As we head into December, and 2023 draws to a close, we’re feeling reflective. It’s important to stop and take stock of what we’re trying to accomplish, and remember our guiding mission.
Christmas is a time for giving, and receiving. But, we know that the moment that presents are exchanged represents just a tiny fraction of the thought, care and attention that goes into them. The same is true of payments. The tap or swipe of a card, cash changing hands, or a click, as you pay the people and businesses you care about most is just the tip of the iceberg. At VibePay we believe in the value that exists both before and after the point of payment, which is why we’re endeavouring to make channels meaningful platforms which enrich and embolden each and every transaction. We’re excited to further those ambitions in the new year, with the addition of group channels. The weather may be getting colder, but we’re making cash more conversational, and making the payments space a warmer, friendlier place to be.
This time of year is particularly important, but also challenging, for small businesses, sidehustlers and creators. Our core principle of free, instant payments ensures that hard grafters are paid ALL of what they earn, as they deserve, affording them more £££s in their pocket, and in turn, more time to relax, reflect and share with family and friends. In 2023, the cost of living crisis has seen more of us turn to sidehustles to supplement our incomes, just as was the case last year. More than half of those Britons with multiple streams of income acknowledge that they can be stress inducing. By ensuring that you’re paid on time, and in full, we are alleviating some of that burden. This isn’t just about money, it’s about better vibes, for everyone.
With warm wishes,
