Singh’s Food & Wine is a licenced convenience store and off licence based on Fox Hill Road, Sheffield.

Having been in business since 1986, co-owner Simrun Badh understands the importance of finding a first-class card payment provider and explains why he decided to switch and get a new credit card machine from Handepay.

“After seeing a comparison and the potential savings I could make by switching to Handepay, the results spoke for themselves. I am now saving over £700 a year with my new credit card machine!

The contactless card machine is portable and much easier to use, it’s faster and more efficient which saves time for customers who previously had to wait during busy periods."

Simrun considers accepting card payments as a crucial component for independent businesses. “Living in a world with advanced payments technology, people expect quick and efficient service, so it’s important for my customers to have this option. Around 25% of my sales come from card payments and this is increasing.

One of the best features of my new credit card machine is the contactless technology. This has been a hit with both my customers and staff as it literally takes seconds to process a card payment.

My local accredited advisor was friendly and gave great advice with no pressure. Switching to Handepay and setting up the card machine was a breeze and I now actually enjoy taking payments by card! I would definitely recommend Handepay to all independent businesses.”
