Cash on tap for plumbers

Have your say

A DEVICE that allows companies to take secure card payments via smartphones is to be launched as it was revealed 81 per cent of Edinburgh’s plumbers, electricians and builders are owed up to £5,000 by late or non-paying customers.

From tomorrow, iZettle mini chip-card readers, that turn smartphones and tablets into mobile payments terminals, can be purchased exclusively in digital communications firm EE stores including Edinburgh.

Chief Marketing Officer Gerry McQuade described iZettle as a “revolution” for small businesses and consumers.
