Intuit Pay, which launched on iOS in March, is now also available on Android, giving even more businesses and anyone selling products or services an easy and low cost way to accept credit and debit card payments.
Intuit Pay enables users to take card payments on the go as well as from home or office. It includes a free app and pocket-sized chip & PIN card reader for face-to-face payments and a secure website for online payments from home or office, ideal for taking card payments over the phone.
With a simple application process, users can get activated and ready to take their first online payment within minutes of applying (subject to status and credit check) and receive the card reader in the post within a few days. There are no monthly fees or commitment - just a low fee of 2.75 per cent per transaction. The card reader is currently available for £49 (exc. VAT).
"Intuit Pay is already helping thousands of small businesses in the UK to sell more and get paid faster," said Mark Little, vice president and U.K. managing director for Intuit. "Customers love the speed, simplicity and security of card payments with Intuit Pay and now with availability on Android we are pleased to be able to extend the benefits to many more businesses."
David Waterfield, owner of DavesinPlymouth.co.uk, who has been using the Android app as part of the pilot, said "Intuit Pay has been fantastic and has allowed me to grow my business by accepting card payments at events across the country. The online application was very easy and I got the card reader within a few days. Most of my customers prefer to pay by card because of the security, so having the Intuit Pay app ready anytime and anywhere on my Android phone is a fantastic experience."
Intuit Pay provides a safe and secure method for card payments and is validated by Visa, EMV approved and fully compliant with PCI regulations. It is also supported by Global Payments to enable activation within minutes of applying and real-time merchant set-up.
Chris Davies, Managing Director, Global Payments, said: "Global Payments is committed to offering merchants of all sizes access to new payments technologgies to help them grow their business. Our partnership with Intuit Pay has helped us to further this ambition and bring card payments to a wide audience of micro businesses and their customers at an affordable price."
Intuit Pay builds on Intuit's 10 years of leadership in small business payments. In the U.S., the company's desktop, Web and mobile payment offerings currently process more than $37 billion annually.
