Merchant Alert: Payecards Downgraded To Orange Compliance!

Payecards downgraded to Red Compliance
Spread financial intelligence

The high-risk payment processor Payecard is operated via the UK-registered Payecard Global Ltd, controlled by Turkish citizen Halis Bayraktaroğlu. Payecard makes changing statements about the operating legal entities there and previously claimed to have companies in Switzerland and Germany. This could not be verified. Allegedly some partners terminated the cooperation. PayRate42 has placed Payecard on the Orange Compliance list. Merchants should be cautious.

Short Narrative

Payecards has worked with a wide variety of partners since 2020. Among them were allegedly the FCA-regulated Cauri Ltd and Aeloria Ltd, through which the FIAT services were handled. This was claimed on the Payecards website at least in 2021.

All in all, Payecards‘ rating of orange by the cyberfinance rating agency PayRate42 seems justified. One could probably even consider a red compliance rating. In any case, merchants should be super-cautious.
