Distinct options for remote payments
SumUp gives you several remote payment options: a virtual terminal for over-the-phone payments, Mobile Payments including QR codes, SMS payments and payment links, email invoices and a basic Online Store. All but the virtual terminal cost 2.5% per transaction and can be managed through SumUp App.
You have to apply for SumUp’s virtual terminal, as there are stricter eligibility requirements for that. It accepts Visa, Mastercard, Maestro, American Express, Diners Club and Discover via any browser logged into the SumUp dashboard. Virtual terminal transactions through SumUp cost 2.95% + 25p per transaction.
Although iZettle does not have a virtual terminal, invoicing and payment links (charged 2.5% per payment) are available to all their users, plus an ecommerce platform for a monthly cost of £29 + VAT.
With iZettle invoicing, customers receive automatic reminders if they haven’t paid the bill yet. Payment links do not contain customer-specific information, but are instead one-time links sent by text, email or a social media platform.
