Accepting card payments with Voice Connect
Secure and fast credit card processing from Voice Connect
COLOURED SCREEN CHIP AND PIN MACHINES
Voice Connect have partnered with Optomany, offering the latest in card machine technology at affordable prices. Our easy application process means that your machine will be delivered quickly, enabling you to accept face-to-face payments within a matter of days.
To accept card payments face-to-face or when the customer isn’t present, you will require a merchant account. Merchant accounts are offered by well-known banks and building societies, as well as some companies you may never have heard of. A merchant account serves as an intermediary between your customer’s personal account and your business account; it authorises payment between the two, and then collects and releases the money.
BENEFITS OF ACCEPTING CARD PAYMENTS
The benefits of accepting credit card payments have been widely reported in recent years, with an ongoing trend of cash based businesses now accepting card transactions. Some of these include taxi firms, car park facilities and schools, to name but a few. Accepting card payments has reduced dramatically in price in recent years, as mainstream banks compete with organisations such as iZettle and PayPal. Here are some other benefits of having an affordable card payment facility.
Accessibility – not all customers carry cash, having a card machine gives them payment options and means that you won’t have to turn anyone away.
Safety – Reducing the amount of cash held on premises
Time saving – the admin hours associated with accepting cash and depositing to bank accounts can really stack up. Card machine reporting takes the stress out of cash related admin duties.

HOW MUCH WILL A CARD MACHINE COST?
The majority of clients choose to rent a card machine on a monthly basis; prices start from as little as £15 per month. The machines work with a number of merchant account providers, who will charge a percentage rate for each transaction taken. These rates are ordinarily cheaper for debit cards and more expensive for credit or business cards. At Voice Connect we work alongside merchant account providers in the UK to bring our customers competitive pricing. Our quotes are tailor made to suit your business requirements.

Voice Connect have a lengthy history of integration and bespoke coding. Our in house based tech team can work with you to integrate the chip and pin machine with your back end systems or CRM. This is becoming increasingly common and effectively streamlining the way businesses manage accepting payments. To speak to our experts in a little more depth about this, get in touch today.
