I have already started this discussion on Computer corner but thought I would add it here to canvas some general opinions of the system.
Do any of you that do craft fairs, markets etc take card payments via a smartphone/ Tablet? I am investigating iZettle at the moment. .iZettle costs 2.75% on the transaction but nothing to run no monthly fee .The classic Carte bleu through the bank is too expensive for a very small business like ours. I know there is also SumUp and Payleven. If We go for it I will have to get a compatible tablet and a 3G clé
I could go the smart phone route but as OH and I need to share the system on different markets and foires I believe a tablette would be more flexible for us. We are in the South West so very countrified hence the need for 3G, we do go to markets where there is no electric and sometimes no mobile or wifi connection.
Any one currently using the system? Any thoughts?
I don't know how many other people will know or use this here in France at the moment. It's very new here in France .
I understand from my sister in the Uk it's being used very successfully there . I have asked around with fellow stall holders here but everyone seems amazed as if I am talking of something from outer space They are very happy paying monthly abonements to their bank for the old carte bleu system, which is too pricey for us. In my opinion the French embrace new technology very well but it takes longer to spread in usage. We also only take Paypal for our website but I do loose sales there also as many of the French public haven't even cottoned on to paypal despite many French businesses taking paypal on-line.
