Worry-free security

We do the worrying so that you don't have to. The iZettle Reader fulfils the highest industry standards and security requirements there are, making it the most secure reader on the market.

Tamperproof design

We adhere to PCI PTS 4.1, the highest industry standard that ensures our credit card reader’s hardware and software is tamperproof. In fact, the reader self-destructs if someone tries to mess with it – now that’s secure.

Transaction protection

In the rare case that a customer disputes a charge, iZettle offers transaction protection that covers up to €250 in eligible chargebacks per month.

Safe encryption

All credit card data is encrypted according to the strictest standards to make sure your customers’ sensitive information is never compromised.

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!
