    Are you going to take ALL payments Remotely ALWAYS? I'd Suggest that where you are, the opportunity may come up to get ad hoc work where you'll need to take payment via a card reader. It only take one missed opportunity for the thing to more than pay for itself?

    Terms of the transport licence are payment in advance (to differentiate from the taxis!). The only time I've known people pay as they get into the bus is when an arrangement has been made to pay by cash. I certainly wouldn't want to be taking the bank's card reader with me anywhere, its HUGE! But I can see the benefits of having a small paypal type reader to hand. Maybe

    https://www.eventbrite.co.uk/

    My wife uses eventbrite for some of the courses she runs and while I've not looked at it in detail seems to work fairly well and she hasn't had any issues with it so far.

    Well, I had to go to the bank to sort out something else and my personal account advisor rushed out to talk to me about insurance and could I spend time to talk to the business account lady about this.

    Turns out that they 'can' do a link through my website to allow customers to pay by card direct into my account Funny how mentioning that Credit Agricole have this facility and suddenly I don't have to pay huge money for a card reader I don't want! LOL LOL

    So I now have a load of forms to fill in and bring back down. All in French But the information is on the Online Banking set up and that is in English, so I should be able to work it out

    Phew!! LOL

    It's quite easy to add online payment to your website, via PayPal. Standard small business fees are 20p + 3.4% per transaction. Your customer doesn't need a PayPal account.
