franchise, South Coast Payments in Winchester, Sussex.

Founder and managing director of Yorkshire Payments, James Howard established Yorkshire Payments in 2013 with a vision to provide safe, secure and efficient payment solutions to a range of businesses across the region.

Franchisee, South Coast Payments, is led by Daniel Waller, who brings 6 years of financial industry experience to the business. With a background in FCA-regulated environments, Daniel undertook a number of senior roles within the sector before establishing the business.

South Coast Payments has plans to recruit one sales person every three months for the next year and is in the process of moving offices to accommodate growth.

To reinforce the typically Yorkshire approach to customer service, both businesses’ account managers are incentivised based on their commitment to customer service, rather than sales, which results in an open and honest sales process.

Yorkshire Payments is currently the only independent service organisation to provide card payment solutions in Yorkshire.
The firm has a five-year franchise model in place, whereby the business will extend its payment services nationally, opening additional franchises across the UK.

James Howard, founder and managing director of Yorkshire Payments said:

“I founded Yorkshire Payments with a view to take our strong focus on customer service and typically Yorkshire values national. We want businesses to trust in us and feel safe and secure in the knowledge that they will get exactly the services they pay for.”

Opening a franchise in the south has allowed us to effectively do this and the team at South Coast Payments have been fantastic at delivering our core principles and values to southern customers. We have a number of exciting plans for the future.”

Daniel Waller, director at South Coast Payments commented:

“We’re incredibly excited for the future of South Coast Payments and hope to experience the same level of success that Yorkshire Payments has in the Yorkshire region. Although Southern based, our core values of honesty and integrity are the same and we endeavour to deliver service to our customers that is second to none. With strong plans for growth, the future is looking very bright for South Coast Payments.”
