Keep your customers (and bottom line) happy by accepting card payments

It’s official cards have overtaken cash. In fact, 77% of total retail sales are now paid for by card and it’s estimated that by 2024, 16 billion card transactions will be taken a year. That’s a whopping £718bn*. So if you aren’t accepting cards, then you’re missing out. It’s that simple. We currently help 80,000 businesses take credit and debit card payments. And we can help you too.

New to card payments? No problem.

Accepting card payments is an easy and quick way to boost your business. It makes impulse buying easier, increases your customer base (especially if you’re creating an online shop) and means you won’t have to turn any cash-carrying customers away. Plus, it’ll mean you have less cash and cheques to deposit, so fewer bank fees. It’s win-win-win.

There are four ways you can take card payments; with a card machine, on the phone, via email or online using a payment gateway. Whichever you choose, we make it easy. First, we’ll set you up with a merchant account (everyone who accepts card payments has to have one). Then, depending on how you want to take payments, we’ll help you choose the right card machine, or set you up with an online payment gateway.

What does it cost to take card payments?

Because no business is the same, we don’t believe card processing fees should be the same. It’s common sense. So we’ll take the time to understand your business, and type of card payments you’ll be taking, before giving you exact costs. However, our rates are the best around, often 40% lower, thanks to our Strength in Numbers approach.

If you choose to have a card machine, you’ll pay a small monthly rental fee, but we don’t charge any set up fees and your bill will be easy to understand. As you may have noticed, we’re big fans of keeping things clear and simple.

Want to start accepting
card payments?

We hate to boast. So we let our customers do it.

They were easy to talk to and reassured me by breaking down everything I needed to know, from the merchant accounts to card processing.

Bob McCulloch
Tom Foolery Coffee Company

When I called them up they said they’d pay all my cancellation charges for me! Not only that, their charges were way less and would save me a bundle each year.

Simon White
Simon White Plumbing

The card machine is up and running, taking contactless payments which is what I was most worried about as it’s so in demand, as well as Chip and PIN.

Ffions Hair & Beauty Boutique

It took about three days once everything had gone through, the changeover was seamless, and I didn’t even notice the new card machine.

Gary Lee
Green Leevs Garden Centre

When I had an issue with one of the mobile card readers last year, Paymentsense sorted it and sent me a new one the next day, so I didn’t miss out on any jobs.
