At Blink, we continuously 'explore the possible' by constantly challenging convention, innovating, and utilizing the latest technology. We want to make keeping track of payments and getting paid as easy as possible for our clients.

We're here to help businesses overcome these core problems:

Keeping track
Struggling to keep track of all payments doesn't have to be a thing.

Reducing risk
Exposure to risk is part of the card payments landscape, but effective measures can be taken.

One simple platform
The time and inconvenience of using several payment interfaces are challenging. Blink is an all-in-one solution.

Removing barriers
If only one or two people understand your existing payment systems, your business is vulnerable.

Boosting efficiency
Chasing customers for payments is costing businesses time and money and can lead to cash flow issues.

Customer convenience
Today's business customers deserve a better, more flexible customer experience. Blink gives them the convenience they're after.

Being able to run everything from one platform should feel smart and savvy. While getting paid should be quick, easy, and secure for all types of businesses. We provide a unified flow, facilitating multiple payment options, in-depth reporting, customization, and account management in one platform.
