What are the benefits of a credit card reader?

More and more people are paying by card these days, and expect to be able to pay on card when they’re out and about. So if you don’t accept them, you could be losing out on potential sales.

It’s also a quicker, and more secure way to take payment than cash, and could help reduce cash handling and increase customer spend in your business.

Which is the best type of card reader for your business?

We like to do things differently at Payzone and don’t offer a one size fits all product.

Instead, a local card payment specialist will visit your business and get a good understanding of what you need, face to face.

They can then advise which is the best card reader for your business and provide a personalised pricing package to suit your needs.

We offer a number of different card readers:

Countertop card readers are great if you work from a fixed premises as the reader will sit atop your till point or reception area, taking up minimal space on the counter.

Portable card readers are perfect if you want to move around your premises to take payments, for example, taking payments at a table if you're a cafe or restaurant.

Mobile card readers allow you to take card payments on the go, anywhere in the UK that has a mobile network connection. They're ideal if you work on the road.
