Super handy if you’re a small business


I’ve had mine for about 6 months and it’s brilliant. It stays in my glove box and comes out when people want to pay by card and it’s always charged and paired in seconds. I use the virtual terminal on my Mac for customers to pay over the phone if I miss them. It’s become an essential part of my business and a great alternative to online payment methods.

Plus the rate has come down to 1.69% now so it’s getting closer to the magic 1% I pay for my GoCardless paying customers.

Keep up the good work 👍🏻

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.

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
