Paying by card is the favourite way to pay in the UK. In fact, around 16.3 billion credit and debit card payments were made in 2017 alone.

That’s why it’s important to consider accepting credit card payments and debit card payments. You could be missing out on sales if not!

You’ll be able to offer your customers more ways to pay, whether that’s in face to face, online or over the phone.
