Update....I have since received another SumUp 3g reader, a few days after typing that review up there, (my THIRD 3g reader) this has also been sent back for a full refund now. I've given up on that one. It is just too flakey to use. "Connection error" is too common. I'm sticking with iZettle now. I don't care about the tiny % extra. It's worth it.

Thanks for this response. really helpful!

Don't bother with the Paypal one it's very very slow to take contactless. I mean like 30 seconds slow. I have used the iZettle machine [since the original incarnation and then upgrade], and also the SumUp [Bluetooth] machine. I also have the new 4G SumUp machine. Out of all 3, I can say the iZettle machine is perfect in every way. It is very fast at taking payments from contactless. Almost instant. I have NEVER had a problem with it connecting to my phone, beit a Samsung Galaxy SS6, Hauwei P20 or my current phone iPhone XR. It connects, each and every time instantly without a complaint. The SumUp Bluetooth machine is, IMHO, not good. It will regularly disconnect from bluetooth, even right in the middle of a transaction. You cannot imagine how embarrassing that is when you have a customer wants to catch their train and they then have to go to the cash point machine. So annoying. It currently resides in a drawer somewhere. The [new] SumUp 3g machine is prone to problems too. The battery is awful. I mean literally awful. It will drain 20% per hour, without even thinking about it, and that is in "standby". Yes, in standby!!! That means, to save power, I have to turn it off in between transactions! Then, as I am approaching the destination I will turn it on and hope for the best. I quite often get "Connection error", and I even had a "blue screen" 3 times so far....like the old Windows bluescreen of Death (see pic below) I was even taking an £85 fare recently and it froze right as the card was inserted. This meant the passenger had to wait for a full reboot. (My iZettle was at home I forgot it) I just keep the SumUp 4g purely as a back up now. I wasted £60 odd quid on that one! If you want my honest recommendation, go for iZettle every time. It may be 0.25% more, but my God, it's worth it to save the embarrassment that is the SumUp machines. The new SumUp 4G Blue Screen of Death.

I’ve used SumUp for over 3 years. Very fast payouts, reader is quick to use.

How does it compare to Square or PayPal card readers in terms of charges and speed of payments arriving into one’s account? Anyone know?

UPDATE 16/01/2019 I'M Sending mine back. Too many "connection error" and device freezing. Should not have been put out for public use. It's highly embarrassing when you get errors or freezes in front of customers. Out of all the machine iZettle is the only 100% reliable unit. Worth paying 0.25% more just for that.

Yeah was worrying about chargebacks etc hence why I want to send receipt to customer and sms seems to be the quickest way, not willing to pay around £200?? for a compatible printer.

StonkwellBogtrotter

Check on your bank account too. On the 2 test payments I did, My bank has it listed as "SumUp* valleywide taxi Pewsey" I'm not anything to do with them so I've raised a ticket about that cus if customers see that on their statements and they've never been to Pewsey, then they could do a charge back,thinking it was fraudulent!! Also, and it may be coincidence, I've not received my payments from them yet since using the reader. Usually I would get payment 2 days after taking them. Usually around 17.30hrs. But still waiting for yesterday's scheduled payout. I have mentioned this to them last night and he assured me it has been paid to the correct bank account. He even quoted me my details. So if I don't receive it by this evening I'll be on to then again.

No1_Dave

well, I'll need to give them a call later today to try and sort it out.

StonkwellBogtrotter

Yeah I found that too about SMS receipts

Petty sure this deal is until the end of the month for anyone who still wants one

Silhouette

Ah, the Minimum Billing. Yes indeed.

uksurfer

If you search on ebay the machines are cheaper plus search "sumup stand" you will find some for £15

uksurfer

The card fees yes. Most companies now charge a minimum card fee so if you're contracted to pay £10 a month in fees but you only take payments that only cost say £3 in fees, you will be charged the minimum £10 that you are contracted to.

Silhouette

Of course! How did I not "x12" on that hire fee! When you say processing fee, I assume you mean other than the card fees - so you're talking about things like non-secure fees and the such. PCI is a bit of a beast at the moment too - so for ease, hell yes. I would like SumUp to bring out a nice looking Dock too so you could turn it into a nice looking desktop terminal too.

I'm been using sumup for years. Normally takes on average 3 days to receive the funds. Never waited longer than 5 days and thats when I first started with them. Never had any problems with them either. used izettle at the very start but that was when they only accepted visa.

You may have missed the VAT consideration. Effectively same price as both marketed at "special offer" £19+VAT & both offers expire today 30 April 2018 - assuming the marketing departments choose not to miraculously extend.

redcantona

You're missing the point. I already have a PayPal reader. If I bought this I'd have to take almost £30,000 before it paid for itself. It's a good option only if you don't have a card reader.

great bit of kit but amazon have it for £18 https://www.amazon.co.uk/Sum-Up-Air-Card-Reader-White/dp/B06XBDXDRM/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1515533244&sr=8-1&keywords=sumup

highguyuk

We've got SumUp and never had any problems. Thought the fee was higher actually, quite impressed by 1.69% - even for American Express. You can login via computer and take card payment too, although with a higher fee of 2.95% + 0.25p (no idea why a higher fee though?!)

Unless there are different rates of charges for different types of card readers with these guys. It the charges are 2.95% +€0.25 cents. There's no clear timescale as to how long it takes to be paid. It says A few more days than the usual. The problem is when comes card processing there is no "usual". The SMS payment feature has the potential to cause you a lot headache for the following reasons. It says. Once a transaction has been initiated you cannot process a further transaction until the first one is completed. The SMS link lasts for 30 days! Imagine a transaction is initiated but not completed. You might have wait for SMS link to expire before you can process another payment. Best case it needs clarification and worst case you're screwed (pardon my French).

dotnetter

Interesting idea... Would that work.. And.. Is it technically allowed by credit card providers??

Zanderman

Have now ordered a Sum Up reader and can confirm Sum Up do provide a virtual terminal on their website for payments by phone. It doesn't actually use the card reader (obviously) but is only accessible if you have an account - and you need a card reader to have an account. Charges for virtual terminal are slightly higher than the card reader transactions at 2.95% + £0.25 per transaction. Don't know whether izettle have this facitity or not but I need both facilities - reader and virtual terminal so Sum Up looks good for me

Zanderman

Re not doing payments by phone omneity1 above says you can now do 'Customer not present' transactions with SumUp. and the link sumup.co.uk/blo…nts seems to confirm this. Surely that does include payments by phone?

deleted1293960

They have your money earning them interest for a week, THAT is how the transaction fee can be so low; the iZettle pays into your bank within 24 hours. Right now, although the interest WE get paid is near zero, interest on business investments and cards is much higher - 30-50%, so they can make a significant amount when you total up all the funds they have "sitting" for a week. The danger of this, if too many investments go bad, they quickly run out of cash - and you end up paying the cost.
