With Christmas just around the corner and card payments increasingly replacing cash payments, a mobile card reader could be key to boosting your sales.It really pays for small and micro enterprises to keep up with the times and have card machines at the ready to take payments - or else you risk losing custom during the peak trading season.However, accepting payments through traditional card terminals can be costly - with monthly terminal hire alone costing up to £40. The good news though is the advent of mobile card readers has reduced costs.They do away with the monthly charge and can be purchased for an upfront cost of as little as £29.They're pretty nifty too - offering a way of trading on the go by allowing businesses to take payments immediately and securely via Wifi or mobile data, without having to handle cash.It can also be argued they make a business seem more professional and credible to customers.But with so many gadgets now available, each boasting unique features and charging structures, it can be tricky to work out which may suit your businesses.To help you on your way, This is Money has teamed up Stephen Hart, chief executive of price comparison website for credit/debit card processing costs Cardswitcher, and Emma Jones, founder of small business support group Enterprise Nation, to create a list of the best card readers on the market. Here's how they compare.This list is in no particular order. Scroll down for a comparison table of the card readers.You can get your hands on an iZettle reader for £29 (plus VAT) until the end of November. The price reverts back to £59 plus VAT thereafter. When it comes to transaction costs, the firm levies a flat fee of 1.75 per cent on each instance.There is no contract with iZettle and customers can change their pricing plan that covers extra services (see below) at any time.iZettle offers a range of paid-for commerce tools from access to capital with iZettle Advance to an invoicing service. Here are some of the most noteworthy extras:iZettle Advance: iZettle offers credit to its customers in the form of advances, to be repaid with each card transaction.iZettle Go: A free point-of-sale app that allows customers to manage their sales and labour.The iZettle reader is a solid choice. Its transaction fee is one of the cheapest on market, and payments are deposited into users' accounts within two business days.The highs: The device most notably accepts a vast array of cards - more than the others in the list - and comes with a range of add-ons to grow your business.The lows: The iZettle readers can't accept payments when the card is not present - so you can't take payments over the phone - and the device can't be used abroad.There is a one-off charge of £35 (incl VAT) for the card reader until 30 November, after which time it will revert to the normal selling price of £75 (incl VAT). And the cost per transaction ranges from 2.75 per cent to as low as 1.5 per cent (when monthly transactions amount to £15,000 or more). The charge is 3.4 per cent + 20p for transactions where the card is not present.PayPal Here also offers integrated software tailored to specific industries including retail, transport, trade and health and beauty. For example, its range of partner accessories includes the 'Complete Cab' bundle - a TfL-approved payment system for mini-cabs.PayPal may be one of the best-known payment processing brands but its mobile card reader is expensive compared to the others - and that's before1

In this episode, I share with you my review of the latest Paypal Wireless Card Reader, which you can use to assist you with your handmade business.
I have been trading on market stalls on and off for 7-8 years now and I've experienced a lot in terms of where to sell my products and what works best for selling my products. Having a card machine is very essential to any business. They could potentially determine you making any sales at your event. There have been many times, where customer dont have physical cash on them, I tell them I take card and they're relived to have not missed out on a sale.
