Card processing



New to cards

Accepting card payments with Sporting Pay is simple. There are a whole host of reasons to start accepting card payments in your business today. The number of debit card payments overtook the number of payments made by cash in 2017 — for the first time ever according to UK Finance, a year earlier than anticipated.


The Average Transaction Value of a business is typically increased by between 25% and 40% when card payments are introduced and consumer behaviour and spending patterns indicate that businesses that don't accept card payments, could well get left behind.  What's more, accepting card payments means less cash and cheques to deposit, so you're likely to incur fewer bank fees.


Whether you're a start up business, online entrepreneur or want a convenient way for customers to pay, Sporting Pay have the solution. With a short 12-24 month contract options and a pricing package to suit to you, get your FREE quote today.

Types of Card Machines

There are three main types of card machines – countertop, portable and mobile. Countertop terminals work from a fixed location and are ideal for businesses where transactions are processed from a sales counter. Portable terminals use WiFi/Bluetooth technology to process payments around your premises within a range of 100m. Mobile terminals have a pre-installed SIM card and can take payments from anywhere in the UK as long as there is mobile phone network coverage.
