What’s the difference between a portable card reader and a countertop card machine?

Countertop card terminals commonly connect to card issuers via regular telephone lines, wired or wireless internet. Mobile card payments can be made with Clear Business portable card machines, eliminating the need for fixed registers.

How does that work? Just as it sounds, you can be paid anywhere. All you need to do is take your card machine to the paying customer.

However, if a countertop card machine would work for your company, we can also provide this for you. Many businesses choose a combination of terminal types to offer mobility and flexibility and optimise their ability to serve quickly.

How will implementing our card payment solutions improve your cash flow ?

One of the main advantages to having a card payment system in place is the ability to accept more forms of payment. It opens up avenues for all types of clients, ensuring no paying customer can be turned away.

Customers spend more

Recently, the contactless payment limit was raised to £100. Without this cap, consumers are much more likely to spend more on their digital eWallets and contactless-enabled cards.

No installation or set up fees

Many providers charge fees for setting up your payment solutions, we do not. For us, ensuring our customers are happy and confident in their decision is a top priority. We want to help you the best we can without charging additional fees.

Faster sales, faster payments

The faster you are able to process transactions, the greater the reduction in impatient customers. Handling cash as your main source of payment method can be tricky due to the time it takes to count change. Our fast card machines reduce queues and upset customers.

Customer satisfaction

Once your customers know that you can accept various payment methods, they’ll be encouraged to purchase your products/services without worry. The speedy payment process will ensure customers walk away happy and satisfied with their purchases.

UK & International sales

International card acceptance and automatic currency conversion make these cards an invaluable payment method for businesses in the tourist sector or those selling to buyers abroad. For tourists, card payment is favourable due to the safety and security associated with it.
