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.

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...



This is a great device had this well over 3 months and not charged it once yet. If I don’t use within 20 minutes it goes into sleep but comes straight on as soon as I use the app on my phone. Not sure why people saying that it’s doesn’t come back on maybe they need updating there device. Also like to point that other companies charge you a monthly subscription or a higher percentage, you can’t beat 1.67% for charges and no monthly fee. Top dollar to sum up
