SumUp has been designed to make accepting, refunding and processing payments simple. Its card readers accept debit, credit and contactless payments and its new remote payment options, including Payment Links, Invoices and Online Store, allow business owners to take payments safely and securely.
There are no monthly fees or contracts for SumUp’s products and features, just a simple fixed percentage fee of 1.69% when accepting a transaction, and as of date of publication, a one-off payment of only £19 for the Air card reader, or £69 for the 3G reader. SumUp aims to democratise payments. It has two million customers, and counting.
Thanks to Starling’s new integration with SumUp it will be even easier for small business customers to keep track of their earnings.
Our integration with SumUp
If you’re a Starling business customer using SumUp for payments and you choose to set up our integration, you’ll be able to see a summary receipt for all your incoming SumUp payouts in the Starling app. For example, if you process £2,100 through SumUp in one week, you’ll be able to see details of what this £2,100 is made up of when this income is transferred to Starling.
The SumUp breakdown in the Starling app includes:
- Total value of payout
- Number of transactions in payout
- Total fees and taxes in payout
- Total tips in payout
- Summary by day if payout covers multiple days
Like all our integrations, our connection with SumUp is enabled by open APIs. The granular detail of the payout breakdown is designed to give customers improved visibility over sales and revenue.
Two apps, working together
“I do everything on my SumUp app - manage refunds, manage transactions, send invoices - it’s so straightforward and easy,” says Charl Ackerman, founder of The Barbery.
Charl, 41, set up his barber shop in Southwark two years ago. He manages his business finances with Starling. “We offer a traditional barbering service but with a very strong emphasis on hair and scalp health and sustainability. We also offer facials,” he says.
All the products used are organic and biodynamic, meaning that no pesticides or fertilisers are used and no animals are harmed when making or testing the products. Packaging consists of amber glass, aluminium or recycled or recyclable plastic.
