Refreshed 2nd Jul (Posted 8th Mar)
Not been this price for a while so thought it worth sharing now it's dropped back down to just £19 + VAT (£22.80) - it's an excellent price for what it can do & is ideal for small businesses to take card payments.

What is iZettle?

  • Top industry certifications and state-of-the-art technology and systems ensure payments kept safe
  • Battery life of 8 hours active use or 100 transactions
  • Charge with USB or the iZettle Dock (which is also on offer, buy both the reader & the dock for £49 + VAT)

Even more free features:

  • Make better business decisions with in-depth sales reports
  • Take cash, card and invoice payments as well as Apple and Android pay.
  • Create relationships with our Customers feature

Offer valid until 2018.03.08 for one (1) iZettle Reader and/or iZettle Reader + iZettle Dock per new business user.

So is the offer still available, I can never work out those silly American dates, is it on until the 8th of March or the 3rd of August?

No, if your core business address and verification location account is held in the UK, it is always GBP, you can get one if you have a non UK address linked to a Euro account, but all the request invoices are in sterling to be settled in sterling, they do other plans like Go + and Pro, so if you need more currencies you could use those. It is easier to get paid in sterling and then swop out to a euro account with swift or rev for free fee exchange to your UK account.
I've voted hot cos it's a good offer but if you're setting up your own business I would suggest you check out the traditional merchant providers like global payments, barclaycard etc too. To give an example we pay £20/mo terminal fees but transaction fees are way way less, 0.3% for debit and 0.8 for credit cards. Debit cards used to be 20p each until recently!

These 1.75% transaction fees will really make a dent on your bottom line if you're processing larger amounts. A great solution for cottage industries though

I use Worldpay, Terminal costs less at £12/mo but higher fees at 1.4% & 0.6% iZettle would probably save me a few £ over the year but been with Worldpay 28 years with faultless service, same day terminal repairs/replacement etc. If I was younger I would probably try them but only a few years to retirement.

Tiptop bit of kit & steal of the day at that price!

Just edges paypal here|there|where devices and would be #1 if you could talk to a real person out of hours, without paying for the privilege to do so monthly.

If they reduced their transaction fee by the smallest of % points, they would be the #1 in the UK for mobile transaction processing, but they have not yet.

Magnus is a genius for getting in on the way to pay for stuff devices early, but with all the on line bank account providers popping up all over the place and zero % payment fee's they might have to add some other features sooner, rather than later

This runs out at midnight today, 8th March, so get filling in to save!

Surprised @wishihadadonkey found this at this price, as last time they did this, it was all hands on deck and they sold like hot cakes, since then, the firmware and OS has been updated and is much faster to connect a ping ((transaction)) and the funds seem to arrive a whole day earlier to the accounts now

Husband has bought some in the past, he gets regular emails with offers, was beaten to it last time
It's showing as £35.67 inc VAT when I try and buy a card reader??
I opened an account 3 weeks ago but never bought a card reader because of the higher than the normal offer price but it has not reduced now.

"the inherited wealth of established upper-class families (i.e. gentry, patriciate)" or "a person, family, or lineage possessing inherited wealth"


Do you have a mobile reader with your merchant, as that terminal fee per month is fab for WP?

No it's a fixed (about 3 yards of cable) contactless terminal, I have no use for mobile one.

Or get a revolut card and its about 1%

Or get a revolut card and its about 1%


Maybe?

Don't have one but when they first came out funding them with a credit card was hit and miss if it was classed as 'purchase' or 'cash advance' by the credit card provider. This could be an expensive mistake on say £10k. Is this still the case?
Can I strap myself with these, jump into the tube and fill up on contactless payments?
Much improved software. I used to have problems connecting with the old one but now they have their act together. The post processing analysis is pretty good too. Far better than my weebly website business plan analytics. Would recommend.
great find
Any tips for a mobile printer to go with this? The one they recommend is quite expensive.
Thanks, been waiting for this price.🙏
good piece of kit and very easy to use.

The device is linked to your verified address. It is linked to your verified bank details. They do a credit check.

Each time you use the device it creates a unique id, along with the details of the mobile being used, plus a map reference.

Easy enough to trace. So you may get away with it once or twice, but there will be an easily traceable pattern.

IIRC those fees were drastically reduced because of an EU ruling. Thus, like roaming fees, you have to wonder what will happen to them when we leave the EU.

I see. It's called the EU Interchange Cap.

I'm a bit confused as to why you're paying hear rates when EU law states otherwise.

Saying that it begs the question why Izettle rates are 1.75%
So will this thing pretty much work with any bluetooth receipt printer aka the ebay £40 ones?

No idea what you are saying, sorry
I have a PayPal reader -I lose 2% per transaction.

Except on Friday last week when I recieved a £1995.00 payment the reader has been playing up so I had to enter card details manually.

Got charged 3.75% and they only released £400 held on to £1526.00 for 21days I’m fuming .

Please make sure you read all the small print . I do like the card reader option still and I take lots of smaller payments around the £50-£200 mark so it’s ideal for us .

But annoyed by the large fees and holding onto money that’s not there money!

I thought the idea was that merchants couldn't pass that fee on to the customer. Izettle charge fees so they make money.
Anyone knows how do I apply discount to my account once I sign in price changes

What you’ve advised is probably not a great idea when setting up your own business. Unless you know what your transaction profile is going to be you’re better of starting with something like iZettle/SumUp that has very little outlay and no monthly commitment.

Once you know your transaction profile plus any forecast then you’re better off shopping around amongst the other providers.

There’s a comparison site that helps you too. It I don’t think it has all merchants on there.
Yyy sum up goes down to 19 quite often. Few days ago it was for 9gbp

So you say you pay 1.4% PLUS 20p? So, on a £10 transaction that would cost you 14p+20p =24p

With iZettle they charge 1.75% per transactions. So, on a £10 transaction that would cost me a straight 17.5p.
Yeah...real cold lol

And quite what you mean by "no monthly mins" I'll never know!
