    Use Sign up for iZettle and start accepting card payments today it's only 2.75% and goes down the more you use it and you get a free card reader and you get £10 free if you make a transaction in the first 30 days! Worth a try it's free to sign up and get your card reader, it's worked a treat for me so far and I've seen people asking about card payments on here, the amount of customers who haven't got the money, boom pull this out your pocket, every one has a card and it's probably be cheaper the pence it costs for transaction then fuel back later to get the money and I just add £0.65 per transaction if they use card, so give or take it never really costs me anything and the customers happy

    No monthly fee, just 2.75 on top but I charge that to the customer if they want to pay by card, go through the link above and you get £10 free on your first sale too. Happy days

    Even if you order it and don't end up using it you don't have to pay nothing, and if you use the link above you get a £10 voucher if you use it once, happy days

    Yes you can.

    If I knew then what I know now I wouldnt have bothered with card payments as you still need to go on collections. We have been shifting everyone sucessfully to GoCardless and now when talking to new customers it isnthe only option we offer.
