Suresite, the UK card services and risk management company, has achieved a new landmark with its processing of bank card transactions exceeding £2bn per annum. From its launch in 2005, Suresite Card Services has grown to become the leading provider to group retailers and large multinational organisations in the UK forecourt sector and now serves any industry that accepts card payments, including convenience, car sales, hotel and leisure.

"This is an incredible achievement for Suresite in a relatively short time," said David Wright, card services manager, Suresite.

"Our aim has always been to make the card services operation as easy to manage as possible and at the best rates available. This resonates with businesses of all sizes, who also value our high levels of support services and technological know-how.

In the UK, card spending accounted for around 78% of all national retail sales in 2016, while card transaction throughputs across Europe grew by 6.5% in the past 12 months.
