  • What is Judopay? I do not recognise a payment on my bank statement

    Payments made via judo may be prefaced by ‘APL’, ‘APL/’ or ‘APL*/’ on your bank statements. APL stands for Alternative Payments Limited. The text after ‘/’ will be the trading name of the business you’ve made the purchase from. For example, Mike’s Café might appear on your statement as ‘APL/MikesCafe.’ If you’re viewing your payments in your Apple Pay sleeve, the charges on your statement will be prefaced by ‘/’ only, so Mike’s Café appears as /MikesCafe. If you don’t recognise the charge on your statement or require further information, you can contact our customer service team at 0203 503 0600 or

  • Why there is an extra charge for £1.01 in my bank statement?

    This is not a charge and it will be removed from your bank statement. Depending on the financial institution, this will take anywhere between minutes and few weeks. This amount corresponds to a pre-authorisation. These are reserved funds that are put on hold by your card issuer, and they are are performed to attempt to confirm the card information entered is valid and the bank will allow your transaction. The usual amount is £1.01, but it may vary depending on the business requirements. Sometimes when you are registering your card in an app or website, you will see the same pre-authorisation. In this case, this is referred to as card verification. If you have further questions about how your bank handles pre-authorisaions. we advise you to contact them directly.

  • What is the difference between native app payments and in-app payments?

    Native app payments are the best way to process payments for goods or services. Native app payment means a card payment that is made for a 'real world' good or service from within your app. Your customer does not leave the app or get redirected to a website to complete the payment ('web' payment) giving the developer more control over the look and feel of the consumer experience. An 'in-app' payment is a payment for digital goods like getting orange hair for an angry bird or upgrading an app game from free to paid. In-app payments can only be provided by Apple or Google.

  • Do you provide the UI for one-click payments?

    Our API and SDK support one click payments but we do not provide the UI for this, as it would be specific for each client’s needs. This will need to be created by the app developer to fit in with the overall design of your app.
