Creating commerce conversations


Pollinate is a product driven software business, focused on payments. 

We were created to help the world's largest and most complex banks compete with digital challengers. 

Our global merchant acquiring platform was launched in Spring 2019 in the UK by NatWest (www.natwest-tyl.com). 

Over the past decade, due to huge advances in technology, changes to regulation, customer demand and a levelling of the commerce playing field, an entirely new industry of payments technology has emerged. 

This has created a plethora of new and innovative solutions for consumers and merchants alike. 

Working with banks and their legacy systems, we help them to launch new services that reinvent the industry. 

Led by a team of proven leaders across payments, technology, consumer and financial services and supported by a world class network of partners, Pollinate specialises in creating annuity revenue streams and new market value for banks.
