Iain Jubbs, owner of The Treaty of Commerce, took over the business around a year ago and completely renovated the pub. It is one of the last remaining original pubs on the Lincoln high street. This is the second pub that Iain owns, he also runs award winning Lincoln pub the Dog and Bone.

A local business referred Iain to take the Handepay price challenge to see what savings he could make and he was thrilled to find he could save 41%.

“With my previous payment service provider I was tied into a long contract, plus they had set me up with two accounts. One account was set up to accept card transactions over the phone and I had been paying around £30 a week to have this facility that I never used!

Both of my businesses are now customers of Handepay, I like the fact that I wasn’t hassled by my advisor they were very patient and waited until I was ready to sign up.

Signing up and setting up the card machine was so easy, the whole process has gone very smoothly. Introducing card payments into my pubs has helped to significantly increase my profits, particularly contactless payments, as the popularity in this payment method has made a great difference to our footfall.

It’s still early days to fully notice the difference but I know that I am going to save around £1000 a year by switching my card payment service provider to Handepay. That’s money we can invest into the business.  

I can’t fault the overall service I’ve received from Handepay. I see a lot of sales people popping into the pub but my Handepay advisor was different, I instantly gelled with them.

I have already recommended Handepay to other local businesses. I meet with a lot of pub owners to discuss ways of making and saving more money, I always inform them about the savings they can make by taking the Handepay price challenge. An added bonus is I can be rewarded £50 for every successful referral I make.”
