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