How do mobile card machines work?

A mobile card machine lets you take payments from customers there and then, face to face. No more relying on invoices or cash. 

It uses 4G to connect to the strongest GPRS signal available through a SIM card, just like your mobile phone does.

That means that you can accept credit and debit cards anytime, anywhere in the UK, helping make things easier for you.

Mobile card machines are also perfect for hospitality businesses serving customers outside, whether that's in your garden or allocated seating area on the pavement.

Plus, our mobile card machines come equipped with contactless payments so you can serve more customers quickly.

Is a mobile card machine right for your business?

We'll help you decide. One of our local payment consultants will come to your business to meet you to get a really good understanding of how it works. 

They’ll look at how you currently process payments, your turnover and what you want out of a card payment solution.

They’ll then be able to help you decide whether a mobile card payment machine is right (if it’s not, we have plenty of other options!).

Based on this information, they’ll then create a personalised mobile card machine pricing package that works for you.

It's so simple to take card payments. As we're on the top of a hill in the countryside, I was worried the card machine would fail, but the mobile machine works perfectly!

How does a mobile card machine work?

The machine comes in two parts:

  1. A charging base that you can leave at home or in the office when you’re out and about (it also comes with a micro USB which you can plug into your car to charge if you need a boost).
  2. The card machine itself.

The machine comes with a SIM card, and will connect to the strongest GPRS signal available (Vodaphone, O2, and T Mobile) through 4G. This means you can process payments anywhere you have a signal.

All of our mobile card machines come set up to accept all major credit and debit cards. This includes Visa, Mastercard, Maestro and American Express.

Yes, they are.

Our machines use chip and PIN technology to process payments. This means the customer puts their card in and enters their PIN number to make a payment.

They all also have PCI security features to help protect both you and your customers’ data.

Yes, you will. All of our machines accept contactless payments up to £100.

Rather than putting their card in and entering their PIN, the customer can just tap the card against the machine to pay and that's it.

Yes, they do. The machines are set up to accept Apple Pay, Android Pay (also called Google Pay) and Samsung Pay as standard.

Terms and conditions apply. 

Businesses will be required to enter into and maintain a separate contract with an acquiring bank nominated by takepayments for the processing of the card transactions. Under the contract with the acquiring bank, transaction charges and other fees will apply.

*This service is available to takepayments Limited customers who are accepted for Barclaycard acquiring services and is subject to Barclaycard’s approval. Next day settlement refers to the next banking day. Your card machine’s banking window function must be performed before 8:30pm in order to receive settlement the next banking day. Transactions processed via Ecommerce pay pages, pay by link and virtual terminals may be subject to different settlement timescales.
