UK, London, 08 February 2019 – The MuchBetter team triumphed at the 2019 Card and Payments awards last night, taking home the hotly contested Best Alternative or Digital Payments Programme Award in front of more than 1,000 industry peers.

The Cards and Payments awards are widely regarded as one of the biggest awards events of the year, and took place at the glitzy Grosvenor House Hotel in Park Lane, London. The awards celebrated some of the biggest names in the industry, including Mastercard, American Express, Lloyds Bank and now MuchBetter.

The alternative/digital payments programme award was judged by an independent panel of industry experts, based on award entrants’ customer value proposition, innovation, market penetration and

commercial success. MuchBetter’s win was testament to a fantastic 2018 in which it has welcomed more than 120 merchants, nearly 150,000 users and introduced several innovative new features to the service.

“I can’t think of a better way to kick off the year than with this win,” said Jens Bader, MuchBetter co-founder. “I’m immensely proud of the MuchBetter team and everyone who got us to the point we’re at today, we’ve achieved so much. Not that we intend to rest on our laurels for even a minute. 2019 is already shaping up to be just as successful as 2018, so expect more big news and more award wins in the year ahead.”
