How the SumUp 3G Printer works

The SumUp 3G with Printer is formed of a receipt printer cradle that works in conjunction with a SumUp 3G card reader.

When the printer-free 3G terminal is in the cradle, it becomes a chunkier, but portable, card machine with receipt printer.

You can also use the 3G reader on its own, but then it won’t be able to print receipts.

Moreover, the 3G Printer functions as a charger for the card reader battery. When the card reader is placed in the printing/charging cradle, both the terminal and printer will be charging. If the card reader is not placed in the cradle, only the printer is charging.

When not coupled with the card reader, the 3G Printer doesn’t have any other functions. It doesn’t print receipts with a wireless connection.

Costs and payouts

The SumUp 3G + Printer costs £129 + VAT through our link (normal price £169).

Note: If you already have a SumUp 3G card reader, you can buy the printer separately for £109 + VAT.

There is no delivery or setup fee with SumUp, so these are the only upfront costs.
