About us

Shieldpay is a B2B payments business. We provide a cloud-based digital escrow and disbursement solution that makes it faster and more secure to send and receive high value, time sensitive payments. We specifically cater to transactions that have a ‘contingent element’ such as M&A, class action lawsuits, real estate, marketplaces, rental deposits, trust services and supply chain transactions.

Incumbent payment providers do not have the necessary regulatory licenses, account structure or disbursement technology to service these types B2B payment use cases. Therefore, due to the lack of alternatives before Shieldpay, legal and professional services entities have had to manage and maintain their own manual payment functionality.

These archaic, inefficient and manual processes means millions lost each year in administration costs and cybercrime and they result in slow processing and poor user-experience for the end customer.

Flexible working at Shieldpay

We know our people are juggling various things within their private, family and work life. We are pleased to treat our people like real adults and judge them on the work they do, not time away from their desk.

We follow UK working hours, however, where possible we want to accommodate structures that suit our people. Starting early, finishing, taking a longer lunch break are all normal for us.

We value in person collaboration time as well as virtual meetings so you will find our teams in the office regularly.

Approach to diversity & inclusion

At Shieldpay, we prioritise fostering diversity and inclusivity within our company. Our commitment to this goes beyond it being the right thing to do; we recognise that diverse teams create a safer, happier, and more productive working environment for everyone involved.

We are passionate about promoting diversity in terms of gender, physical abilities, ethnicity, and culture throughout our workplace.
Our goal is to ensure that every team member feels a strong sense of belonging and connection. Read more here.

What do we think of Shieldpay?

Working with Angela, Simon and the team at Shieldpay was an absolute joy! Their focus on DEI and people-first approach was clear from the very beginning. It's great to see they scored consistently high across the board too! Well done Shieldpay.
