Café payment system

Whether grabbing a quick coffee on-the-go in the morning, or relaxing in the afternoon over a latte, the last thing customers want is to mess around with notes or counting change.

A café payment system should make paying for tea, coffee or a slice of cake as easy as possible.

Order. Tap. Go.


Card payments in pubs have become the norm.


The best credit card processing solution for cafés can make all the difference to your business.

No more busy queues. Just more time serving customers, making as much profit as possible.

“Handepay enabled my café to start taking card payments at a great price.”

Diana Sutherland, Harbour Way

Make your pub’s card payments more cost effective for you

Have you started taking card payments at your pub and then suddenly started paying extra fees you weren’t expecting?

Suddenly finding the cost of taking card payments is outweighing the benefits of taking card payments in the first place?

That’s because some card machine providers hide extra fees to get you to sign up.

At Handepay, you’ll always know exactly what you’ll be paying with us before you sign anything.

Plus, because we keep our prices competitive at all times, no matter the length of your contract with us, you’ll always be getting the best possible price.



Don’t just take our word for it.

Owners of The Lane



“Our local Business Development Manager made an appointment with us to look over a recent bill. When he explained the Handepay Price Challenge to us, we quickly emailed our statements to be analysed, and were thrilled to discover that our total monthly saving totalled £104.22.

Saving over £1,200 per year on card processing fees has allowed us to invest more money growing our business. In my opinion, taking the Handepay Price Challenge is a definite must for all business owners.”

Chris Vidler, The Lane


Pam Kaur owner of The Locomotive



“We were thrilled when we found out that we could save £161 per month by switching to Handepay, however we were concerned about the high cost involved with cancelling our previous contract.

We were surprised when our Handepay business development manager told us that we were eligible for the Handepay Easy Switch service, and would receive £1,270.51 to cover our cancellation fees.”

A better way to accept credit card payments for cafés

Paying for tea or coffee should be as easy and straightforward as drinking it.

Give your customers more time to catch-up and chat with friends, and less wasted time counting cash to pay for their drinks.

Plus, free your own time up to restock your cafè, serve more customers and make more money.

When you’re dealing with food and drink, hygiene is always a major consideration. Contactless payment machines make for a much more hygienic transaction.


“I’m so glad that I switched to Handepay, not only have I made amazing savings on our card readers but it’s improved the day to day running of my business.”

Ian Ritchie, Muffins Tea Rooms and Restaurant


“I was surprised when I found out I could save almost £100 each month, an overall saving of 23%. Over the length of the credit card reader contract, we’ll save just under £5,000. What’s more, Handepay even offered to give me £150 to cover the exit fees from my previous provider.”

Andrea Murdock, Hotel Commodore
