Frequently asked questions

When should I choose a mobile card reader?

A mobile card reader is great for businesses that need to sell away from their business premises, seasonally or on the road. A good option for trade shows, mobile outlets for food and drink or retail.

  • As no two businesses are the same, Lloyds Bank Cardnet will match you with a service to enable you to take payments within your budget. Pricing will depend on the type of product you choose, card turnover and how you want to receive payments. You will be presented with a full breakdown of your rates and charges clearly before you sign up, so you understand what you’re agreeing to before you start.

  • Your funds should arrive in your business bank account within three to five working days of the transaction. Cardnet also offers “Faster Settlement” which would provide your funds the next working day, for a small fee.

  • Our mobile card readers accept all major credit and debit cards as well as digital wallets, including Mastercard, Visa, American Express, Discover Global Network and Diners Club International, Apple Pay, Google Pay and Samsung Pay.
