See what our customers are saying

New to card payments? No problem.

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.

What does it cost to take card payments?

Because no two businesses are the same we don’t believe taking a ‘one size fits all’ approach.

We’ll take the time to understand your business, and the type of card payments you’ll be taking, so that we can give you a personalised quote.

Your card processing fees are charged per transaction and based on card types (debit and credit) and card turnover.

If you choose to have a card machine, you’ll pay a small monthly rental fee. The amount will depend on how many machines you use. 

We’ll then set you up with card payments free of charge and make everything easy to understand on your monthly bill. 

As you may have noticed, we’re big fans of keeping things clear and simple.
