Having the capability to accept payments via card machines is becoming more essential for businesses operating in fixed locations.
UK Finance reports that approximately only one third of payments nowadays are made via cash, so if you’re not already accepting card payments - you could be in danger of being left behind.
Countertop card machines are an important asset for all kinds of businesses, and when you set up with Handepay - you won’t have to pay any hidden charges, such as:
NO minimum monthly service charge (MMSC)
NO PCI DSS compliance and non-compliance fees
NO authorisation fees
NO fees for online statements or Business Resource Centre
NO joining fees
Countertop card machines are exactly as their name suggests - card machines that sit on the countertop at the point of sale.
It’s your traditional face-to-face card payment method. The countertop card machine sits on the counter - so it takes up very little space.
You can imagine the types of businesses that use these types of machines. Typically, you’ll find that countertop machines are best adopted from fixed premises - one single location, where all card payments are made.
This could include:
• Accountants • Bridal Shops • Cafes • Chemists • Convenience Stores • Dry Cleaners • Gift Shops
• Jewellers • Opticians • Restaurants • Bed and Breakfasts • Butchers • Car Servicing / Sales
• Clothes Shops • Dentists • Florists • Hair and Beauty • Newsagents • Printers • Supermarkets
And many more...
