A portable card payment machine
to suit your needs


Without needing to be plugged in at all times, portable card terminals can be carried around the building - taking payments from anywhere provided you’re within range. If you’re considering portable card machine services for your business, we’re here to help you explore your options. There are no hidden fees when you sign up with Handepay - and if you’re switching from another provider,

we could even help you save money as you switch! 


A portable card machine is ideal for businesses with multiple points of sale, or for those that wish to take the card machine to the customer rather than direct them to a till. Think about a restaurant, for instance.

Portable card machines enable the customer to settle the bill right at the table. They don’t need to get up off their chair until they decide to leave. On the flip side, this enables the card machine operator to work efficiently, accepting payments ‘on the go’ as they multitask and serve other tables.

It’s a mutually beneficial way to accept card payments, improving service for the customer and efficiency for your business. Beyond restaurants however, portable card machines are suitable for a variety of other businesses.

Some of the more common ones include:


  • Butchers
  • Car Servicing / Sales
  • DIY Stores
  • Florists
  • Golf Clubs
  • Hair and Beauty
  • Wedding Services
  • Cafes / Wine Bars
  • Convenience Stores
  • Dry Cleaners
  • Funeral Directors
  • Guest Houses
  • Jewellers
  • Take Aways
