Many tools in one package
Square, iZettle and SumUp are not just about card readers. Common to them all is their broad offering of integrated business tools connected to the same account, so you can get more done with less effort.
For instance, Square gives you most options for keyed-in (i.e. remote) payments: a free virtual terminal and digital invoices, online store, payment links, and the ability to manually enter card details in the POS app. If this isn’t enough, Square partners with lots of other business tools to expand on features.
iZettle has its own ecommerce platform for a monthly fee, email invoicing, payment links and a cash advance option as an alternative to small-business loans. SumUp gives you mobile payments (QR codes, payment links, SMS payments), invoicing and a basic online store by default and offers a virtual terminal upon request.
All of them provide inventory management features suitable for both retail and hospitality, the most advanced coming from Square, then iZettle. Analytics and sales reports are included by all, with options to export data – or in the case of Square and iZettle: integrate with accounting software too.
