A game changer

I’ve been using SumUp for about two years now and don’t know what I would do without it. Always reliable and never late paying straight into your account. Monthly statements makes accounting so easy. My clients regularly comment on how easy it is to use and sending receipts via email or sms is a doddle. The real game changer however is the virtual terminal facility for over the phone payments. As a very small business, I couldn’t justify the over the top bank merchant service fees and fixed contracts that also come with other merchant facilities. Thank you SumUp for a brilliant service.

Hi Sophie. It's great to hear that SumUp has made your working life easier and has improved your customer experience in a small way. We would like to say however (in case any prospective SumUp merchants are reading this) that the Virtual Terminal is unfortunately not something we are able to supply all of our merchants with but rather must be applied for separately; although, of course we aim to enable this on as many of our merchants' accounts as possible. If you feel that our service would serve some benefit to any of your business-owning friends, please feel free to take advantage of our Refer-a-Friend scheme whereby they will receive a discount on their order for the Card Reader. You will also receive a bonus payment for each friend you refer. Kind regards, your SumUp team.

Best little card reader ever !

I’ve had my reader over 12 months now and it just Works as it should. It’s brilliant and improved business by 90% as before we only took cash payments.
You can tap, swipe or insert the card for payment or even type in the card number if it doesn’t read it.
I just love it and couldn’t do without it now. They always answer any query I’ve had which hasn’t been many but there very professional and I will continue to use it for as long as it’s available.

Hello Ddsaps,

Thank you for the incredible feedback ♥

We hope you are utilising our in-app or dashboard referral feature, where you will be able to earn £20 from a friend registering and purchasing a SumUp card reader.

All the best,
SumUp Team

I started out with payleven and now useless no the sumup model. Works okay as long as you have signal, the payments do take too long to go in to your bank but I’ll be told that’s down to my bank... and my other issue is that every time I use the card reader I have to go through the set up process as my I phone will not find the device otherwise. I never had an issue when using the payleven card reader so I’m not sure as to why it’s changed. I have been told to contact the help team which I have but to no avail. Both devices have been reset numerous times but it still carry’s in the same, so I’ve just used to asking my customers to wait while I set it up...
