TabaPay - There And Back Again Payments

Our Story

When we were founded in 2017, instant payments were (and still sometimes are) perceived as too costly, complex, or risky. Because of this, many businesses were still using slower, more traditional payment methods such as ACH or checks.

When creating TabaPay, we set out to meet the dramatic economic shift towards instant, online transactions; and we built a new platform from the ground up for real-time money movement

By owning the process end-to-end, we eliminate middlemen, resulting in a more reliable and lower cost platform for our clients. We make life easier for our clients by guiding them through their payment journeys, to get their money There And Back Again.

Taking things full circle, The Hobbit, or There and Back Again combined with payments is the origin of our name and to this day, we “never laugh at live dragons”
