They’re complete business solutions
Square, Zettle and SumUp are not just about card readers. Common to them all is their broad offering of integrated business tools connected to the same account, so you can get more done with less effort.
All of them have inventory management features for both retail and hospitality, the most advanced coming from Square.
Analytics and sales reports are included by all, with options to export data – or in the case of Square and Zettle, integrate with accounting software like Xero and QuickBooks. SumUp cannot integrate with accounting software.
Square can connect with lots of external business tools, for example ecommerce platforms, marketing software and scheduling systems. Zettle only connects with a few accounting systems and ecommerce builders. SumUp has a closed system relying on its own features instead of integrations.
Zettle is the only one to have a cash advance option as an alternative to small-business loans, reserved for users with a solid history of card payments.
