With contactless payments being used more often, many of our PTA members have asked us about card payment solutions. Having a card machine available is likely to encourage more spending and help your PTA raise more funds at events where some attendees may only have card on them.
Parentkind undertook a review of the card processing market and evaluated offers being made by various companies including rates, fees and service. SumUp offers a cost effective and practical solution for PTAs.
Why should I apply for a card reader?
Society is increasingly using less cash, and paying small transactions by card has become much more common. Introducing the ability to pay by card for some of the larger value stalls like bar or BBQ, or for tickets for events will encourage spending (and you won’t need to send people off to the nearest cash machine!)
Please Note: Upon registering for an account, you may be informed that SumUp can only accept fundraising business activity if you are a registered charity. Please inform the Support and Onboarding team that your PTA is processing payments for school-related projects, such as a quiz night or bake sale.
