The contributions I get have increased significantly. More people than ever tap to donate whilst I sing. And often when one person does, another follows! If street performers like me don’t adapt to the cashless society, we risk becoming a dying art.

A safer way to pay

Our contactless card reader was developed in-house by a team of design, tech and security experts. That’s why it looks great, works brilliantly and fulfils the highest security requirements and industry standards there are.

By removing the magstripe and adding standout features such as transaction protection, payment data encryption and a tamper-proof design we’ve made it one of the most well-protected payment machines on the market.

Or log in and order if you already have an iZettle account

Thanks to iZettle, we can take hassle-free payments anywhere - in our créperie or when we’re out and about. iZettle gives us advantage over fellow traders and helps increase sales since customers sometimes are cashless. It’s awesome to be able to accept both credit cards and contactless payments!
