Frequently asked questions

Why should I take card payments as a small business?

There are a number of reasons as to why independent businesses must embrace card processing. Quite simply, the move could help to ensure that you broaden your customer base, attracting a new audience by simplifying the transaction process. And by taking card payments, you can help to boost impulse buying, thereby ensuring that consumers spend more money, more often.

What's more, using a card machine to accept card payments means less cash and cheques to deposit, so you're likely to incur fewer bank fees. And if you're worried about security, then you needn't be. Once the necessary infrastructure is in place, you can receive instant authorisation that funds from card transactions are being sent directly to your merchant bank account.

What do I need to get started with payment processing?

Before you start accepting card payments, you will need to install the necessary card processing infrastructure. A merchant account is the first thing any business needs in order to be able to process payments from all types of debit or credit card. And contrary to what you may think, opening a merchant account is surprisingly easy.

You will need to provide some basic details, including business account/current/expected turnover and average transaction values. In addition to this, you will also need to provide details of the frequency of transactions, the nature of your business and the percentage of transactions being taken by card. If you are planning on taking payments through your website, you will also need to set up a payment gateway.

What are the different ways I can accept card payments?

Card processing is highly versatile these days and it's possible to accept card payments in-store, online, over the phone and on the move. Chip and PIN machines (also known as PDQ machines) are used by millions of businesses around the world to process card payments in-store.

Alternatively, if you want to process payments via telephone, fax or mail a virtual terminal is the perfect solution for your business.

How much does it cost to accept card payments?

The credit card processing fees depend on several factors, such as the nature of your business, turnover and the type of card machine you’ll need to process payments (either Countertop, Portable or Mobile). We can let you know the exact costs once we get to know a bit more about your business.

The merchant fees, meanwhile, are what you pay on each transaction and can be broken down into two categories: percentage and flat rate. And, once again, your choice will be determined by the type of business you run.

How do I get paid and how long do payments take to appear on my business bank account?

The funds for the transaction come out of the merchant account, with the sum of the day's sales getting sent out for processing and settlement. Thereafter, the funds are withdrawn from your merchant account and deposited into your business's checking account.

The process takes two business days to complete, meaning you will receive your funds three to five business days after the transaction is first agreed. It will take an average of four to five days for online payments to clear.
