Adding to the existing range of iZettle card readers currently available the company has this week launched a new device priced at £79 that supports Apple Pay as well as other contactless payments services.
Even though Apple Pay is not yet available within the UK its is expected to be announced at WWDC later this year and be available to use by UK residents very soon.
The iZettle Card Reader Pro Contactless is available to purchase from today from select partners and will soon be available to purchase throughout the UK from from the beginning of June and will be priced at £79. iZettle company co-founder and chief executive officer Jacob de Geer explained :
“The launch will make iZettle the first company of its kind to offer small businesses support for Apple Pay and contactless payments,”-“Apple really nailed it with Apple Pay, both for the new Watch and the iPhone 6… I’m convinced this service will spur a shift in payment behaviour away from plastic, and I can’t wait for Apple to roll out this service to markets outside of the US.
iZettle readers work with MasterCard, Visa and American Express cards, and transaction fees start at 2.75%, falling to 1.5% “
