The Merchant Payments Ecosystem (MPE) Conference in Berlin is Europe’s largest payments conference, and this year it returns – virtually – from 22-25th February 2021.
We are thrilled that Pennies’ CEO Alison Hutchinson CBE has been nominated in the “Influencer of the Year” award category, and YOU can register your vote for Alison right now by visiting the MPE voting page. Votes close on 15 February 2021.
Despite the inconceivable challenges we all continue to face, Alison and Pennies have continued to be influencers in the paytech space. In the last 18 months, alongside our partners, we have unlocked new channels for consumer donations, such as self-service checkout, new e-commerce options, telephone order payments, and Pennies’ first pay-at-table app.
A vote for Alison will recognise the efforts of our small but dedicated team and our fantastic ecosystem of paytech, fintech, merchants and customers.
Pennies’ growth of micro-donations – and the generosity of UK consumers – has exceeded expectations during the pandemic. During the first national lockdown (much like the current) 80% of Pennies partners’ doors shut to consumers. Yet incredibly, in 2020, we saw donation volumes increase by over 6%, to 22.5M individual donations. We also passed the incredible milestone of 100m micro-donations made for UK charities since we launched 10 years ago.
