    Default Loyalty and Till Systems

    Do any shop owners/workers here use apps rather than loyalty cards and stamps? If so what are they and would you recommend them?

    Regarding tills, I use Izettle at present, but believe that with the amount of card transactions going through, I may be better off with a different provider. Again are there any systems that people love? One feature it really needs to provide is good MI reports

    Thanks

    Square offer a lower rate and next day deposits but their card reader doesn't display the amount of the sale to the customer which I don't like

    If you're doing good amounts then it might be worth looking at a contract type system rather than one of the newfangled providers. We still use izettle as i really like the reporting and POS app but I think there could be cheaper deals around.

    I do like Izettle, but believe there are cheaper options out there. Iím in no rush to change, just wonder what could be worth looking into.

    Do you use the loyalty function on it?

    Didn't even know it had a loyalty function - seems a bit complicated.

    Square are 1.75% which is a good hit lower than izettle, think a contract could get below that again though.

    Just checked and izettle now say they're flat rate, I used to get emails from them saying I'd qualified for a better rate due to volume of sales etc. Wonder if that's changed recently.

    I've heard good things about SumUp but not from people specifically with cafes. I'm getting charged 2% for iZettle fees on the standard system - are you using iZettle Pro?

    From a coffee shop startup group discussion a while ago.
    Apparently the Good Till Co are worth a look and a coffee shop owner / consultant said that Nobly POS is a good choice v iZettle as it’s a fixed monthly fee rather than a % of sales so there will be a crossover point where iZettle charges you more. Also Nobly has lots more integrations and back office functions that will save you time and money.

    Last month I had a refund as hit the target, so believe I still get better rates. Iíll take a look when I get home

    if your volume of sales are over £8000 each month which is not a crazy amount, they can offer you a discounted rate. Do contact them, still won't be as competitive as the high street ingenico style devices but theres a compromise with the software side and ease of use vs charges.
