There are many reasons why a company will choose to rent a card machine on a short term hire; perhaps you are a new business, and want to test out a product in an exhibition setting and need a short term rental so you don’t want the added burden of committing to any long term agreements. Choosing a short term rental and offering customers the option to pay using a debit or credit card, will allow you to gauge how your product(s) are being received before deciding on a longer term strategy.
Perhaps you are a start up, and you want to deliver flexible ways for their customers to pay for items. More and more people are looking to pay for goods and services on debit and credit cards and this figure will continue to rise. The introduction of contactless technology has also greatly benefited both customers and merchants in the way they are able to pay and receive payments.
