Handepay, the leading card payments solutions provider and part of the PayPoint Group, is supporting the launch of a brand new one-month rolling contract – this unique product is designed to offer customers around the UK a simpler, more flexible service.

The contract is immediately available to all customers switching their card machine from another provider and will initially run from October for a trial period. Whether a business takes card payments face to face, online or over the phone, Handepay’s safe, simple and hassle-free switching service offers:

  • Cover of any switching fees from an existing provider in almost all cases
  • Contactless payments including Apple Pay, Google Pay & Samsung Pay
  • Improved cash flow and getting your money the next banking day through the Accelerated Settlement Service
  • No minimum monthly service charge
  • No fees for PCI DSS compliance or non-compliance
  • Access to a Free Business Resource Centre

In parallel to the one-month rolling contract launch, Handepay is also supporting the offer of a 12-month contract to any customers new to card payments that sign up to the service. Previously only available on a 48-month contract, this new contract will provide budding businesses looking to expand their revenue streams all the benefits of Handepay without the long-term commitment.

Mark Latham, Card Services Director at PayPoint commented: “Handepay have long been a champion of small businesses across the UK, and this has become even more important as they continue to recover from the pandemic. The new one-month rolling contract is designed to give more flexibility, control and value to customers to help them continue to grow as the economy bounces back.

“Similarly, the 12-month flexible contract, for businesses signing up to card payments for the first time, signifies our commitment to continually evolve Handepay to meet the most urgent needs of its customers, offering the best service and support they require to drive efficiencies in their cashflow and revenue capture.”
