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.
