Taking Card Payments

Posted by on October 14, 2014 | No Comments

Looking for a simple and easy form of card-payments using your iPhone or mobile? Heard about iZettle, Square or Paypal

and looking to use one in your business? Well now there’s a new player about to enter the already competitive game; Amazon, with the ‘Amazon Local Register’.

It looks as though Amazon’s eye for closing in and profiting on every market is unstoppable as they now promise a payment product likely to challenge all other competitors’ price with a fee of 1.75% per swipe – lower than any of the competitors listed above.

Amazon are selling the card reader at $9.99 (£5.89) compared to iZettle’s much greater price of £49. It’s US-only at the moment, but let’s hope they’re looking for a UK launch soon.
