What cards can I accept?
At present, only Visa and Mastercard cards are accepted. This includes credit and debit, consumer and commercial cards. We
are currently completing work to support American Express cards, which we expect will be completed shortly.
Can I take payments online too?
When using our Chip & PIN terminal device, you may only accept payment from a cardholder in a face-to-face manner, i.e.
with the customer physically present. We can also enable you to take payments securely online using our Virtual
Terminal. Please contact us for further information.
Why can't I charge a surcharge?
In July 2017 the UK government announced new rules, as part of the implementation of the revised EU Payment Services Directive
(PSDII), prohibiting the use of surcharges when taking card payments. You can

possible in certain cases. If you would like to accept payments in another currency, please contact us.
