Getting started with card payments

Simply being able to accept card payments will enable you to sell to more customers while reducing the amount of cash you keep on your premises.

Reasons to start taking card payments:

  • Your customers regularly ask to pay by card.
  • You’ve lost customers because they couldn’t pay on card
  • You would like to be able to take payments on the phone or online
  • You would like to keep less physical cash.

In November 2014 the average transaction value for credit and debit card payments was £46.75*, across retail and services.
