Our Story

We are a dynamic technology company specialising in the innovative use of mobile and cloud technologies to simplify and speed up ordering and payment within the hospitality industry.

Founded by seasoned entrepreneurs from retail and hospitality, we understand both the technological and operational requirements for success.

Created by Checkfer Hospitality, OrderPay grew from two key realisations: 1) Customers don’t want to download a different app for every brand or venue they go to, and 2) Operators want a technology partner they can trust and that keeps innovating to keep them ahead and their customers happy.

Our approach rests on the ambition to build an industry-wide coalition that benefits both Operators and Customers. All Operators on the OrderPay network share in the profits of our business and help shape our product direction.

Our mission is to be the only technology partner you need for mobile ordering and payment and to keep innovating to keep you ahead.
