Do you have any evidence for this 0.25% estimate, and how this 1.75% is actually split? I don't understand why there needs to be so many parties talking a cut! The card issuer should get nothing, they (usually credit provider or bank) make their profit from charging interest on the transaction amount or by providing it as a debit card with current account which usually receive zero interest due to this benefit... I assume that iZettle and others piggyback off either MasterCard/visa the main networks... but in this age, why do they need to use this cartel? With all the encryption security these days, we should have an open market for card processing networks... not a cartel mentality where the big two control most of the market. At least BACS or interbank payments are currently free lol...


thanks for the update, and yes I agree we should go back to the appropriate thread for future discussion, don't want to go off topic (embarrassed)


Nope. Rang support after the online chat. They cannot understand why it isn't connecting. The sim is one of those that selects the nearest network, (multi network) but I've tried it literally dozens of times and it just keeps coming back with "connection error...". Even drove 2 miles to test it just in case it was a blackspot in my area. They have escalated the case, they think it "may" possibly be faulty unit. The reader itself is quite nice. The screen is "touch" for when you enter your email and pw. You cn change how you connect, via settings, either GSM or Bluetooth. Tomorrow I'm going to take it out and use it via BT. Hopefully SumUp will call me to let me know what will happen. All in all, it is a piece of kit released, IMHO, too soon and hasn't been tested fully. I'll post more updates as and when on the 3G thread HERE


so have you managed to get it connected yet? also what functions/features does this 3G reader have or not have compared to the original reader? e.g can I connect it to the mobile phone app to email or text receipt to customer?


If you're on about bank account, you can choose any bank account you like to get the money paid in.

"We're excited to announce that we're adding more cards to our portfolio! We know that especially international customers would like to pay with Discover, Diners Club and China Union Pay cards, and now you don't have to turn them down. With SumUp you can now accept all major cards - Visa, Mastercard, American Express, Discover, Diners Club and China Union Pay! And the best news: You can accept payments with Discover, Diners and China Union Pay cards at no additional cost."


Just had an email from SumUp regarding my unit. "The issue you have experienced with your 3G reader is currently being investigated by our product and development team. In the mean time, we have issued you a free replacement reader, which is being sent with express shipping. We will be in touch with you shortly once we have arranged for a postage paid return of the faulty reader." So I await the new one and will let you know if and how it works.


Yeah. I forgot to say the keys light up a nice blue for darker conditions. Here is a pic of it with the standard "Air" screen.


thanks for the info so it looks like the 3G reader have all the functions of the original reader just with the big added benefit of 3G internet connection making it able to operate independently without the phone, just shame about your 3G connection errors, hope it's just a one off.


Bought one of these and it was delivered today (18 Oct) via UPS. No dispach email was sent, however a "We are happy to inform you that your order 2xxxxxx is prepared and ready to be shipped to the following delivery address:" It arrived 3 working days after ordering. My experience so far. Having a frustratng time with "Connection error" at the moment. Had to speak to online chat. Overall it's a nice just will NOT connect :( Online chat are as useful as a chocolate teapot. Apprently you can't use another sim in it according to support...although I may try one. I just keep getting "Connection error..." So frustrating. (skeptical) I Tried another sim (Vodafone) and it just immediatly came up with "Connection error..." so it must be a proprietary sim. Rang support after the online chat. They cannot understand why it isn't connecting. The sim is one of those that selects the nearest network, (multi network) but I've tried it literally dozens of times and it just keeps coming back with "connection error...".

The screen is "touch" for when you enter your email and pw.

All in all, it is a piece of kit released, IMHO, too soon and hasn't been tested fully. I'll post more updates as and when I get it sorted.

Ever tried using this to connect a tablet to the tv? I have a Samsung Tab S and it's apparently pretty fussy about mini hdmi wires.


Link? I need Ethernet too ...


I’m after one with Ethernet with a plastic cover. The metal covered one I’ve got at the moment scratches the laptop.


Fair comment (highfive)


Micro USB cannot power a MacBook or any other USB C laptop so not comparable.

Hey! 👋


Yeah I second that, works well, seems well built, USB 2.0 speeds obviously (despite the blue USB ports!) and was surprised that it does read SDXC cards.


Usb limits current to 500ma usually. I wouldn't therefore recommend that you buy this for charging purposes unless you don't mind slow charging.

Thanks, I did notice the other day that it was "on offer again" lol Admittedly though it was full price (£54?) when I had a quick look last week or so. I think they put it up to "full price" every now and then just so they can claim that it is on offer when at £19.


Guess what..


Still no response to my question on Wednesday evening about why they are promising the reader for £19+VAT and then trying to charge you £29+VAT. Instead I've just had some marketing emails from them, including one trying to flog me the reader...


I guess you have more faith than I do about business ethics. It's either cockup or conspiracy, anyway.


I thought they were a decent international company that didn't need to stoop to these tactics?

Why has this deal been expired?


Seems a decent deal to me. I get free next day delivery on orders over £25 with them so I can’t fault that price.


It’s a bit of a faff on older OSes but it looks so much cleaner for builds rather than having an SSD hanging off, gets rid of some excess cabling too.


No problem, most boards that are fairly recent support M.2, even fairly budget oriented ones.

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


Ah, the Minimum Billing. Yes indeed.


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


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.


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.

Thanks, guess this is what happened to my one. Could never get a reasonable USB transfer speed, then the ethernet went as well. Wouldn't recommend it


If you Google "oneplus 5 USB 2.0" a bunch of results come up but this is the best one I've found. It says they've repurposed some of the USB 3.0 pins to allow their fast charge tech to work. That will probably stop this working in even a basic manner.


Hey, do you have a source for this OnePlusinfo? I've never heard about it before?


Yes it does as long as it's got usb C. HDMI only works if phone has Displayport alternate mode over C support. Won't work on OnePlus 5 and OnePlus 6 with fake Usb C port( electrically only usb 2.0 to support their obsolete dash charger).


Is this "7 in 1" or "6 in 1"? Edit: USB type C Power Delivery, 3 USB 3.0, Micro SD card and SD Card slot. It's a 6 in 1.

That sounds about right if I remember. Its just SMB so once connected to the AP, // to the IP address and it should show your shares.


Ooh, nice! I had a play around and got SMB running yesterday. Do you think it'll be fine creating an access point after that? In theory I could then just use a file explorer to access the hard drive, like I do now, but the solution would be portable. Unless I'm missing something?

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.


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.

No, I posted twice because they were (slightly) different prices for different sellers. The only reason I post deals is so that other people can benefit from them - I’ve got nothing to gain from them


Agree that Sumup is excellent. Been using them for 3 years, lowest rates, card reader always works well.


i'm using paypal here and it is working perfectly fine, and the whole point of paypal here is to have the money instantly in your account (litteraly instantly) i even use the online paypal dashboard on my computer to print my receipts, so i just take the payment, refresh the paypal page to see the money and print the receipt i also just found about the paypal access card which would be usefull to use the paypal money from a card (to buy my business stock), tht would be the best combo for small businesses honestly that's really usefull, rather than waiting a few days to get a bank trensfer i have about £1000 card payments every month and i'm paying about £30 fees for paypal, and it worth it i think, and it also have an online invoice so people can pay by card or paypal through a link sent by email also i just checked sumup and i see a lot of restricted businesses and i would not even be able to use it as i kind of do a "door to door" service..

Agree that Sumup is much better and cheaper. No reason to waste your money with the behemoth that is PayPal.


Useful for tramps


PayPal fees are high enough and I believe this should be offered FOC.


My local subway franchise uses it


SumUp card reader much better in my opinion had mine for around a year, similar price of £29 +Vat (£34.80 inc Vat) but instead of PayPal’s variable rate 2.75%-1% determines by the incoming amount. Sum up offers a fixed 1.69% which is much better and lower than the 2.75% you would probably have with PayPal! My advice do your homework on both items, but if you aren’t going to be bringing in a lot of money sum up certainly better! Lovely app interface as well!
