The amount you pay for your card payment terminals will vary depending on the length of the contract, the type of terminals and connection, number of terminals, level of customer service and technical support, additional accessories and any financial software included. Rental starts from just a few pounds a month for a basic dial up package, up to around £20 a month for a higher range model with accessories, servicing, technical support and consumables. Short term daily hire can start from around £10 a day. Many payment terminal providers offer cash back or free months to new customers or waiver any set up fees. To buy a single, good quality terminal on its own, without any kind of package or contract, would start at around £40.
