iZettle Review #StartUps

So what do you need to know?

Is the iZettle card reader easy to set up? 

Very. The card reader uses Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) to connect to your mobile device. BLE uses less power than standard Bluetooth, and should provide a painless pairing experience.  

How do you set up the iZettle card reader?

We found this really intuitive. Once you’ve downloaded the app, just head over to the settings tab, select the card reader option, and select your iZettle card reader model from the list. You’ll then be given step by step instructions on how to complete the setup. 

How does the iZettle card reader work alongside the apps? 

The apps are where you start the transaction. Just select which menu item or items your customer wants, or scan the contents of your customer’s shopping basket using your mobile phone or iZettle’s compatible scanner (additional cost). 

Once all of the items have been entered, press ‘charge’, and the total sum is wirelessly transferred to the iZettle card reader.

What else do we love about the iZettle card reader? 

You can take payments from credit cards, debit cards, American Express, and mobile payment apps in as little as five seconds – very handy if you’re a sole trader running a busy retail business. 

But best of all, you don’t need a merchant account. You can set up your iZettle account so you are paid directly into your business bank account or PayPal account, which means you’ll see your earnings come in in one to two days – one of the fastest processing times in the payments sector. 

I want to set up an ecommerce store, too. How does that work?

iZettle has its own ecommerce platform. Use its intuitive drag and drop templates to build your own ecommerce website, then pay £29/month to use it. You can even sync it with the iZettle Go app to track inventory and sales from both your bricks and mortar store and your online store. 

Just bear in mind that iZettle charges 2.5% per transaction. Customers can also pay using PayPal, which incurs a 2% transaction fee.
