The benefits of taking card payments


Contactless payments are fast becoming the norm for customers

Contactless payments now represent 88% of all payments taken in the UK. People now more than ever are relying on their cards or using apps such as Google Pay and Apple Pay via their smartphones in this new cashless society that has emerged since the pandemic.

Increase your business’s revenue

Not only is it easier and more convenient for your customers, but there is also evidence to suggest that generally when paying by card, people tend to spend more as there are no restrictions, or limitations by what cash they have on them at the time. This ultimately means there is a real opportunity to increase your revenue.​

Identify spending trends to grow your business

It is also much easier to analyse your customer spending and to identify trends that can help your business grow. Selected card payment providers have free reporting tools and insights, which allows merchants to keep track of their transactions and also allows them to reconcile receipts and better manage their cash flow.
