Mobile card machine FAQs

  • Why take card payments through a mobile card reader?

    With a mobile card reader, not only will you be offering your customers more ways to pay, you won’t be confined to taking payments only within a fixed premise.

    Through 3G, the mobile card machine connects to the strongest mobile signal available, meaning you can take payments wherever your work takes you.

    Card payments continue to be on the rise and customers’ expectations are changing. In 2017, 34.6 billion payments were made on cards by UK consumers.

    Nearly 85% of consumer payments were a spontaneous purchase, rather than a regular standing payment, like bills for example.

    With key developments in technology changing the way people pay; such as smartphones, online banking and contactless payments, now is the perfect time for businesses to start taking advantage of accepting cards.

  • Are mobile card payments secure?

    You’ll be able to accept credit cards and debit cards safely and securely when using a mobile card payment machine.

    For Chip & PIN transactions, your customers will need to verify the transaction using their PIN code. This allows the machine to automatically run security checks to ensure the cardholders details are correct and help prevent card fraud.

    Contactless payments are capped at £30 per transaction to help avoid large payments being made.

    For any business that accepts card payments, you’ll need to be PCI DSS compliant. PCI DSS compliance is the standard requirement to help prevent card payment fraud, and by being compliant, it ensures your business has the minimum level of card data security.

    Protecting you and your customers data when it comes to payment processing. If you’re not already PCI compliant, we can help.

    We have a dedicated PCI team who will be able to hand hold you through the process and help get you set up to accept safe and secure payments.

    Payzone are also regulated by the Financial Conduct Authority for consumer hire.

  • How much does a mobile card reader cost?

    The costs for card readers depends on a number of factors, including what type of business you own, your business turnover and the type of card machine you choose.

    You can expect to pay a monthly rental fee for your card machine as well as a merchant service charge (transaction fee) and authorisation fee (acquirer charge).

    Your processing charges will be dependent on the types of card payments you take, for example, debit cards may have a different transaction fee to credit cards.

    If you don’t meet the agreed fee, a minimum monthly service charge will apply instead. To ensure you’re PCI DSS compliant, you’ll also need to pay PCI DSS compliance fees.

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

    One of our local payment specialists will come out and meet you face to face. They’ll bring with them a wealth of local business knowledge and work with you to find the best payment solution to suit you and your business needs.

    The package you sign up to will cover any transaction fees and authorisation fees, and you’ll agree a minimum monthly service charge.

    We tailor these rates based on the volume of card transactions your business makes or will be making. We also don’t charge you set up fees when you join or exit fees if you choose to leave at the end of your contract.
