Business Mobile Payment Card Terminal

Recommended Posts

I'm currently looking into methods of customers being able to pay via a mobile.. The original thought was via a dedicated mobile card reader, but that now seems old hat.. You can get apps for Android & iPhone, which provide a way, and with some firms, they provide a card reader - for a fee of course of course (but this seems to make the fees cheaper)..

I did see https://sumup.co.uk/ (who seem to charge the lowest fees I've currently seen), but they rely on sending a text to the customer, and then they use their phone to make payment...Not keen on that method, as not everyone has a web-enabled phone...

Can anyone suggest / recommend a good, cheap reliable service?

My business uses a bluetooth mobile card reader from Elavon http://tellmemore.elavon.com/mobilemerchant/

We've been successfully using their mobile device forthe last 2 years. Overall it was the cheapest we could find, though you do have to pay £99 for the reader.

Hmmm..Out of interest, what are fees? If possible, I may be looking at having a feature whereby, after payment, the customer can be sent an invoice via email, which can be personalised with the company / customer details.

Fees are 2.75% per transaction, no other fees, though their website says there is a £25 joining fee.

Our business operates in the open air and at the time, this was the only mobile solution we could find. Customer is sent a text confirming the transaction.
