How do I choose a card machine for my business?

At the till, serving tables, or behind the bar, our card machines are designed with small businesses in mind. Depending on how you need to accept card payments we’ll provide you with the best fit for your customers – so you can spend less time worrying about payments and more time getting paid.

If you need a countertop card machine for till side payments in your retail store or cafe, we’ve got fixed card machines that use an Ethernet cable and your internet connection for speedy transactions in one place. 

If you’re looking for something more agile, to accept payments around your business premises, you’ll need a portable card machine. They’re ideal for restaurants, pubs, bars and hair and beauty salons that want to take payments to their customers, inside and outdoors. 

Need to take payments on the move? If you’re a taxi driver, plumber, electrician or sell coffee from a van, you can’t always rely on a steady Wi-Fi connection. So opt for a mobile card machine with an activated SIM card. That way you can get paid no matter where you go.

How much does a card machine cost?

The cost of your card machine rental depends on which model you opt for – countertop, portable, or mobile. Whichever one you choose we’ll get you set up within three days of signup for no additional cost. 

We can even integrate your card machine with your till for no additional cost. You can learn more about the EPOS providers we partner with here. 

When it comes to trading, no two small businesses are the same. So, why should their rates be? We’ll work with you to get you the best rates by asking you a few questions – your predicted annual card turnover and the types of card payments you need to accept. 

From then, we can tailor your rates and find you the best deal.

What’s the difference between a card machine and a card reader?

If you’re new to card payments, you may be wondering what the difference between card readers and card machines is. 

Similarly to chip and PIN machines or PDQ machines, a card reader is just another word for the device business owners use to accept face-to-face credit and debit card payments. 

Often card readers are smaller than card machines, however, the overall functionality remains the same. 

Customers can insert their card to enter their PIN, tap their card for transactions totalling £45, or under or tap their contactless device (Phone or watch) to pay with their digital wallet (Apple, Google and Samsung Pay).   

Our card machines come ready to accept all major debit and credit cards including Visa, Mastercard, American Express and the Discover Global Network.

And best of all, we’ll make taking payments simple. With 24/7 customer support from our experts, we’ll be on hand to support you every step of the way.

All of our card machines are built with end-to-end encryption to protect your customers’ card data from fraud. This level of protection is in line with PCI compliance too.

PCI compliance is short for PCI DSS compliance. 

It stands for the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard and it refers to a set of security protocols that credit card processors and any business that takes card payments is required to follow. 

The process of compliance can be a little confusing and lengthy for businesses that are unfamiliar. But don’t worry, we can support you with the process over the phone with our PCI phone validation service.

Yes. It’s called integrated payments and it allows you to sync your card machines with your till using our Connect cloud technology. 

This means that if you’re using a countertop card machine, the transaction amount is pushed from the till to the machine so you don’t have to double-key. 

And if you’re using a portable or mobile card machine to settle tables at your restaurant, you’ll no longer need to pace back and forth between table and till. Diners can split the bill or settle in full straight from the table.

You can accept all major debit and credit card networks including Visa, Mastercard, American Express and even the Discover Global Network should you wish to. 

All card machines are contactless-enabled so customers can tap for transactions £45 or lower. Anything above this amount, they can use their contactless digital wallet with Apple or Google Pay.

When choosing your card machine, it’s best to figure out how you want your customers to use it.

If it will stay fixed in one place in your retail store or cafe a countertop card machine is fit for the job.

If your customers need to pay at their table in your restaurant, pub or bar then you’ll need a portable card machine that connects to your WiFi. 

And if you’re fixing boilers from home to home, or taking weary travellers from A-B in your cab, you’ll need to go mobile with a SIM-enabled card machine.

We’ll calculate your transaction rates based on your average annual card turnover and the types of cards you want to accept. Don’t worry if this sounds complicated, once you’ve filled out your quote form, our team will call you back and explain everything in full detail. We’ll work with you to get the best rates for your business.
