Saved my family and friends a lot of hassle compared to getting cash out and putting it in a card. I also accepted direct bank transfers and paypal payments. I feel that offering more options gives you a better chance of getting more money.I could even let my 12 year old donate me some cash as a gift because this machine worked with their pre-paid card they got as a gift from their grandparents.


So your friends and 12 yo used to give you cash as a Christmas gift, but now you take card payments as well..!?

If you buy it and register as a ‘business account’ the annual transaction limit is high. On a private account, once a certain transaction limit is reached, the reader won’t accept further payments.

Reasonably sure it has not been possible to register as a "Private" user for about 3 years so will presumably not apply to a purchaser of this deal.
Izettle owned by PayPal now of course, wouldn't be surprised to see the fees creep up.

1.75% for now so hope it lasts for a while longer!

Yep, hope so, use it myself when desperate. Can't take cardholder not present either, have to send an invoice by email and that attracts 2.5%, it all adds up!

Overall this seems like a great way for low cost entry into card payments, but does it do apple pay / google pay as well?

I think these are great enablers in the economic sense. From farmer's market stalls to the handyman doing odd jobs. Obviously everyone in smaller markets prefers cash but people are swiftly moving to holding less of it on their person in favor of card and phone. And that means sometimes no sale is made AT ALL if you cant accept non-cash. My favorite use case is that I saw a busker in the tube had one set up for donations - instead of loose change, you could just swipe your phone or card as ou hurried on by for a flat £1 donation. thats very useful i think, and there are other boxes around which do this for similar cases (charity donations...etc...).

Nice
Does that make any sense to buy it to have it. For example if I just sell something on gumtree once in a while and somebody who picks up the item can pay with card?

I don't think anyone who buys off Gumtree will want to use a card to make a payment. In fact, i steer clear from places like Gumtree or FB Marketplace. Majority are tyre-kickers.
A lot of taxi drivers use these now .
Do they get 2% fee taken from every transaction that is paid for by card ?
If so they would prefer cash than card payments ?

Yes that is correct.
What do you all do regarding PCI DSS? Do you fill in all the paperwork yourselves each year? If I remember correctly there’s like 4 times the amount of documents to fill on wireless terminals compared to standalone phone line operated units which was putting me off from switching.
MrBeansDrivingInstructor02/01/2020 13:42

Yes that is correct.


Thank you. Every now and then I've been asked to accept a credit card for payment and have used a PayPal invoice. This is a bit clunky and it always tries to make them log in and only a small link at the bottom for paying by card. This might be the answer.

izettle operator and device is compliant and the user/merchant does (may?) not require individual compliance if not taking distance payments (CNP). Happy to stand corrected if the merchant has compliance responsibility for CP transactions.

Don't forget CNP is more expensive than their standard rate so has even more of an impact on the bottom line.
Its very good if someone is doing under £1000 a year. It will cost about £17.50 but if someone is doing £100000 it creeps up to £1750 whereas you can easily get 0.29 on debit cards which is most used cards in most of industry and £1750 comes down to only £290 and terminal cost at about £210 a year still £1250 as compared to iZETTLE.

They would probably prefer cash but given less and less people carry cash it's probably better from them to have the reader than to lose the business to something like Uber which will take a card payment.
