ImpulsePay’s technology allows people to make purchases on their mobile phones in a few simple steps, a method of payment up to seven times quicker than using a credit card, according to the firm. Examples of partners include CrossCountry Trains, which uses its payment platform to bill passengers for access to wi-fi, and DonateToday, which uses it for charity auctions. Founder and chief executive Chris Newell, 37, set up the business in 2009 and has integrated its platform with all the leading UK mobile phone networks. This helped to boost sales in 2016 to £16.2m, a figure that includes the total value of purchases made.
