Card machines for small business

A simple, affordable way to accept card payments

For a small business owner, the key to increasing sales is accepting different types of payment. When you set up shop, cash is convenient — but as your customers keep on coming, they want new ways to pay. In the UK, card payments have doubled in the last ten years1 and the majority of retail purchases are now paid for by card. So, if you want to boost your bottom line, a card payment machine for your small business is the very best way.

In the past, card machines were expensive and complex to use, but with iZettle there is a better option. The iZettle Reader is a simple, affordable and totally mobile card machine for small business. Its wireless design and all-day battery mean you can bring it anywhere to take card payments, and next day deposits let you stay on top of your earnings. Simple!

We had no idea how much we would sell in the beginning, so we chose iZettle because we didn’t want to be stuck with high fixed costs.
