Why should I use tapeeno?

If you’re a micro-business, taking under £2,500 a month, tapeeno is ideal for you. It enables you to take speedy contactless payments without having to carry around a card machine. Before the partnership between Apple and tapeeno, tapeeno was only available on Android. Getting accredited by Apple is not easily obtained, and having a payment app on both operating systems means that even more users can experience tapeeno. It is free to download from the App Store, there are no contracts, and it's easy to use. You will be able to use Tap to Pay on iPhone with tapeeno if you have an iPhone XS or later, running the latest iOS. On the tapeeno app, you can see all your sales, refunds, and even analytics to help you keep track of your business. On the app, you can also send your customers email and SMS receipts.

How much does it cost to use tapeeno?

On every transaction you make, you will be charged a small fee of 1.5%. For example, if you take a £100 transaction, you will be charged £1.50. Your business will be charged 20p for every refund. These are the only charges associated with tapeeno; there is no setup fee or monthly charges.

How do I get paid with tapeeno?

Low cash flow can be an issue for a business of any size, but micro-businesses are especially impacted. Tapeeno will fund your business bank account within one hour of your transaction. Your payments will be made between 9 am to 5 pm, Monday to Friday. If your business makes a transaction after 5 pm, or on the weekend, you will get funded the next working day. This eliminates the low cash flow issues many businesses face. Many merchant service providers can take up to three working days to process your payments.
