Fast payments, no fuss
There are certain things you want from a card machine, and some you don’t. So to make it easier to choose the right one for you, look out for:
✓ A reader that will accept multiple types of secure payment, including chip and PIN, and contactless card or device payments like Apple, Samsung and Google Pay.
✓ A fast transaction time – your card reader should power up and process payments in seconds.
✓ Easy-to-use accompanying software that will run your card machine from your smartphone, tablet or desktop computer.
✓ Mobile/cable-free, lightweight, long battery life and a reliable connection to wifi or 3G/4G signal.
✓ No lock-in contracts, no expensive equipment rental fees and no hefty up-front payments.
