Vend + iZettle: Credit and debit card payments made easy and affordable

izettle-blog-header

We’ve got some exciting news – you now have even more ways to accept payments from your customers, with the addition of iZettle credit and debit card support in Vend.

iZettle is Europe’s number one mobile payments provider. The team there are committed to giving retailers simple, fast, and more affordable credit and debit card payments.

Open up your store to even more customers by accepting major credit and debit cards using iZettle’s secure wireless Chip & PIN reader, which seamlessly integrates with the Vend Register iPad App, using the product and pricing information already programmed into Vend’s point-of-sale platform, avoiding the need to manually key in prices on a cash register or credit card terminal. Also, it doesn’t require a separate phone line.
iZettle is EMV approved and accepts all major credit and debit cards including Visa, Mastercard and American Express. iZettle also offers extra benefits for retailers, such as Smart Rate, which automatically reduces retailer’s transaction fees based on their monthly sales – starting at 2.75% and dropping to as little as 1.50% per transaction. Retailers will enjoy lower hardware, software and IT management costs in addition to the reduced transaction fees.

Currently, iZettle is available in UK, Mexico, Germany, Spain, Sweden, Norway, Finland, Denmark, Brazil, and The Netherlands. More countries are being added in 2015.

Here’s what Vend retailer Etsy has to say about Vend + iZettle:

“Vend Register and iZettle have enabled us to have a mobile checkout system. People can come in, browse the space, and not feel like they have to move to one location to pay. It allows our staff to take credit cards and enables us to do e-receipts, and to focus on that customer experience.”

 

It’s real easy to get started with Vend + iZettle:

1. Sign up for a Vend account and download the Vend Register iPad app.

2. Sign up to iZettle for free. You’ll be shipped a half price Chip & PIN card reader that works with the Vend Register app (this is a limited time offer, see the special offer section below for more info).

3. Add iZettle as a payment option in Vend using your iZettle details. Here’s a handy Help Center article that shows you how.
