Bakers to bricklayers. Milliners to maids. If they’re using iZettle to sell their products or services, the social payments company wants to make sure its customers have everything needed to take credit, debit, and cash transactions wherever they operate their business.
For iZettle users who need a cash drawer or an alternative to email receipts, the company’s Chip & Signature and new Chip & PIN card readers for iPhones and iPads can now wirelessly connect to Star Micronics’ range of MFi certified desktop and mobile printers.
“This competitive solution is perfect for small and growing businesses as well as the larger retailers who want to add the flexibility of mobile POS solutions to their POS infrastructure,” said Annette Tarlton, Marketing Director, Star Micronics EMEA.
In addition, iZettle has updated its free sales overview tools with easy-to-read graphs, sortable by year, month or week. The new metric boxes display revenue, top selling products, transactions, average payment volume and returning customers.
“The new receipt printer and cash drawer functionality and sales overview tools address many frequent requests from our users,” said Jacob de Geer, co-founder and CEO of iZettle. “As we’re now adding 3,000 new users per day in seven countries across Europe – and are about to expand to new markets – it’s important for us to give them what they need to intelligently and affordably run their business.”
