The award secures PPS’ reputation as the leading payment provider in the industry. 

PPS also shared in the successes of several of its clients at the prestigious awards ceremony. Tide was Highly Commended for the Best Service to Businesses award, and Countingup was Highly Commended in the Best Payments Industry Newcomer category.
