Helping startups make more money with iZettle

We’re always on the look out for the tech and offers that can make our startups’ lives easier, and so we’re thrilled to announce a new partnership with iZettle – providers of card payment solutions for startups and small businesses. Virgin StartUp-funded businesses can now get a contactless payment machine from iZettle for just £49 - and this offer will also be open to members of Virgin Club when it launches.

Having the ability to take card payments is becoming increasingly crucial, no matter what the size of your business. Customers expect it, they appreciate the convenience, and it makes them  likely to spend more. How often have you found yourself limited by only having a couple of coins in your wallet, or irritated by having to find the nearest cash machine when you’re in a hurry?

iZettle is especially designed for smaller businesses, simple to use, and easy to fit into your day-to-day business life thanks to its integration with smartphones and tablets. Rather than pay big fees on big transactions, the structure of many traditional card payment systems,  iZettle is designed so that the more you sell, the less you pay – with fees ranging from 2.75% to 1.5%. There are no fixed monthly fees or any lock-in fees – you just pay when you use iZettle.

Fraud is a concern of many small businesses, and iZettle helps fight this and keep your business safe through automated fraud-detection systems, as well as being fully EMV and PCI DSS compliant. And to top it all off, it takes five minutes to set up and you can stop any time – so you might as well give it a go.

Thanks to iZettle for the generous offer for our startups – here’s to getting more businesses taking payments!
