There are several benefits to a customer when they pay using a card reader. Some of these benefits include:
*All SumUp accounts come with a free online store where you can add products/services etc. Where clients can choose a product or service and pay directly to your Sumup account. Also included is free invoicing software. This software is in the process of being updated to add even more functionality.
*You can also add a SumUp card and/or business account once signed up if that was something you might be interested in. This gives access to any funds immediately for use via a Sumup mastercard.
*There are no contracts, no monthly fees, just a per transaction cost of 1.69%. Which works out at approximately 16p per £10. If you think that your organization might take in excess of 70K per year then our fees would be less than that again.
*The Sumup payment gateway uses very high security standards to protect your transactions from unauthorized access by third parties, SumUp operates in accordance with the highest card payment industry security standards:
*PCI-DSS (Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard) is the highest data security standard used in the credit card industry concerning data transfer and data storage.
*SSl (Secure Socket Layer) and TLS (Transport Layer Security) are ‘encryption protocols’ that protect data that is transmitted over the internet. We are using 256-bit encryption, the highest possible level currently available.
*SumUp device encrypts all the information as it reads the card, no unencrypted data is ever stored on both the card reader and your smartphone/tablet during the transaction process. This means you as a business do not store your clients credit card or payment details during the transaction process.
