We’d like to introduce you to Isaac. The name was inspired by the fact that it’s both an Issuing and Acquiring processing platform. This makes Tribe the perfect choice for anyone who wants to do both without wasting time setting up separate agreements. One Licence, one set of scheme fees and no messing about.
We know you need things done fast. We offer a suite of products to get you set up and trading quickly including a digital wallet and app with built-in loading channels. We could even have you up and running in less than a month as part of our Fast Track programme. It’s triple quick.

Modular technology is an evolution in the way we can help you to build your payments solution. Just choose the modules that give you the right functionality, right now.
And if it’s not right any more, change it. Modular is always having exactly what you need. You’ll never be stuck with something you don’t want.
Give me cool stuff and make it snappy
Only want processing services or a payment gateway? No problem. Need a digital wallet right now but want to use a different processor? Just need acquiring? Sure. Snap them together and go to market.
When you want to change things, click additional modules into place. Unplug connections you don’t need. Link to new services and other providers. It really is that simple.
Because our system is modular, the programming code is isolated. That means making changes is lower risk compared to legacy platforms.
And when a module needs updating, we’ll just replace it. It’s constant regeneration. We’ve broken the cycle of obsolete platform technology. Cool, huh?
Offer your customers everything from card processing, payment acceptance and settlement through to leading-edge technology including:
Here are a few more facts for tech fans:
If you’re planning on issuing cards, you’ll want to offer the most widely accepted and fastest growing. Tribe is the first card payments platform to enable you to offer Visa, Mastercard and Union Pay cards.
People choose cards that solve specific needs. Whether you are offering cards to consumers or to business users, the closer you tailor your card to their exact needs, the more irresistible your offering will be.
You will also benefit from some great tools and options to help your card programme stand out and make money.
Another boring programme manager portal
Only joking. TribeHub grants you superhero powers to control your whole programme and expose hidden insights, whether you are issuing physical cards or virtual cards in a digital wallet.
Get close to your customers
Assign cards to groups and set rules that precisely control how your programme performs and match it to the needs of your customer. If you want to get technical, that means you can segregate and manage programmes with 12-digit sub-BINS. TribeHub also enables you to view transaction data with x-ray like vision.
Get even closer
Not only can you apply rules at group level, they can also be applied at individual card level for absolute control. The more control you take, the closer you get to your customers. Build a deep, meaningful and profitable relationship with your customers through website, app or customer service portal including live chat.
Control when and how fees are applied to keep your customers happy and your business profitable through TribeHub. Tailor fees and how they are applied to support your business model and brand promise. Send marketing newsletters to upsell your services or promote a referral campaign.
Risk if you want it
Is your business model based on accepting a higher level of risk in certain scenarios? If so, we can connect you directly into the transaction process, so you can make the final authorisation decision. Address new markets and liberate the underserved. Run free and change the world!
Stay ahead of fraud with the latest 3D Secure 2.0 and fraud detection powered by Artificial Intelligence. Every virtual card created for digital wallets has built-in compliance with PCI security regulations.
Give your customers the ability to accept the most popular and fastest growing types of card payment in the world. Then sprinkle some tasty toppings that your customers and their account holders will find simply irresistible.
You can offer the ability to accept payments online or in mail/telephone order environments:
Your customers can offer their cardholders benefits including:
Your customers can also offer partial authorisations that save their cardholders inconvenience and embarrassment. Instead of declining a transaction that takes a cardholder over their limit, they can use the funds available on their card to partially pay and use an alternative method to cover the outstanding amount.
Programme Management tools
And of course, there are management tools that give your customers the ability to control their programmes from setting and customising fees to managing those annoying yet inevitable chargebacks.
Plug and play
There’s good news if you want to connect our acquirer processing, or any other Tribe service, to your existing Gateway. Unlike some legacy systems, we use Restful JSON APIs. In English, that means you don’t need to waste time and money working out how to integrate lots of bespoke file formats to make all the techy bits play nicely together.
Security and compliance
Be super selective
Bringing your payment programme to life can involve a lot of different service providers and partners doing many different things. The more experienced you are, the more selective you’ll be about who does what. You need a gateway that throws open the door to a world of choices rather than limiting who you can do business with.
Our Gateway enables you to integrate with a huge choice of:
It can also provide you with:
You own and can personalise the complete user experience without the headache of bringing all the complicated operational and compliance responsibilities in-house.
No strings attached
Like all aspects of our offering, the Tribe Gateway is modular. If you are a PSP or ISO, you might want just our Gateway with no strings attached. You could even be an established acquiring bank that’s looking for a way to broaden its offering. Seriously, not a problem.
You’ll see and control everything through our Gateway dashboard. Every aspect of your transactions will be visible including external partner activity such as PayPal transactions.
Forget what you know about digital wallets. Amaze your customers with our white-labelled digital wallet for fiat or crypto currencies that are stacked with cool features that you and your customers will love.
Our digital wallet has been lovingly hand-crafted to give your customers control over their spending and a great user experience. Here’s a few things they can do via a web portal or mobile app:
A full digital account system that:
To be honest, we don’t really think of what we do as products. They are more like lightning bolts of commercial wizardry. We should really have these guys in Harry Potter outfits.
The Quality Assurance team are always quick to spot anything out of the ordinary that might cause trouble.
Because many of us like to sit in front of computers inventing things all day, we really need our Commercial & Partnerships team. These people go outdoors, meet people and have grown-up business meetings.
Suresh is the leader of our Tribe. Just like our platform, Suresh is also a modular construction. However, unlike our platform his head and mobile phone are a single module and apparently cannot be separated, ever.
