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, including Apple Pay, Google Pay, and Samsung Pay.

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 £100.

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.

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