Our purpose and values

Many see transaction costs as just another cost of doing business. Not us. We constantly challenge this convention to help our clients save, and even make money from payments. How? We do it by streamlining your payment processes to reveal and eliminate hidden inefficiencies. Optal frees global companies and marketplaces to transfer funds quickly and securely to almost anyone, anywhere.

  • Being savvy

    We are smart specialists who understand the wider transaction challenges and how these fit into the bigger picture of business.

  • Being tenacious

    We take time to immerse ourselves in our client's businesses to seek efficiency and added value. We bring our 'can-do' attitude to bear to get the job done right.

  • Being versatile

    We are flexible in all we do. From our stackable, scalable and open technology to the 'client-centred' service we provide, we aim to deliver optimised, integrated solutions.

  • Being influential

    We are powerfully connected. Our preferred status with global card and banking partners means we carry trust on our shoulders. It gives us a voice and a responsibility, and our clients the security and value they desire.

  • Being transformative

    We think in an entrepreneurial way. We help our clients see the hidden, untapped parts of their payments ecosystem and magnify these into outcomes that enhance their bottom line.
