Top Tips :: Card payments at markets

  1. Clearly advertise the fact that you accept credit cards.  Ask your provider to supply you with a sign or create one yourself - see below.
  2. If your device does not issue a physical receipt, always make sure that your customer provides you with an mobile phone number or email address where the receipt can be issued.
  3. Keep a record of all your transactions, don't simply rely on the the device.  You'll need this information if someone disputes a transaction.
  4. Remember to have your device fully charged and you have a way of charging your device without an electricity socket.
  5. Remember not everyone trusts technology, always find out where the closest ATM is.
  6. Do your research and shop around to find the right service for you.  Remember to reveiw contract periods, monthly fees, transaction percentage and transaction fees.
  7. Think about setting a minimum spend or surcharge for transactions to avoid unnecessary transaction fees. You should advertise clearly that there is a minimum spend or surcharge.  Refer to Lifehacker's article for further information on this issue.
  8. Bring along your devices' Trouble Shooting Guide.
