Adjacent to 250 acre Etherow Country Park, Compstall Garden Centre has been open in Stockport for over twenty years. It was taken over in 2008 by Maggie Smith, and stocks a wide variety of English grown plants and personalised hanging baskets, alongside a gift shop and café.

Maggie decided to shop around for a better deal on her card processing fees after receiving an unexpectedly large bill.

“In December I received my monthly statement from my previous supplier, with an added charge for PCI non-compliance. I decided that it was time to have a look around to find a better deal, and found out about the Handepay Price Challenge through an internet search.

I was intrigued when I discovered the Handepay Price Challenge, it seemed like a no-brainer as I would benefit either by saving money or receiving £500! Other companies said that they could save me money but they were nowhere near as competitive as Handepay. The Handepay Price Challenge was simple, all I had to do was email a merchant statement to their pricing team and they did a thorough analysis of my current fees. I was delighted to hear that I could make a 42% saving!

I liked the fact that Handepay sent out an engineer to install my new terminal and it’s far better! I can now accept contactless payments, and a lot of my customers are now asking to pay this way.

I now save over £300 per year by using Handepay’s card processing services, meaning that I can grow my business by investing these savings.”
