SumUp’s 3G card machine is for those who want a simple way to get started accepting cards without any extra features or equipment. With this device, you enter the transaction value directly on the terminal, put in the chip card or tap the contactless card, and it will process the payment over the mobile network or WiFi.
SumUp 3G accepts Visa, V Pay, Mastercard, Maestro, American Express, Diners Club, Discover and UnionPay as well as Apple Pay and Google Pay.
It’s a pay-as-you-go system – you purchase the card reader, then pay only one fixed transaction fee for all transactions through the machine. There’s no contract or other fees to commit to, making this an economical solution for price-sensitive businesses, sporadic sales or startups that can’t predict where they’ll be beyond the next few months, or just those who need a mobile device to take cards where the customer is.
