Card acceptance FAQs

  • Can I accept payments online?

    Yes you can. We have a number of online card payments solutions. 

    With a payment gateway you can add a checkout to your website, or you can send a pay by link email to your customers, where they can pay you online. A virtual terminal also lets you take phone payments by logging into an online payment processing page. Find out more here

  • Why should I take credit card payments?

    By accepting card payments, your customers will have the option to pay using their credit or debit card when making payment.

    According to the UK Cards Association, transnational activity on cards grew by 11.7% in the first quarter of 2017, which saw a massive 153 million more card purchases than in the fourth quarter of 2016. 

    Contactless spending has also seen an increase, with latest stats showing that over 988 million credit card transactions were made in the first quarter of 2017.

    With customers more willing to pay using their credit and debit card, it’s key to make sure you don’t miss out by not accepting card payments.

  • What do I need to accept cards?

    To get started taking card payments, you’ll need a verified merchant account set up for your business. At Payzone, we can help you get set up with one, allowing you to take card payments from your customers.

    If you’re looking to take payments using your website, you’ll also need to set up a payment gateway.

    When your online customers are ready to make payment, our payment gateway simply takes them to a secure web page linked to your merchant account for safe and secure payment.

  • Which cards can I take?

    Our card machines take all major credit and debit cards including Mastercard, Visa and Maestro. If you’d also like to accept American Express cards, you will need to apply directly through American Express to have this added onto your card machine.

    You’ll also be able to accept contactless, Apple pay and Android payments up to the value of £30 as standard.

  • What are the different card machines available?

    Countertop - these are perfect if you serve your customers from a fixed location in your business, like a till point or reception desk.

    Portable - these machines comes with a handheld card reader and a base unit, which speak to each other via Bluetooth. The reader can process transactions up to 50m away from the unit, so you are able to take payments from customers around your premises. It's ideal if you own a cafe, restaurant, pub or bar.

    Mobile - these are GPRS-enabled and will connect to the strongest mobile network connection in the area, so you can use it when you're out and about.

    It comes with a base unit which can be connected to either a plug or your vehicle using a micro-USB cable. It's a great solution if your business is mobile, such as for beauticians, tradesmen, delivery businesses or pop-up shops.
