Card and mobile payments are a usual headache for many merchants, especially in our growing cashless society. But fortunately, there exist solutions, like SumUp, whose goal is to make life easier for you as well as to provide a seamless experience for your customers.

During the last years, Sumup has become a leader credit card processor company in Europe thanks to their unique device that allows small merchants to accept card payments anywhere.

Such is their success that today SumUp is used by tens of thousands satisfied merchants in countries like Germany, the U.S., and Brazil. Numbers that keep increasing as they announce their expansion to 15 new European countries, which makes a total of 31 countries where they operate. This only reflects the wealth of the cashless ecosystem in Europe and in the world, with more and more business owners taking part of it.

This is the famous Air reader that has launched the European company to the top:


These are technically 2 different readers: the classic Air reader, used among all European countries (Left picture); and the US version (Right image), a PIN pad-less credit card reader that accommodates to its market expectations.
