Credit Card Machines for Taxi Drivers - no contract, no commitment, no monthly fees!

August 27, 2014

So then you run a taxi, you know that taking credit cards will help but lets face it you do not want to commit to a two or three year contract, pay monthly whether you use it or not, fill in pages of complicated paperwork, set aside time to meet an account manager after which they will want you generally to pay for the machine you need.

Not to mention that credit card readers these days tend to be big fat bulk things you can't fit inside you pocket and that will roll around your cab as you drive, well until now.

Welcome to Spiderweb Online Marketing LTD, this week we are reviewing the iZettle a powerful product taking many taxi companies and drivers around the country by storm, but new enough to add a real unique edge to your business. iZettle boast that it has solved the above situation and dilemma by creating something simple, sleek and convenient with no contract or commitment.

So as a taxi company imagine being able to advertise that you can take cards? If this adds only a 5% advantage to the number of customers who use you it will make a huge difference. Customers would find life much easier if you can simply take card payments... but sadly i guess you currently dont.

Not anymore...

iZettle is a unique product that allows businesses including taxi companies and drivers that are small or one-man/ woman bands to fleets allowing them to purchase for a low price a mobile credit card reader that connects securely to their mobile or tablet (apple or android - credit card reader for iPhone or iPad for example) and the customer simply then puts their card in and types their PIN into the sleek pocket sized reader which then emails a receipt and authorises the payment.

The money will then be automatically deposited into the bank account of your choice within 3-4 working days. On route the transaction fee of between 1.50% - 2.75% is deducted and the remaining balance deposited in account, no hassle, no fuss, no bills at the end of the month... simples!

The account management system also allows you to to enter cash payments alongside the card ones so you can use this as a basic inventory and accounting system making life much easier on the move for the mobile business while having the security standard PCI DSS - basically the same security as the chunky readers you see in the shops 24 hours a day - this helps keep your business safe from scrutiny and secure against threats and challenges.

It is also useful for people who always end up spending lots of money they earn because they get paid only in cash! When money is put straight into your bank you are less likely to spend it. You also do not need to get your customer to go to the cashpoint either.

Ask yourself - will this make me unique in my day to day running as a taxi driver? If it will then go for it and make sure you put it all over your website! I take credit and debit cards! Woohoo! Sorry... our spiderweb gets a bit too excited sometimes.

So what are the things that should interest you?

- Chip & PIN security

- Fully PCI DSS compliant

- Accepts all major credit cards

- No monthly charges

- No contract period

- No Commitment

- Totally pay as you go card reader

- Setup with your device in one minute or less

- Designed to fit in your pocket while looking corporate and professional

- Money directly deposited into your nominated bank account within 3-4 business days

- Transaction fees taken before depositing in your account meaning no end of month fees

- Fees only charged on successful transactions - declined cards will not generate a fee

- Reader comes with full manual and window 'we take card' sticker/ decal

- Receipt emailed instantly for customers - better than paper which can get lost or dissolved in the washing machine!

So if you want to add something unique to your business then we recommend iZettle, plenty of other companies offer something similar with less security and that do look cheap but in our opinion, iZettle is the European leader in mobile card readers that are fully PAYG.

They charge 59 inc VAT on their website but while writing this review we requested a discount for our readers and they have supplied a 10 off discount just for our readership so please feel free to get your own to try.Simply work through the process of easily setting up a new account and then at the end it will automatically apply the code.Much love!
