What is a card payment machine?

Card machine. Card reader. Swipe machine. Speed point. They all mean the same thing – a device that allows you to accept card payments. And Yoco has the best card machines for small business owners!

Businesses just like yours use our card payment machines all over Mzansi. Whether you call yours a card reader, speed point, a swipe machine, or “the blue thing that people use to pay”, Yoco card machines power the everyday hustle across South Africa.

Cash is no longer king. A card payment machine is the solution

A whopping 75% of South Africans favour cards over cash. This means that if you want to, ahem, cash in a card payment machine is essential.

As customers ditch cash for a number of reasons: germs (thanks, Covid-19), inconvenience, safety, or a combination of all three, you need to be able to cater to a card (or phone) wielding customer – or risk losing out.

As a merchant, opting to add a card payment machine into the mix means that you can:

Accept payments safely

Less cash in your pocket (and more in your bank account) is the safer, smarter way of doing business.

Cater to more customers

Grow your business faster by tapping into the power of a card payment machine. Level up, the Yoco way.

Keep Covid-19 safe

Money is dirty. Our card payment machines make sure you and your customers are protected while you get paid.

Our card payment machines are more than just a way to accept payments

Running a business is hard work. But we’ve made it that little bit easier thanks to our Yoco App – free with either the Neo or Go card readers. Manage inventory, review sales history, and get insight into your best-selling items. What’s more, when you buy one of our card machines, you automatically get access to our three online payment solutions, so if you have remote clients or sell products on social media, you can still get paid.

Yoco card payment machines work for you

You work hard for your money, which is why you shouldn’t have to pay a monthly rental fee just to be able to accept card payments. Buy our Go or Neo card readers, and only pay a percentage of your sales. That’s it. We’ll never charge you to withdraw your money, ever. Plus, transaction fees go down the more you sell. If sales stop, so do your payments
