Many businesses don’t need to accept card payments all year round, so payment terminal providers offer a range of flexible, short term hire packages from 1 day to 6 months, without the need to sign up to a lengthy lease contract. This is perfect for events, exhibition traders, seasonal businesses, emergency trading and start-ups which can simply pay for the days they use. Terminals can be delivered ready to go, with required accessories and technical support. Remember that a merchant account is still required for any trader accepting card payments and a one-off fee is sometimes required to set up the short term contract.
