What is a mobile card machine?

Also known as a mobile card reader or a mobile PDQ machine, a mobile card machine is a completely wireless device that allows you to accept contactless and chip and PIN payments from your customers with ease. 

If you’re settling tables in your restaurant, cafe, pub or bar, you can take payments away from your till. If you collect payments on the road in your taxi, want to get paid for pampering people across the country, you’ll need a 3G/4G connection for that.

All Paymentsense mobile card machines come equipped with a SIM card, so you’re ready for the road from the get-go.

What’s the difference between a mobile and a portable card machine?


The only main difference between a mobile and portable card machine is that the mobile card machine doesn't rely on a stable Wi-Fi connection to process transactions. They’re ideal if you’re in and out of your business but want a handheld solution tailored to your guests’ experience.

If you’re taking payments outdoors in your garden or roof terrace, you can always count on the GPRS signal to reach your customers. And what if you want to accept payments at pop-up events or after fixing faulty boilers on the move? Whatever your trade, don’t rely on cash to get you paid.  

Mobile card readers are the ticket for traders, cabbies and anyone that does business on the move. They can use either 3G or 4G, so you’re always prepared.

The benefits of mobile card machines

They’re great for your customers

Mobile card machines mean customers no longer have to queue in one place to settle up. They can tap from the comfort of their table in your restaurant, bar or cafe. And what’s more, they’re secure and speedy too.

They could save you time and money

Say goodbye to wrong-changing customers and losing profits from miskeying errors. Integrate your mobile card reader with your till, and you’ll never have to manually input transaction totals into the machine again –Enabling you to serve customers faster and with more precision. 

They’re reliable 

In 2021 you can’t rely on cash to get paid. There are currently 13.7 million people in the UK alone living a ‘cashless life’ opting for a digital wallet or contactless card instead. And you can’t always rely on a stable Wi-Fi to get paid either. So even if you’re not out on the road, a mobile PDQ machine offers you a backup plan if you’ve got an unstable connection. A simple switch to 3G/4G, and you’ll be paid in a flash.

They sync with your sales tools 

Already set up with a till? Don’t want to start from scratch and get to know unwieldy new tech? Paymentsense partners with over 600 EPOS and POS providers so we can sync your preexisting sales tools with your shiny new card machines so they work in harmony. Find out more about integration here.

This depends on how you run your business. If you need to take payments at your till then a countertop machine is ideal. If you need to take payments at the table or at other locations inside your business then a portable card machine works best. And if you run your business on the go then a mobile card machine will keep your business moving all day long.

All our card machines come with the latest technology, like contactless, Apple Pay and Google Pay – we’ll tap into whatever comes along. And you’ll be able to take every type of debit and credit card with ease. American Express? Absolutely? Visa or Mastercard? Of course. Diners Club? It’s just a tap away.

To connect your card machine to your till, you’ll need something called integrated payments. It’s a simple way for your card machine and your till to talk to each other using secure, cloud-based software. It saves time, there’s less chance of mistakes and it makes cashing up at the end of the day a breeze. Need more convincing? We’re the only ones to not charge you extra for this essential card payments service.
