I had a Design Show coming up in Somerset house and thought I should be able to take card payments and especially accept credit cards. I did my research, phoned up payleven and half an hour later it was pretty much sorted, says Tom. I have got an iPad and iPhone - it works on both of these devices. There is no monthly cost as it just charges a per transaction fee. So it is great for me as well as the customers - we do not have to worry about bank transfers and cash and it gives us both the guarantee of safety and security.
Payleven is ideal for us as it does not need complicated installation and setup, so we could immediately use it from day one of opening. My husband has a payleven device at our first shop which runs on Android, and I use payleven at our second shop on my iPhone, both tied easily to one account, and now that we accept credit cards we never have to turn away a customer who doesn't have cash. Customers who see us using it are really impressed by the latest technology and they react to it. For me - it just leaves more time to focus on my customers and the business, without having to worry about any problems with payments.
We want to focus our energy on what we are good at, which is training and not spending time on chasing payments. payleven has helped us do exactly that - we can accept credit cards from customers straight after training session and it removes the need to worry about bank transfers or standing orders! Clients also prefer to pay with payleven as it is simple and secure and they are used to paying by Chip & PIN. payleven was quick to set up, the App is simple and intuitive to use and there are no monthly fees. We love it and it really has solved the needs of personal trainers such as myself.
