With only 1.95% regardless of how much you take over izettle 2.75% I'd rather go with SumUp
SumUp card reader is much lower quality than Izettle and the annoying paring system...so slow...Izettle is easier to use and quicker overall smooth experience. All my customers happy
I have the plug in model of izettle but is extremely slow even just to connect. (once the screen goes off it takes even longer to reconnect and that is regaress of Wi-Fi or 4g connection) maybe the contactless is much quicker.
I recently purchased the contactless reader from iZettle and it's excellent. Connection with my phone takes 2-3 seconds from powering on the reader.
I have two izette readers but have now gone over to Square

Just as quick and does 'customer not present' as well.

Plus lower rates and (I presume I can't post) does £1000 transactions fee free :-)
Shop around people. Worldpay recently offered a client of mine a flat rate of 20p+0.85%. Lowest I'd ever seen. Saved them thousands of pounds a year over their last provider.

They want your business, they will negotiate. Don't be sucked in by silly widgets and pay through the nose to settle transactions.

For what it's worth, some UK government agencies use Worldpay as their main payment provider, so probably quite reliable too!

One off, upfront terminal admin fee (£150 for standard terminal) applies from Worldplay.... special one off deals a bit like customer retention on mobile phones hard to get a repeat deal for all. This is a deal for all not special mates rates from suppliers.
Easy to get your 'fee' waived. I did, also got a £50 Amazon voucher too. My rates are now 0.80% for debit and 1.20% for credit cards. Started off with izeytle but a lot more expensive for us

​how did you get it waived?
You talk to them. Negotiate.

As I said, this is a market with so many providers that competition really does push prices down. WP were happy to waive terminal fees in my experience too, the client for 5 of them for a 12m deal. At a flat 0.85%, credit and debit, inc AMEX.

Don't think anyone looking at this would be dealing in 12m !. This is a deal for light users not those trying to get people to contact them for referrals which clearly some of these comments are aimed at.
I'm on Worldpay, online only as don't deal with customers face to face and am on 2.014% on credit cards and 0.37% on debit
Looks like I need to renegotiate

12 ​month! Admittedly their take is more than a few pence (around £750k) but that isn't perversely high for anyone selling stuff.

Take that with a pinch of salt. Government regs say they have to go to tender and use the cheapest provider.

What do they pay a month though? There's no monthly fees with iZettle. IZettle, sum up etc aimed at small businesses. I use mine once or twice a month, so worldpay etc are no good for me.

My original iZettle wireless reader broke 13 months after having it, only used it a handful of times, iZettle didn't care

Exactly the same for me, iZettle will be rarely used but is useful for me to have. For me it's the perfect contract free option.
Sorry only noticed the reply. No monthly, no minimum, just a 12 month period. They probably offer that deal because they see enough volume and a trustworthy business that's been running for 80 years, but they're not one-offs.

That's why I keep saying this. Negotiate!! I can't believe the apathy people here (of all places) have to throwing 1% of all their revenue away. That's what you're doing if you settle for izettle. It's not convenient, it's expensive.
My dad pays 0.41% through worldpay. Although that's a negotiated deal for all Spar shops in the area.

It's actually cheaper for him to take cards rather than cash. The bank charges 0.6% to pay in on his business account!
Using alternative maths, the docking station costs £29, as the reader is currently available on the same website for £25.

That's weird as I get 1.5% cash back on Amex so they must be losing money on those transactions might get myself one and empty my card into every month. This is does my head in actually when I ask if a place if they take AMEX and they sorry no their fees are too high........ No YOU are with the wrong card provider!
Really good for small or on the go businesses, used it for at a retail fair, came in handy
If you sold some items at a trade Fair for £100 on this what protection do you have as a seller?
Can you have the money taken back and refunded leaving you with nothing?
Yes if the items are not fit for purpose and the buyer raises a claim via the bank
izettle card reader doesn't last very long, I switched to SumUp due to previous iZettle lite reader stopped working
