Cash is dead.
Long live card.
It’s official – cards have overtaken cash. In fact, 77% of total retail sales are now paid for by card and it’s estimated that by 2024, 16 billion card transactions will be taken a year. That’s a whopping £718bn*. So if you aren’t accepting cards, then you’re missing out. It’s that simple. We currently help 70,000 businesses take credit and debit card payments. And we can help you too.

Accepting card payments is an easy and quick way to boost your business. It makes impulse buying easier, increases your customer base (especially if you’re creating an online shop) and means you won’t have to turn any cash-carrying customers away. Plus, it’ll mean you have less cash and cheques to deposit, so fewer bank fees. It’s win-win-win.
There are four ways you can take card payments; with a card machine, on the phone, via email or online using a payment gateway. Whichever you choose, we make it easy. First, we’ll set you up with a merchant account (everyone who accepts card payments has to have one). Then, depending on how you want to take payments, we’ll help you choose the right card machine, or set you up with an online payment gateway.
Because no business is the same, we don’t believe card processing fees should be the same. It’s common sense. So we’ll take the time to understand your business, and type of card payments you’ll be taking, before giving you exact costs. However, our rates are the best around, often 40% lower, thanks to our Strength in Numbers approach.
If you choose to have a card machine, you’ll pay a small monthly rental fee, but we don’t charge any set up fees and your bill will be easy to understand. As you may have noticed, we’re big fans of keeping things clear and simple.

The card machine is up and running, taking contactless payments which is what I was most worried about as it’s so in demand, as well as Chip and PIN.Vanessa
