1. Compare features and charges
Mobile point-of-sale systems vary considerably when it comes to functionality and charges.
For example, most accept contactless payments, as well as chip and PIN, and usually Apple Pay and other mobile wallets. Some can work for cardholder not present (CNP) transactions – ideal for food delivery services, for example – while others lack this option.
Then there are the commission charges, which are sometimes just a straight percentage, but sometimes more complex, including ongoing monthly fees.
