iZettle starts selling chip-card readers online in Sweden

A SEK 200 voucher

Social payments firm, iZettle, is releasing its mini chip-card reader that allows individuals and small businesses to take credit card payments with an iPhone or iPad in Sweden from next Monday 2nd July (view press release). Priced at SEK 199 excluding VAT the reader will be available on the iZettle website and will come with a SEK 200 voucher towards iZettle transaction fees. The reader will also be available to purchase at Telia shops across Sweden.

Other than turning the iPhone/iPad into a mobile credit terminal, the app also enables the creation of custom product menus, like touch-screen PoS systems used globally, to process multi-product sales in a single transaction.

In the last 10 months we’ve given out more than 50,000 readers to small businesses and individuals free of charge,” said Jacob de Geer, CEO and co-founder of iZettle. “[The reader is] designed to ensure users’ card details always remain safe and free from harm but this comes with a price albeit a small one. With the voucher, we’re offering what we think is a pretty painless way to cover those costs.
