About our card machines

Our Ingenico card payment terminals are quick, reliable and accept all major credit and debit cards including Visa, Mastercard and American Express.

They are also equipped with the latest PCI DSS security to protect both you and your customers details. Our card machines use Chip & PIN technology to enable secure payment transactions.

All of our terminals also come with contactless payments, Apple Pay and Android Pay as standard - allowing your customers speed and flexibility when they come to pay.

If your customer doesn’t know their PIN number or the Chip is damaged, there is also a magnetic stripe option which can be used to process the transaction.

What are the benefits of taking card payments?

Paying by card is becoming the UK’s most popular payment method and according to the BRC, accounted for 43% of all transactions in in 2017, overtaking cash payments for the first time in the UK.

This is why having the option to process credit and debit card transactions for customers has become increasingly important.

By having a credit card machine, you’ll be able to offer alternative ways to pay using Chip & PIN, contactless, Apple Pay and Android Pay.

You could also benefit from reduced cash handling, plus your customers may be more likely to impulse buy.

Card machine FAQs

  • Why should I get a card machine?

    Over the past few years, the total of card payments made within the UK has quickly overtaken cash payments, which is why it’s becoming key for businesses to own a debit and credit card machine. By having a card terminal, you’ll be able to accept all major credit and debit cards, including Visa, Mastercard and Amex, and also take contactless payments - making life easy for your customers.

  • What type of machine is best for my business?

    We understand that every business works differently, which is why we have a selection of card terminals for you to choose from:

    Countertop - the machine has a small design, allowing it to sit next to your till on your countertop without taking up too much space. This machine needs to be plugged into a power source, and can be connected to either your phone line or broadband. Ideal for businesses who work from a fixed premise and need to process transactions in one place including retailers and independent shops.

    Portable - this machine comes with a handheld card reader and a base unit. The base unit plugs into a power source and can be placed on a countertop or desk. The device is Bluetooth-enabled which allows it to connect to the base. The reader can process transactions up to 50m away from the base unit, allowing you to take payments from customers around the shop floor. This solution is perfect for cafes, restaurants, pubs and bars.

    Mobile - this machine is GPRS-enabled and connects to the strongest mobile network connection in the area. It comes with a base unit which can be connected to either a plug or your vehicle using a micro-USB cable. When you’re done using the handheld device, simply leave it on the base unit and it’ll charge - ready for when you next need it. The perfect solution for mobile businesses such as mobile beauticians, tradesmen, delivery businesses and pop-up shops.

  • Will I be able to set it up myself?

    We like to keep things simple, which is why all our credit card machines are easy to install yourself.

    Should you need any assistance, our dedicated activation team is on-hand to help.

    Please call 01472 255 750 to speak to our activation team.

  • Can I take contactless card payments through a card machine?

    All of our card payment machines are equipped to take contactless payments on sales up to the value of £30.

    Not only that, our terminals can also accept Apple Pay and Android Pay payments through your customers’ smartphone and other devices.

  • What types of cards can the card machines accept?

    Our terminals accept all major credit and debit cards including Visa, MasterCard, Maestro and American Express.

  • How much do card machines cost?

    The cost of a card machine will depend on the type of business you own, your turnover and the type you choose.

    We provide straightforward and flexible pricing, and there are no hidden fees when you join.

    Once you’ve picked the right machine for you, you’ll pay a rental fee for the terminal every month, as well as an authorisation fee (acquirer charge) and merchant service charge (transaction fee).

    The processing charges will depend on the types of card payments you take, for example, debit cards usually have a different transaction fee to credit cards. If you don’t meet the agreed monthly fee, you will be charged a minimum monthly service charge instead.

    You will also need to pay PCI DSS compliance fees to make sure you’re PCI DSS compliant.

    While other businesses use a one size fits all solution, here at Payzone, we create a pricing package to suit your business' needs.

    A local card payment specialist will meet with you face to face and will have expert, local business knowledge to help you choose which card machine is right for you.

    Your package will cover any transaction and authorisation fees, and you will also agree a minimum monthly service charge. These rates are tailored to you, based on the volume of card transactions your business makes or will be making in the future.
