I will save up to £300 a year by switching through Handepay

Debbie opened Lola in Tarporley, Cheshire in March 2020 selling a range of unique items from the UK and Europe including cruelty free clothing, Jewellery, and accessories. Though Lola was originally open for just 11 days before the pandemic hit, Debbie’s business is booming.

Debbie didn’t see any reason to switch from her previous card payment provider at first. But it was by speaking to our business development manager, Julia, that changed Debbie’s mind.

“I was quite happy with the previous card payment provider, yet the handset and overall agreement through Handepay worked out cheaper. Julia came into the shop, and she was delightful, calm, and reassuring. Switching can be a bother with all the details required, but the admin was completed by Julia for the switch. She dealt with all of that, so it was straightforward and smooth running.”

Clothes displayed on shop rail“My shop sells unique brands many of which are exclusive to me in the UK. I sell all sort of garments include silks, cashmere, and ethically produced products. My collections are high end and therefore quite pricey so as a consequence, I seldom have any cash transactions.”

“As my boutique is very small, I don't need to do have a stock control element, I just need a card reader. But the Saturn Android Smart Terminal gives me more options than I had previously. The machine looks more sophisticated, and I can bring it with me to events as I’ve sold my products in venues and at festivals. I’ve even recommended the Saturn Android Smart Terminal to two of my fellow retailers in the village.”

“I also do my own accounts for the business, which means I can take the totals for the Friday and Saturday through the Saturn Android Smart Terminal and then import the sales. Now, I don't have to do a manual calculation on what I've taken at the end of day.”

“I will be saving up to £300 a year by switching through Handepay and using the Saturn Android Smart Terminal, which I was pleasantly surprised by. I also didn’t realise that I was on a rolling contract with my previous provider! But Handepay helped to cover my last contract fees and transferred me to a one month rolling contract, giving me freedom and peace of mind. Overall, I am very happy that I’ve moved and switched through Handepay.”*
