Called Intuit Pay, the app works with a pocket-sized chip and PIN card reader for face-to-face payments and a secure website for online payments from home or office, ideal for taking card payments over the phone.
There are no monthly fees or commitment - just a fee of 2.75% per transaction. The card reader is currently available for £49 (exc. VAT).
"Intuit Pay has allowed me to grow my business by accepting card payments at events across the country," Said David Waterfield, owner of DavesinPlymouth.co.uk, who used the Android app as part of the pilot. "Most of my customers prefer to pay by card because of the security, so having the Intuit Pay app ready anytime and anywhere on my Android phone is a fantastic experience."
Mark Little, vice president and U.K. managing director for Intuit, said "Intuit Pay is helping thousands of small businesses in the UK to sell more and get paid faster."
Intuit Pay is validated by Visa, EMV approved and fully compliant with PCI regulations. It is also supported by Global Payments to enable activation within minutes of applying and real-time merchant set-up.
