Card payment terminals allow you to offer your customers a fast, secure, convenient payment system – exactly what your customers would expect. But your merchant services package has got to work for your business as well as your customers, otherwise, in the long run, it won’t work for either of you! If you think you’re paying too much for merchant services, it could be time to look for a cheaper option.
What kind of business are these card payment machines for?
SavingSmart is offering merchant services to the retail and hospitality industries at very competitive rates. Many of our merchant services clients run bars, pubs and restaurants with several pay points, and we also provide card terminals to high street shops. We can supply as many terminals as you need, so your staff and customers will avoid the inconvenience of a “cash only” till. We are also working with a number of hairdressing franchises who already procure their energy through SavingSmart. While we love working with our established energy clients, you don’t have to be one to procure your card payment machines through us.
How much does the card payment machine cost?
Our merchant services clients hire one or more card terminals from us, paying a fixed monthly fee which depends on the terminal you choose to meet your business needs. Transaction rates to process all card payments, including American Express, are also fixed at the start of your contract. Our terminals are PCI compliant and you can choose from counter-top or portable machines, wifi and GPRS.
Our WIFI is a bit slow. Will the card payment machine still work?
Yes! We are aware of this problem, so we can offer you card payment machines which switch automatically to GPRS if WIFI is unavailable, meaning that they can still process the payment quickly.
My business takes infrequent card payments. Is a monthly contract right for me?
If you have a low card turnover, take infrequent card payments and want to transact while you’re out and about, SavingSmart offers another kind of card terminal – a card reader – that is suitable for micro businesses and sole traders. It connects to your smartphone via Bluetooth and the payment is taken via a free app. Just a one-off payment of £19+VAT to buy the reader and a competitive transaction rate for all cards. If you don’t use it for a week or two, it costs nothing as there’s no contract! Click here to find out more and order on-line – it’s really easy to do and takes just five minutes.
