I was wondering if any one had any experience of using the above units ( Worldpay, CabCard, Verifone, paytaxi, cabvision etc )


I’m not interested in any of the app based units (izettle etc)

I know your not interested in iZettle but I find it’s very good, so why are you not interested?

I probably phrased it wrong, I’ve been speaking to a few of the other drivers and I’m probably going to choose either iZettle or SumUp. I think I know enough about these I just wanted opinions on the stand alone units before I made a decision. Does anyone favour SumUp over iZettle ? (iZettle seems to be winning at the moment)

I use iZettle and have been very happy with it for many years.

Apart from cost comparisons, my issue with the stand alone units is the sheer size of them. Like most, I have limited space in my car so the iZettle reader is perfect in the centre console.

Square. Money into my account the next working day. 1.75% commission. No monthly fee.. what’s not to like?

IZettle is also 1.75% sumup is the cheapest 1.69%
IZettle takes 2 to 3 working days to reach your bank square is 1 to 2 working days
Ok not much to choose between them, I chose iZettle because it has a proper card reader, the customer
puts there PIN number into the reader, with square you use your phone.

Also iZettle takes the most different types of card payments and also lets the customers tip you.
Sumup doesn’t.

I've still got izettle but have moved on to sumup cos it's cheaper 1.75% as opposed to 2.7%,plus it seems to turn itself off after transactions thereby saving battery,very good.

That's what the iZettle does, and I've always paid 1.75%.

Did you have an old one?

Get one that charges 1.75%.

Don't give them any more of your money than necessary.
