Everything you need to know is below.
Q: Don’t I have to get a card reader machine from my bank?
A: No. This is where most small business owners go wrong. You do not need to go to your bank for a cheap credit card machine or merchant account, regardless of what the bank manager tells you. We supply you with a debit card machine and merchant account that deposits funds into your normal bank account. You will need a business bank account unless you are a sole trader then you can also use a personal account.
Q: When will i receive my new pdq machine?
A: Delivery usually takes 3-5 working days. We post pdq machines by next day courier once your account is open.

We will email over a contract which you can accept with the click of a button.
Q: Do I get a Merchant Account also?
A: Yes. We work with Elavon Merchant Services, a world leader in payment processing. We’ve negotiated special rates and open a merchant account for you. Our equipment will only work with our merchant account & you will not be able to use another suppliers equipment with our merchant accounts. So don’t try and buy a credit card machine either as it won’t work.

A: Yes, we offer both contactless and non-contactless terminals. Our contactless terminals come with a colour screen, whereas the non-contactless terminals are monochrome. As of 2016 all new deployed terminals will be contactless enabled by default.
Q: How much do credit card machines cost?
A: Some providers charge you a monthly fee between £10-20 a month, for a card machine rental agreement, to cover your card machine hire. Beware of deals for cheap card machines, as they usually come with additional hidden fees. As a member of CardProcessing.co.uk you enjoy free access to membership benefits such as Tax & VAT investigation insurance, free legal helpline, discounted merchant services, and free equipment.
Q: How do I Switch credit card machine rental provider?
A: Your existing provider may be a third party or a well know high street bank. Either way, the process is the same.

Q: What types of card can I accept with your machines?
A: Our card terminals are manufactured by market leaders Ingenico and Verifone. They are fully accredited by the major card schemes like Visa, Mastercard, Maestro, American Express, Diners and JCB. If there’s any card type in particular you need, just call one of our experts on 0845 2000 435.

Q: Are these payment card machines secure?
A: Yes, we only supply secure payment systems. All machines are compliant to the latest PCI security standards, and will exceed validation for some time. PCI DSS are a set of requirements for enhancing payment account data security. It applies to all businesses that take card payments. We work with a third party company called Trustwave in order to get you enrolled for validation. The service renews annually and ensures your business handles card data securely.
