Meet the

YouPay team

We are here to build the future of smart shopping together, powered by Shared Payments.

YouPay was born in 2020 from a need to create a new option to the likes of ‘Buy Now Pay Later’. Rather than encouraging people to pay for one quarter of a purchase upfront, potentially accruing late fees, we empower shoppers send private payment links to friends and family.
