In association with


Take payments to your customers.

If you work in a busy business, you don’t want to be stuck behind your till all day. You want to be out on the shop floor with your customers.

And with a portable card machine, you can be.

Using wireless Bluetooth technology, you can take payments at the table, or along the bar, without any wires getting in the way, speeding things up.

Plus, with a 50m range, you can also take payments from outside, whether that's in your garden or allocated pavement area. 

One of our expert payment consultants will pop into your business for a visit to find out more about how you work.

They’ll then create you a super-simple pricing package that’s just right for you. We don’t do one size fits all.

IWL252 Portable Machine

Portable card machine features.

50m range via Bluetooth

You can use the handset within 50m of the base, which speak to each other through Bluetooth.

Small and lightweight

It's lightweight enough that you can hand it to your customers to make a payment.

Easy to set up

It comes with a quick, step-by-step installation guide so you'll be up and running in no time.

Long lasting battery

You won't need to charge it every time you need to use it. A full battery should last all day.

Contactless enabled

The machine accepts chip and PIN payments, as well as contactless, Apple Pay and Android Pay too.

IWL252 Portable Machine

Is a portable card machine right for your business?

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

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

Based on the information you provide, 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!).

From this, they can then create a personalised portable card machine pricing package that's right for you.

See how it's benefited Amber and Jenny.

Taking card payments is really important. It's made things more streamlined, easier and it's simple. So many people don't have cash, so to come to a tiny village and have that accessibility is great.

Frequently asked questions.

What types of payments can I take?

You’ll be able to accept everything you’d expect, like all the major credit and debit cards (Mastercard, Visa, Maestro and American Express).

You’ll also be able to accept contactless payments, as well as Apple Pay, Samsung Pay and Google Pay (also known as Android Pay).

The machines work via Bluetooth, which is a wireless technology. As long as you’re within 50 metres of the charging base, you’ll be able to use the handset to take a payment.

The handset will read the data from the customer’s credit or debit card and then transfer it securely to our acquiring partner, such as Barclaycard, to process.

Once approved, the money will be in your business bank account within 3 to 5 business days.

There are two versions available, one that plugs directly into your phoneline or broadband, or one that connects via WiFi.

Both still use Bluetooth, so you can choose the one that's best suited for your business.

The machine comes in two parts. A charging base and separate handset, which will need to be plugged into the mains power.

You can sit the handset in the base when you’re not using it to charge, or charge it overnight – whichever works for you!

If you want to take payments to your customers, rather than them having to queue up at the till, it's a great option.

Businesses who commonly use them include cafes, coffee shops, restaurants and bars, although they are useful in many other businesses too.

One of our card payment specialists will come and meet you to find out how you want to use a card machine and recommend whether it’s a portable one you need, or a different type.

They’ll be able to create you a personalised pricing package based on your needs.

We specialise in helping small and medium-sized businesses in the UK. That could be a restaurant, dry cleaner, café, hairdresser, or anything in-between.

We make it easy.
