Payleven handsetKonstantin Wolff, Co-founder and Managing Director of payleven “We see a significant rise in contactless payments and ultimately an increasing demand for a cost-efficient card reader for European business owners. Contactless payment technology opens the market further by making non-cash payments more relevant for segments with high frequency, low ticket transactions, like bakeries. We are happy to further advance the democratization of card payments by extending new technology to SMEs.”

payleven’s card reader solution has no monthly fees and no contractual lock-in. Beyond card payments, the solution provides tools that help business owners simplify their daily business, such as sales reporting and the option to email customers their receipts.
