Beauty by Kathryn, a salon based in Abram, has just celebrated its first year in business. They provide a wide range of treatments, offering everything from traditional nail and beauty services to semi-permanent eyebrows.

Salon manager Stacey Hughes was visited by a Handepay advisor, who was able to save the company over £85 per month.

“I was skeptical when I first heard about the Handepay Price Challenge, however it seemed simple so I gave it a go. I can’t believe that we managed to reduce our fees by over 50%; saving £1000 a year is always great news for a business!

I would never have considered switching merchant account providers before I heard about Handepay, I didn’t know there were other options available to us. The company would definitely suffer if we didn’t have a card machine, as half of our customers choose to pay by card.

The switching process was so straightforward, there was no disruption to business and our staff barely noticed the difference. The money we’ve saved on by changing merchant account providers is going to go back into the business, helping us to pay for another apprentice later on this year.”
