On a mission to support small businesses.

As Europe's largest merchant service provider, we can help you meet the growing demand for card payments.

Paymentsense Accept Card Payments

The cashless revolution

Over the last 50 years, the popularity of credit and debit cards has exploded. Their simple and secure payment process has driven consumer demand for small businesses to start accepting card payments.

Now, with card set to overtake cash as the primary form of payment*, thousands of forward-thinking businesses are looking for a secure payment solution for their in-store, online and over-the-phone transactions.

So whether you’re embarking on a new business venture or making improvements to an existing enterprise, accepting card payments can make a significant improvement to your business revenue, cash flow and customer satisfaction.

So the only question is, why should you choose us for your card payment solutions? Here’s the answer.

The power of the people

Unlike other merchant service providers who
offer low introductory rates only to raise them over time, we
utilise the buying power of thousands of businesses to give our customers
the best possible rates. In addition, our merchant services come complete with a Capped Rates,
ensuring our low rates stay low, forever.

It’s this approach to business, fair pricing and award-winning service, that’s made us
Europe’s largest merchant service provider.

So, whether you’re a new retail store, a much-loved café, a proud taxicab or a burgeoning internet startup, there has never been a better time to accept card payments to boost revenue, performance and success.

Much cheaper than Elavon. Jonathan came and did everything - he got me a terminal for my new dublin city pub in 4 days from start to finish. Impressive stuff...


Excellent support

I’m not the best with computers, but anything I've been unsure about Simon has been on hand to help me out. Within a couple of days our online shop was up and running. Very professional and patient.

What is a Merchant Account?

A merchant account is just part of the full range of services we offer to merchants. Each business that accepts card payments will have a merchant account. This is where all transactions are processed by your merchant service provider (us) and delivered to your business bank account. When you acquire a card terminal, we will set up a merchant account at no extra cost to you and use this to identify your business in the future.

What’s the difference between PDQ, card readers and chip & PIN machines?

PDQ machine, card readers and chip & PIN machine are all different names for card machines. All our handheld terminals designed to take payment from customers and process the funds into the merchant’s account.

How long will my card machine take to arrive?

As soon as you’ve had a chat with our team, we’ll process your order and dispatch your card machine. Your terminal should take 3 business days to arrive and following a quick and easy installation you can use it right away. If for some reason your machine breaks down, we’ll send out a replacement within 24 hours.

Can I get help setting up my terminal?

If you have trouble setting up your terminal or you just want a little guidance, our expert support team is available 24/7 and can help you set up.
