SumUp has a broad presence in Europe and was the first mobile card reader to cross the Atlantic. Does that mean Square has met its match? For the payment part, SumUp more than measures up. The single all-in-one reader leads with its technology and ease of use. As for advanced features and integration possibilities – not yet.
That being said, recent developments in socially distanced payments like mobile payment links, gift cards, invoicing tools and key-in transactions are signs that SumUp is keeping up with the world, so it will be interesting to see how fast new features are added over the next year.
But it really depends on what you need. If you are primarily looking for a way to get paid rather than, say, schedule appointments, manage inventory and integrate with payroll, SumUp wins the prize for being simple and cheap, hands down.
