Card Machines for Small Business in Manchester

Using a card machine for your small business in Manchester is essential to business growth, due to the fact that 80% of the public rely on contactless payments in their day-to-day lives. Card machines offer a convenient, efficient, and safe way to accept payments.

Over three quarters of the UK live an almost cashless life. If small businesses in Manchester were to only accept cash, they would potentially be turning away a large amount of customers who use cards as their main or only form of payment. Contactless or card payment is more convenient for the average person, as it takes up less space and offers a quicker payment solution.

Taking card transactions minimises the time customers have to queue, increasing customer satisfaction as well as allowing your business to serve more customers. We also send out free end-of-day reports as an option, so your business is able to keep track of transactions from your trading day.

Small businesses that use card machines report that customers are more inclined to purchase additional products when paying with card, as they do not have the same restrictions as when paying with cash.

Keeping large quantities of cash on the premises makes a business more vulnerable to break-ins and theft. Small businesses in Manchester are able to reduce their risk of theft by limiting the amount of cash. Accepting card payments also eliminates the risk of fraudulent bank notes.
