Frequently asked questions

What’s the difference between mPOS and other mobile card readers?

The main difference is to do with your contract. Our Mobile Point of Sale is a great option for small business card payments as it has no minimum contract or monthly fee. It’s even small enough to fit in your pocket, so whether you have a business premises or not, you can set up and start selling from anywhere.  

The other mobile card readers and our portable and countertop machines all come with a range of contract options, where you pay a monthly rental charge.
