How to start accepting cards
There are two stages that allow you to accept card payment. The first is to set up a Merchant Account which processes the customers’ card payment and transfers the money direct to your business bank account. We set this account up for you free of charge. You can find out more about merchant card processing HERE.
The second stage is to set you up with a card machine to suit your business requirements, advice for which will be provided by our team when you make an enquiry. You can see our range of card machines HERE. All our machines come with a warranty and support is provided by our in-house technical team should you encounter any problem.
