Our Team

Team

The Founders of PayCraft came together with a common dream to amalgamate the traditional complex worlds of “Fare Collection” and “Banking” to make Travelling an effortless experience. Travelling is a necessary evil and we firmly believe that our daily travel experience using public transport can potentially affect efficiency at work. While there are several aspects of providing an outstanding travel experience, PayCraft decided to focus on making travel simpler by making Financial transactions simpler for the purpose of travel. Simply put, we combined the EMV and QR technologies to offer a pleasant travel experience to the daily commuter.
