Take card payments easily

Payment machines used to be big, clunky and dominated by banks looking for big fees for shops or retailers.

All that has changed with new players like sumup. They have made payment machines smaller and portable and the fees a very small with no upfront costs.

Unsurprisingly, sumup is the choice of many small traders or self employed people working for themselves, like hairdressers, small shop owners and car boot sellers.

With most of us paying by card you'll make more from you side hustle if you can take payment this way
