It’s been brilliant and I would highly recommend
The options with this are endless. You can take payments with all cards (including AMEX), you can also take payment by Apple Pay! It’s quick easy to use and it’s aesthetcially pleasing to work with also. Battery lasts forever.
It would also be good to have a slightly more substantial unit for those of us that would like to use the device at a stationary location.
I have a photography Buisness and we setup in public spaces and charge customers to have their portraits printed.
iZettle is very easy to setup. It works across my iPad, iPhone and android phone. The latest card reader handles contactless payments and the transactions are very fast. All you need is a tablet/phone with a data/wifi connection and the card reader to start taking payments
There is very little I dislike about the software other than It would be great if you could create accounts for staff and block them doing functions like applying discounts/refunds. Other than that the system is pretty fool proof
For years we have had a traditional setup with the standard looking cash registry connected to a card reader. This setup required us to control the transactions and verify it physically on paper before scanning it and sending it to our bookkeeper.
Today we are enjoying our new iZettle card reader with the optional receipt printer and cash drawer. All of this is running through our iPad. Installing it was a breeze. The software (application) on the iPad is intuitive and easy to understand - and compared to our previous system - all the transactions and summaries are saved and accessible by anyone you decide (like our bookkeeper).
Intuitive. Easy to understand. Cheap. Flexible.
Needs more options in the app to customize. A bit high starting fees.
Obviously they never talked people from from restaurant, bar or other gastronomy management. Even if they say they are a POS for gastronomy, they are programming something totally different.
All the reports you need are very difficult to find, or not available at all - most of the reports are not necessary at all.
We tested the program very intense and gave a lot of necessary feedback - but it dissapeared into the void.
The whole experience with iZettle Pro left us shaking our heads in disbelief.
STAY AWAY - it will eat a lot of your time.
They iZettle Go version is great - this review is about the iZettle Pro version
- very bad programming
- no helpful support
- no real time data available (you have to wait till the next evening till the program actualize data)
- if you use 2 or more terminals, they do not synchronize - this is ridiculous
- the also issued a iZettle PRO APP - it has no functions at all. You only see a total sum.
- they don't give you any information about their fee
- in general: no tax authority in the world will approve to this software!
(most of the programming worked in iZettle Go, but not in their professional version (where you have to pay per terminal).
I use iZettle to take card payments whenever needed. There is no fixed fee which makes it worthwhile if you only need to use it once in a while.
The thing i think that can be added/improved is a printer on the card machine.
Great for those once in a while clients that want to pay by card
Don't use it often enough to really find something i don't like
The integrated Pos app is very useful and akin to carrying a mobile register.
Rates are competitive compared to other companies.
Customer support is slow, presumably this improves if you are willing to pay extra for the premium option.
