Can I run my business from a card machine?

Running your business solely from a card machine is not feasible, but if you're looking for one simple device to provide all the technology you need to run a business, our Pro+ combines POS software and payment processing to offer all you need to trade.

But even if you need to purchase other POS devices alongside your card machine. Payment processing is a crucial tool for facilitating transactions.

  • Card reader machines can be seen as a vital supplement to your business operations, as they allow you to accept different methods of payments securely.

  • A small business card reader facilitates transactions, but you'll still need other tools like inventory management, sales tracking, and customer relationship management systems to run your business efficiently.

  • Integrated payments with other software or hardware solutions can offer a seamless operational setup. Simply connect your payment terminal to your POS system and control everything from one device!

What is the cheapest way to accept card payments? 

Consider the following to start accepting all types of payments:

  • Online credit card processing: Use online payment gateways like PayPal which often have competitive transaction fees and no monthly subscription costs.

  • Mobile card readers: Invest in a mobile card reader from providers like Epos Now, with different options available and without long-term contracts that accept all major card providers including Visa and Mastercard.

  • Flat-rate processing: Look for payment processors like Epos Now payment processing that offer flat-rate processing fees, which can simplify pricing and potentially save you money on lower-volume transactions.

  • Compare transaction fees carefully: Compare processing fees, setup costs, and any additional charges across different providers to find the most cost-effective credit card processor option for your business needs.
