Many businesses come to the point where they have to make a decision about what type of contract to get into with a payment terminal supplier. It could be that they are starting out, or it could be that they are an established business coming to the end of their current contract term. As experts when it comes to credit card terminals, leases and contracts, it made sense to us to look at the reasons why small businesses should consider short term portable terminal hire.

Your trade is seasonal

If your trade is seasonal, then long term credit card terminal rental may not be the best option for you. Short term contactless terminal lease keeps your obligation and your costs to a minimum. It means you have flexibility to scale up when you need to without getting into long term arrangements. You need to move your business to a new location on a temporary basis. You need to move your business to a new location such as a trade fair, expo or market, but only for a few days. The ideal solution is a short term terminal hire, perfect for being able to take payments on the move when long term merchant services may not be suitable.

Your business is just starting out.

If your business is new, then it can be a scary thought to tie yourself into a long term arrangement with a payment terminal service provider.
