About Us

Yoyo is one of Europe’s fastest growing payment, loyalty and customer engagement players.

Our Mission

Founded in 2013, from day one our mission has always been to disrupt the cosy world of payment, taking the transaction and turning it into a delightful, rewarding experience for shoppers and an insightful and meaningful engagement channel for retailers.

Starting as a pilot project at Imperial College, London, today you’ll find us powering commerce experiences across European high streets, banks and canteens.

"We’re reimagining the payment experience.

When it comes to payments and loyalty, every one of us is an industry leader. We turn our expertise into value for our customers, the company and each other.”
