What is Virtual Terminal? This remote payment feature allows you to accept card payments by simply entering the card details on your phone or computer – no card reader necessary. Not only does this increase flexibility and cash flow by accepting remote payments, but it also enables you to use Virtual Terminal as a backup if your card reader isn’t available.
We’re committed to transparent pricing here at SumUp, which means you only pay 3.25% + $0.15 on Virtual Terminal transactions. Plus, you’ll never pay monthly fees or hidden costs.
Keep in mind that Virtual Terminal may not be available to all business types, so if you’d like to request to take payments over the phone for your small business, send our team an email from the email associated with your SumUp account.
