Why use a card reader in church?
Many people no longer carry cash, and so it's becoming increasingly important to provide other ways for people to give. One solution is getting a card reader for your church, which works alongside a smart phone or tablet.
With a card reader, your church community can choose the way they want to give money. Whether it’s via Chip and Pin, or a tap of their card or phone, you’re enabling people to give in a way that suits them.
It doesn’t stop with donations. With a card reader people can pay for wedding fees, hall hire, concert tickets, or even just tea and coffee.
Following a 6-month national trial, the National Church’s Parish Buying service have contracted two card reader companies to provide special deals for churches: SumUp and iZettle.
Now is a good time to consider getting a card reader, as SumUp Air Card reader is available for just £19 and new joiners can enjoy 0% fees for up to £250 of transactions for 90 days. You have to join between 1 May to 30 June to receive the free transactions.
In order to qualify, you need to:
The free transactions will expire once you have reached the £250 transaction limit and are valid for 90 days after sign up; e.g. if you join SumUp on 15 April, your credit will be valid until 15 September.
