Our Story

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

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

Created by Checkfer Hospitality, OrderPay grew from 2 key realisations: 1) customers don’t want to download a different app for every brand or venue they go to, & 2) operators want a technology partner they can trust & that keeps innovating to keep them ahead & 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 & help shape our product direction.

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