IZettle

quick question - has anyone used izettle for accepting debit card payments?  Just thinking of signing up and buying a card reader for £25.  Transactions are charged at 1.75% which seems ok to me.  Really want it for tempting cheque paying older customers into using their debit card instead when we complete a job rather than a trip to the bank for us.  We're also doing a plant fayre this summer and thought this would increase sales.  Anyone used it or anything similar?

    I have the sum up card reader but I think they are much of a muchness really easy to use. Money goes in the account in a couple days.

    Hi, I've been using an IZettle this year and i'm very happy with it, once payment is made the money is in my account within a couple of days. The IZettle app on my phone works well you can customise different products and prices. A receipt can be emailed or text message is sent once payment is made. 

    I also bought a LM 200 portable printer off eBay which is great for my customers who haven't a mobile/computer or just prefer a receipt printed , the receipt can be customised with your logo etc.

      Really useful, thanks Chris.  Will order the card reader tonight.  Should reduce those trips to the bank to pay in cheques!
