About SumUp

We believe that every business should have access to affordable, easy-to-use payment solutions, no matter their size. Back in 2012, SumUp was founded by a small team with one goal in mind – to create a world where small business owners can be successful doing what they love. Today, over 3 million businesses rely on SumUp to get paid.

We give access to financial services to the millions of businesses that are considered too small for most providers. They’re as much as 10 times smaller than the smallest businesses that would be targeted by banks and traditional providers. What started out as one card reader has now turned into a range of readers, multiple remote payment solutions such as Invoices, Gift Cards, Payment Links and so much more.

From our quick and easy signup process to accepting your first payment, we want to make things simple. That means no fixed costs, hidden fees, no bureaucracy and no surprises. By taking the hassle out of getting paid, we enable small business owners to do what they love.

I've a small photographic company that is emerging and I'm looking for the right tools to accompany it in its growth. Having an administrator of invoices, forms and budgets, expenses that also allows me to have a register of clients and products is something that would do well to my company, so I am evaluating the purchase of this service. I think it offers many benefits and at a good price.

Pros

The interface is intuitive and it's very friendly. It's easy to use, everything is very organized. Immediately after placing the country in which I reside, the exact amount of the tax charged in the country is placed. You can modify the templates of the emails that customers will receive with the invoice data. It allows to have a client registry, saves predetermined messages. It allows to take an expense management. . I can have a list of products The truth is that I like it a lot. I'm looking at the trial version and it's convincing me to have it in my business. The prices are quite accessible and from what I see you can easily climb if you have a small company like mine.

Cons

So far everything I've seen and tried from the software I really like, including the price since it's very accessible.

I've had a very good overall experience with Sumup. There has not been any issues with bank transfers, and it's a great tool to both take payments and keep track of cash sales at markets. After considering several options, I'm glad I went with SumUp and have been recommending it to other small business owners. For the low cost, it is a no-brainer investment.

Pros

The price is great for what you get. You pay a one-time price for the card reader, a small transaction fee for sales, and there is no subscription fee (something that is becoming more of a rarity these days). Sometimes you can even find a discount code for the reader or get a referral code from a friend. I have had my card reader for almost 6 years and it still works perfectly.

Cons

Sometimes the card reader will try to connect to other card readers in the area or struggle to connect when taking payment. This happens in maybe 1 in 20 transactions, and most customers are understanding about it. Still, it can be a bit annoying.

It's really fast, easy to use and since I am using it, I really like to write invoices. Before I did code my own system to create pdf invoices automatically, then I used word-files and an excel sheet to write down anything I need for the month, but I really hated doing it because it was so much work and it took me so much time. The most awesome feature I love about Debitoor is the option to import my business account so that I can go through it and use the incoming and outgoing payments as a todo list.

Pros

At first I found it very hard to get started with invoices and all that stuff that comes with starting your own company. I tested a lot of different softwares and I decided to go with Debitoor because it was the most easiest tool to use and I love that everything works out so quickly with just a few clicks, because I really want to focus on my business and not on the invoicing.

Cons

I would love to see more AI improvements that maybe automatically do or suggest stuff for me to reduce the amount of time I need to spend with Debitoor, but besides that I love using it.
