iZettle

iZettle is a payment processor which comes with free basic POS software called iZettle Go. The software is generic and equally suitable for merchants of all kinds. (iZettle also have a premium offering called iZettle Pro). Compare with Square which has the same business model.

Pricing

For payment processing, iZettle charge 1.75% per transaction, with no contract. The POS software is free.

What makes it different from Square?

Truthfully, not that much. We work more closely with iZettle – but either choice is great if you’re looking for a simple system. If you’re looking to grow in the future, iZettle integrates with a larger number of sophisticated POS apps – including its premium option.

Compatibility

As it’s a payment processor, iZettle needs its own brand card reader. All the hardware listed here should work. The iZettle POS system is an app which can download onto an iPad, iPhone, or Android device. iZettle has a really big range of integrations including most POS if you’re just interested in payments.

Service

Support is available 9-5 on weekdays.

Getting started

iZettle needs its own card reader to work properly but you can download the app for free. For a referral, email hello@storekit.com.

I find izettle ticks all the boxes regarding pos software working seamlessly and enabling swift transactions every time.

Pros

Faultless, easy to setup, enjoyable experience and continuously updated. The software is fully customisable with the chance of including photos and logos etc.

Cons

I cannot find anything at all wrong with the software. Downloaded easily and setup easily done. First class.

Easy to set up, very user friendly.

Pros

Ease of use, not to complicated to set up, very simple to train my colleagues in how to use this system. Customer service in the main has been very helpful.

Cons

So far all is well! Have not had any issues that cannot be fixed by a quick call to the help desk. I have mine on A Samsung tablet operating through mobile networks, this meant I needed a bluetooth printer, this has proved more expensive than I would have liked.

Easy, quick, compact

Pros

IZettle is a compact system that can work on your phone or iPad. It is quick to operate, and it takes minimum space. We like that it looks great too!!

Cons

The only con we can think of is that iZettle has higher rates compared to other companies, but it is still good enough to use.

Excellent

Pros

Great to use, easy to set up and quick to program and update as new products are added. Easy to upload pictures which makes the system easier to use..

Cons

Very little, would be ideal if staff had a separate log in so sales per staff could be tracked and any mistakes traced

A great tool, simply to use and very reliable.

Pros

Simplicity. Small. Prompt payment. Reasonable costs. Great app. Good connection using own phone. More you take, the cheaper it becomes. Can easily add second or more readers.

Cons

Expensive and limited printers available. I have had to replace the charging lead twice in two years.

Great POS system for small businesses! Low transaction fees and very professional looking set up. I love using this with customers and can’t wait to use it again in future!

Cons

I can’t think of any cons as the system works smoothly! Everything has been perfect since day one! Love it.

So far so good!

Pros

It is quick and easy to set up and has competitive rates. It is a well-known brand, so easy to use with customers. Has a portable card machine, so we can use it around the shop.

Cons

The POS does not allow individual staff logins, that I am able to fully control the levels of access and permissions (unless there is a way and I have not found it yet). Creating folders for items was difficult to figure out. For a store was loads of items it a bit long.

Very convenient, customers love it

Pros

I love the convenience of having iZettle. I took the time to review several gadgets and decided on iZettle. It is very quick so doesn't keep customers waiting. Customers love it too.

Cons

I felt the Initial outlay was quite high compared to other machines. I know others do it too but I didn't appreciate having to pay extra for the cradle. I also don't appreciate the fees.

Exactly what we need for our business

Pros

The app is easy to use, it has great inventory tracking and a fantastic UI, and its reporting is quite good.

Cons

Needs staff accounts on basic package and multiple discount support, plus some more flexible options on reporting wouldn't go amiss.

The best thing about iZettle is that it comes with no extra costs, no monthly fee!

Pros

It is sleek looking, very modern. It is fast and accepts all form of payments including invoices and mobile payments Like the simplicity of the POS and the discount feature. Like its portability. Donit choose different coloured dock and reader, I tried it, it does not look as good as the all white :)

Cons

The hardware is really expensive at the start, it does not have any compatible printers except for the £204 pound STAR printer, I searched everywhere, the same with the other accessories. Also, the POS, although easy to use, the design of the folder layout where every product photo is visible in the folder makes it look ugly. A solution would be allowing us to add our own thumbnail to the folder. Another con, is that when I am making a payment manually inserting each price, a 20% vat is automatically added to the receipt, I have to manually change it to 0 for every product.... These are all tiny cons, not that important, the product is actually really good and I recomend it. also The receipt takes up so much paper, I wish we can customise it.

It is less corporate.

Pros

The transparency of the operative costs ie one swipe rate for all transactions on iZettle Go. The cost of the initial purchase. The bolt on options and most importantly the ease of the set up.

Cons

The look and feel of the iZettle hardware when used in conjunction with Apple products

User friendly

Pros

Very easy to use. Software and hardware communicate easily and quickly with each other, I have never had any drops. Nice that you can design your own receipt!

Cons

None. However, would like to have a feature that allows you to track the outgoing and return of an item - similar to a library system.

The iZettle reader is undeniably simple to operate, especially for those small businesses and traders who can’t justify the expense of a traditional card reading machine. From my own and client experience I can highly recommend iZettle if this is your first foray into card transactions.

Pros

The dock, and the range of accessories and supported devices, makes it suitable for a huge range of users and the iZettle basic account will be more than enough for the average small business.

Cons

There is not much not to like, through there online store eCommerce aspect could be more affordable.

Easy to use, really nice design and all cards accepted

Pros

The iZettle reader 2 in black is beautiful! The battery lasts for a long time and the option to place it in a dock is phenomenal! It accepts all types of cards which is very useful if you have international clients.

Cons

Maybe the fee per transaction could have been a fraction lower, but on the other hand.. the reader was available fot a very low introduction price which compensates the overall cost of investment in iZettle
