Hate queues? Avoid busy establishments because you don’t want to wait? Us too. That’s why we founded WoraPay – mobile technology to beat queues. WoraPay’s service allows customers to buy food & drink, pay in advance with their mobile and be notified when the order’s ready to collect. Wora Pay has integrated Masterpass, from Mastercard which allows users of WoraPay’s mobile wallet WioPay to pay with a secure, quick, one-click payment.
WoraPay was founded by Vaidas Adoumauskas and Aurimas Bakas in 2012. We’ve been running our beat queues solution for several years now. So as well as providing the technology, we can give retailers practical advice too. Wora Pay is the payments without the queues platform founded in 2012 and specialising in helping retailers to increase sales and profit by allowing their customers to avoid the need to queue to pay. How great would it be to pay for your petrol without having to leave a sleeping child in a car? Or pre-order your drinks at a concert from your phone? WoraPay has made this possible making life easier for the consumer. Making life easier for the retailer – there’s no need to install hardware machines with WoraPay. Our technology runs on tablets. If you give us your menu today, we can launch tomorrow. WoraPay was launched in the Baltics and quickly gained traction securing the biggest retailers as its clients. In November 2015 WoraPay launched the service in UK and has already saved thousands of hours from queuing for the UK customers working closely with Masterpass (Mastercard) and Lloyds Bank, Mitie (Gather & Gather) and ISS – but to mention a few. The service is also increasing turnover and profit for the catering companies and other retailers.

Aurimas Bakas, co-founder – I believe I have always been too young to achieve what I managed to achieve. I was 21 when selling major internet ideas to the biggest advertising agencies in Lithuania was my daily job. I was 23 when I was sent to the UK and Ireland to establish the first foreign offices of the biggest Lithuanian multimedia company Gaumina. I was 25 when many major UK and Irish brand names were my customers. I was 28 in 2010 when DtecNet, the company I managed, won a Gazelle award for 2400% growth during 2007-2009, won an award of The most successful young IT company in Lithuania, went through the due diligence process and was acquired by MarkMonitor, the global leader in enterprise brand protection.
