This may come across as confusing, but bear with me.
I believe I have found the ideal solution for our carte bleu payments. We don't currently take carte bleu as the abbonements are too much for a very small business plus the majority of our sales in France are made while outside ie. markets and foires. We rarely have electric on those markets and 30% of the places we go to don't have a phone signal Vive la sud ouest !!!
I found out about iZettle last night, https://www.izettle.com/fr
It's a card reader that plugs into a smartphone or tablet and uses 3G to take payments. No monthly charge if you don't use it 2.75% of the take when you do.
I have now found out about 3G why it is different to Wifi. I realise that it will be necessary to make the system work when away from wifi hotspots etc.
My dilemma; I have an allergy to smart phones I have tried twice to get on with them but no go.
Sooo my thinking takes to to getting a 3G tablet and using that, however will I need to get a 3G compatible mobile abonnement to make the tablet work on 3G? The tablet solution would be more flexible as both my husband and I will be using the system so the tablet will mean he can take the tablet and card reader to a market and I won't loose my phone, which is what would happen if I bit the bullet and went the smart phone route.
Anyone know if 3G tablets work on 3G when you don't have a 3G dongle or abbonement?
Thanks for any opinions on any part of this subject.
