So you’re new to card payments…? Here’s what you need to know!

Setting up credit and debit card payments for the first time can seem daunting – especially if you’re self-employed or growing a fledgling business. The wide range of card payment providers, merchant accounts and payment terminals are enough to confuse a rocket scientist…not to mention weighing up all the different contracts on offer as well.

But have no fear, 123Send has 20 years’ experience guiding businesses like yours to their perfect card payment solution.
