While we may have become accustomed to them, mobile card payments are a recent luxury. Card payment systems used to be tied down to countertops with endless wires and clunky machinery. Not to mention the masses of paperwork, bureaucracy and setup issues that came alongside getting started with a card reader.

For many small business owners, this was a hurdle that wasn’t worth jumping. While this may be a thing of the past, many payment providers still leave small businesses at a disadvantage by only offering their tools up at the cost of expensive fees and binding contracts. That’s where we come in… 

SumUp’s mobile card machines enable you to take your business anywhere, anytime. Designed with the small business owner in mind, we made sure that portable card payments could be taken without the need for contracts, scary fees or surprises.

Accept contactless, Chip and PIN payments and even offer your customers remote payment solutions such as Invoices, Gift Cards and Payment Links.

Why use a mobile card machine? 

Offering mobile, contactless payment gives your customers the one thing they’re looking for, and that’s flexibility. Business moves fast, and you need a card payment system that can keep up. Forget about queues and being tied down to once place.

Take your mobile card reader where your business takes you. Take payment at your customer’s table, around your store or even in their home. You can even set your employees up with card readers around your store so they can take payment to the customer. It’s that easy. 

At SumUp we offer a series of payment solutions. If you’re looking for a mobile credit card terminal, choose from our SumUp Air Card Reader and our SumUp 3G Card Reader
