British Heart Foundation keeps donations rolling with help from WorldPay and POP

| 3rd Mar 14

In a bid to keep registrations for the London to Brighton Bike Ride flowing as smoothly as possible, the British Heart Foundation has worked closely with WorldPay and digital agency POP.

Each rider must enter their details and pay a registration fee when signing up, so the British Heart Foundation faces the dual task of ensuring that both its website and payment portal can manage a high volume of traffic.

Tom Barton, Senior Project Manager for the British Heart Foundation said: “One of the great things for us is that we know that the WorldPay payment gateway can cope with more capacity than it has to. I’d estimate that we currently only use around 10% of the additional processing capacity that we have with WorldPay, but it’s reassuring to know that the system can deal with whatever we need it to.”

“With both WorldPay and POP, we know that we have the right combination to make registration the smooth success that it should be. Taking revenue and registrations is a massive part of the London to Brighton Bike Ride for us, and with WorldPay and POP we’re working with organisations that have the technological expertise, resources and dedication that we need.”
