This is their standard offering, allowing for chip and PIN, contactless, and mobile payments via Apple Pay and Google Pay. It connects to your smartphone via Bluetooth, making it easy to input payments and track data.
One difference between SumUp and the Square Reader is that the Air Card Reader includes an OLED display, allowing customers to see the transaction before they pay. While the Square Reader looks aesthetically unique, it does not allow customers to see this data. The Air Card Reader also has a rechargeable battery, which allows it to be used remotely or in a fixed location, and can handle over 500 transactions before it requires a charge.
SumUp also offer the 3G card reader, a unique device that connects to the internet wirelessly via an in-built SIM card. This means that you don’t require a Wi-Fi connect or smartphone to take payments – simply type in the amount and accept the payment. This is perfect for small, mobile businesses that want to take card payments without any fuss. What’s more, your transactions are stilled logged on your dashboard, so you can track them at your earliest convenience.
