iZettle launches in the UK on Apple iOS and Android

iZettle, which offers a plug-in card reader that can turn smartphone into a credit card payment terminal, has launched officially in the UK. The company introduced a beta service to the UK earlier this year.

It’s also confirmed that the service will be available on Android as well as Apple iOS devices.

The iZettle service first launched in Sweden last summer and is now also available in Norway, Denmark, Finland and Germany as well as the United Kingdom. Users can take debit or credit card payments securely via an app and a plug-in chip-card reader.

iZettle’s UK launch is in partnership with EE, which is selling the card readers in its stores.

We spoke to iZettle CEO Jacob de Geer at Mobile World Congress in February. You can listen to the interview (which starts after around 12 minutes) via the built-in audio player below or by downloading the MP3 file.

I personally prefer mPowa (www.mpowa.com). I think mPowa's strategy and technology is superior. Just my two cents.

Did iZettle already settle their issues with Visa? I don't think so. I will just stick with mPowa (www.mpowa.com) which by the way is compatible to all credit card carriers. I agree with you Duff.

From izettle.com: "Which cards can I accept with iZettle? You can accept Visa, MasterCard, American Express and Diners Club debit and credit cards with iZettle. Visa transactions work slightly differently."
