The latest iZettle chip and pin reader is available but does it live up to its promise?
Not accepting credit or debit cards means lost sales and these days the trend is all about cashless shopping.
For many SME's, traditional Point of Sale (POS) solutions have been the least favourable option due to their high costs, limitations and slow application processes.
iZettle promises to change that. A sleek small card reader that works alongside a neat app on your smartphone or tablet, iZettle can be used anywhere and operates on a pay as you go model. No monthly fees, no minimum contract. Just a transparent transaction fee of 1.5% – 2.75%. This is purely mobile POS payments without additional troubles.
Alongside the chip and pin reader, all you need is a compatible smartphone or tablet to run the iZettle app, which is free and runs on Apple (iPhone, iPad) and Android platforms. And yes, it works fantastic on iPhones and iPads too.
