Written by James Shaw

There's a whole host of reasons thousands of businesses like yours are choosing to integrate their payments technology. Epos Now has partnered with Europe's leading payment provider, Paymentsense, to bring you and your customers a more flexible, scalable and secure payment experience.

What are integrated payments?

Integrated payments are a means of connecting your EPOS system to your card terminal. This seamless connection means the technology can communicate, eliminating the need for your staff to manually key in transaction amounts. This is hugely beneficial for businesses and their customers.

How does it work?

The Paymentsense integration is powered by Connect technology which establishes a secure connection between your Epos Now system and your Paymentsense card machine. When the transaction is input into your EPOS, the total amounts are automatically displayed on your card terminal ready for payment.

Why should I integrate?

  • Customer experience: As we know, the customer is always at the heart of good business. An integrated payments process creates a seamless customer experience, letting them pay the way they want, when they want without having to wait.
  • Speed of service: With no need to manually input transaction totals, businesses can improve the speed of service, allowing you to cut queues and turn tables over up to 4x faster than businesses without integrated payments.
  • Eliminate human error: Miskeyed transactions are a big cost to businesses, both in revenue and in damaged reputation. Whether it’s an accidental mistype, or a purposeful attempt at theft, your employee's actions leave you vulnerable. Integrating your payments affords you additional protection.
  • Save hours in admin: Report reconciliation is a tedious task the bane of owners, managers and supervisors everywhere. Integrated payments mean there's no need to compare EPOS or terminal reports, allowing your staff to close down quicker reducing wage costs.
