let me guess, when you walk into a national retailer you ask for discount because you didn't order it online and you saved them the shipping and handling costs?

Don't the traditional merchant providers like Global Payments work out to be better value? Typically offer £20/month terminal fee with transaction fees at 0.3% for debit and 0.8% for credit cards. If one is a small business selling items at a larger cost, then surely these 1.75% iZettle transaction fees will hit your bottom line, no?
It all depends on your sales. My business is mostly cash, but I do offer card payment facilities. I zettle works well for me at the moment.
I have one of these they are excellent devices.

yes but unless you know/forecast the value and number of transactions you can't really be sure of best deal.These are good for starting up if you want to test waters or for occasional use. Low outlay and no commitment.
The bigger providers usually tie you into a contract.

There's a few websites that will compare the market for you and tell you the most suitable.You just enter in your monthly revenue, how much is received by card, of which how much is debit/credit card split and also number of transactions and average transaction value. Easily done if you already take card and are looking to switch.

Of course - one needs to crunch the numbers. However, as I've stated, if you're a business that does large value transactions, then other providers will be cheaper.

Its a great little machine, quick payments and compared to large card processing companies its very competitive.. I worked out needed to take over £1500 in sales before a proper card processing merchant starts to be cost effective.

£1.5k per month?
This is good value for anyone taking approx £2000 per month as usual pdq machines cost in the region of £35/40 excluding vat you use it or you don’t. They charge terminal fees off £20 and also minimum transaction costs of £15-20 so they merchant who deals with money handling takes a fixed cut of between £15-20. 2000*£1.75% =£35 plus it lets you take it anywhere if you do deliveries

I don't understand this post!
I’ve ordered a pair when the exact deal was posted last month. Used them already and no further fees were charged apart from the 1.75% advertised so overall a good PAYG device.

Because retailers have to pay 1.75% card surcharge payment to iZettle for all card payments, @Footsore is trying to be cheeky here & saying maybe they should give their cash paying customers 1.75% discount for saving the retailers 1.75% card surcharge fee by paying cash?
I just set up an account but it's coming up as £29 + VAT when getting to ordering the reader.
Might be a dud offer

Internal battery. Charge it with any micro USB charger.
I ordered one yesterday and it's getting delivered today, a quick question is there a minimum amount these can accept? for example if I only use it once a month for a £6 transaction because 99% of my business takings are cash (Hackney taxi driver) but occasionally I get a customer asking to pay by card.

Don't think that should be a problem. A lot of hackney drivers in my area are using this device nowadays.
Wasn't it £19 last month and the month before too? I have never seen it more than £19 whenever I have looked. Sounds like an inflated RRP to make people think they're getting a deal.

Will be interesting to see what price it is next month (maybe £19 for a change!?)

Having said that I voted this hot as I voted the original post a couple of months ago hot and it is quite a good deal (even if it is this price normally).
@paulandpam1
Minimum transaction is a quid

Wonder if Izettle plan to give us older loyal users 1.75% fee's too, I paid £60 for my reader and pay 2.75% fee.

Different companies will need different things, my friends a barber and has one of these, it’s perfect for him because 99% of his customers pay with cash. This is just there as a back up or for the occasional customer wanting to pay on card. But yes if you are selling high value items you’re better off with a traditional approach

Why did you phrase this as if someone has said something different?

Yes, this is for very small businesses with low sales volume. Nobody said otherwise.

I got my reader today and was wondering what is the situation with contactless payments and is it possible to not accept them? for instance if a customer uses a stolen or found debit / credit card to pay contactlesly will I loose out and get the payment withdrawn? I ask this because I work nights on the taxis and meet some very unsavoury characters who will try anything to rip me off.

I think (and this just my personal opinion) that you're protected by banks honouring those transactions. That's the reason max amount on contactless is limited to £30?
