How does takepayments work?

We like to do things differently. Rather than offer a one-sized fits all approach, we create a personalised package that’s just right for you.

Whether you’re new to card payments or are looking to switch providers, we make getting set up simple.

One of our expert payment consultants will come and visit you at your premises and really get to know your business.

They’ll recommend the right card machine solution for you and create you a pricing plan to help you get the best deal.

Yes. As well as accepting credit and debit cards using chip and PIN, all of our card machines accept contactless payments.

To accept contactless, your customer just needs to tap their card against the machine. Easy!

They can pay for items up to the value of £30.

Yes, you will.

All of our card machines are also enabled to take Samsung Pay and Google Pay (formally Android Pay) too.

Countertop card machines operate from a fixed place, so you plug them into your broadband or telephone line.

You’ll also need to plug it into an electrical socket.

They’re quick and simple to set up and our support team are on hand to help if you need them.

When you first plug it in, it’ll give you on-screen step-by-step instructions, so you can get up and running taking card payments in no time.

We only work with SMEs. This could be anything from independent cafes, to hairdressers, to freelancers and everything in between!

You’ll be able to accept all major credit and debit cards, including Mastercard, Visa, American Express and Maestro.

We can help you decide – our local card payments specialist will come and meet you at your business, and they can take you through the different options available.

Countertop card machines are perfect if you service customers from a fixed point of sale in your premises, such as a till.

If you want to serve people around your premises, such as at a table, a portable card machine may be more suitable.

And if you want to be able to take payments when travelling to see your customers, a mobile card machine may be best.

We make it easy.
