“Without Shieldpay we would not be able to manage our high volume of payments with the same level of service quality, fraud protection and speed. By using Shieldpay’s litigation solution, we have been able to reduce the cost of processing compensation funds and been able to seamlessly comply with regulation. Our ongoing relationship with Shieldpay will enable us to scale our operations and pay out more claimants the compensation they deserve.”

Shieldpay has a customer Trustpilot rating of "Excellent"

5 star rating

"I completed the verification, I waited a day or two and messaged Shieldpay to confirm the verification had gone through, I submitted my maiden name account but the Law firm had my married name so it wouldn’t verify. However this was easily rectified by Shieldpay who sent me another link. Payment was received within 72 hrs. Highly recommend."

"All checked out and the call handler was quick to answer and had a friendly manner. Money appeared in my account within 36 hours. Not many companies left that provide a faultless service. Well done Shieldpay and keep up the good work!"

"My solicitor advised that Shieldpay would be in touch to issue payment for a group action settlement.
I was promptly contacted via email with a link to their secure website to verify my bank details, which I did. Within 24 hours the money was in my account.
Thank you Shieldpay!"
