Card readers – A simpler, faster, safer way to receive payments. Why choose iZettle?

Are you a business owner? Are you looking to upgrade to a simple, easy to use card payment system but have no idea which one to choose? The point of sale market can be overwhelming and somewhat confusing. But it doesn’t have to be.

Although different in many ways, every small business has one thing in common: they all need to get paid. With the number of payments made on cards constantly on the increase, not accepting card payments is not an option. Why feel overwhelmed with the countless number of payment receiving options out there? There’s no need to compromise on safety, speed and reliability. Let’s look at your solution, the iZettle card reader with its free Point of Sale App.

5 Reasons why the iZettle Card Reader is essential for your business.

Accepts a large range of cards including contactless, Apple Pay and Android Pay.

According to the UK cards association, in May 2017 alone there were 1.2 billion debit card purchases made, worth a massive £46 billion. With increasing numbers of transactions and the number of debit cards which are contactless at 73%, a diverse, widely accepting card reader is essential for any business.

The iZettle accepts the following cards:
