4. april 2013
Adds Wireless Cash Drawer and Receipt Printer Functionality as well as Sales Overview Tools
STOCKHOLM – April 4th, 2013: Bakers to bricklayers. Milliners to maids. If they’re using iZettle to sell their products or services, the social payments company wants to make sure its customers have everything needed to take credit, debit, and cash transactions wherever they operate their business.
For iZettle users who need a cash drawer or an alternative to email receipts, the company’s Chip & Signature and new Chip & PIN card readers for iPhones and iPads can now wirelessly connect to Star Micronics’ range of MFi certified desktop and mobile printers.
“This competitive solution is perfect for small and growing businesses as well as the larger retailers who want to add the flexibility of mobile POS solutions to their POS infrastructure,” said Annette Tarlton, Marketing Director, Star Micronics EMEA. “Star’s range of printers provides the ideal printing solution given that Star has been the receipt printer manufacturer of choice for Apple for nearly a decade supplying its worldwide stores. With the expertise of iZettle and Star, retailers can be assured of a reliable, cost effective solution.”
In addition, iZettle has updated its free sales overview tools with easy-to-read graphs, sortable by year, month or week. The new metric boxes display revenue, top selling products, transactions, average payment volume and returning customers.
iZettle takes just minutes to set up, and works with all major cards. There’s no subscription, set up fee, monthly fee or minimum. Instead, iZettle merchants pay 2.75% of each transaction. iZettle then electronically deposits payments in the merchant’s bank account.
Sweden’s Financial Supervisory Authority regulates iZettle, whose services are EMV (Europay, MasterCard and Visa) approved and compliant with the PCI DSS (Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard).
“The new receipt printer and cash drawer functionality and sales overview tools address many frequent requests from our users,” said Jacob de Geer, co-founder and CEO of iZettle. “As we’re now adding 3,000 new users per day in seven countries across Europe – and are about to expand to new markets – it’s important for us to give them what they need to intelligently and affordably run their business.”
iZettle is available in the U.K., Germany, Sweden, Norway, Denmark, Finland and Spain. The company’s free app for accepting card payments is available for download from Apple’s App Store or Google Play.
