SumUp provides fast, affordable payment systems for small businesses – making it easier than ever to get paid wherever, whenever. Rebecca Jamieson Dwyer discovers how this global brand, based right here on the Sunshine Coast, is making business better in 2024.

When you run your own business, you want to do things your way. That’s why SumUp offers a range of options for even the smallest of operators, including remote card readers and in-store point of sale systems, as well as digital payment solutions such as invoices, gift cards, payment links and more.

This means that whether you run a market stall, a food truck, pop-up store,  hair salon or a bricks-and-mortar retail store, you can connect with and service your customers easily – something that’s increasingly important in this progressively cash-free era.

Trisha Stephens is the owner of Noosa-based Tutu for You – a tutu-hire business for young ballerinas.

As well as her store in Noosaville, Trisha travels to competitions around the country, and switched to SumUp because the previous payment system she was using just wasn’t up to scratch.

“I saw lots of adverts on social media for SumUp and thought, ‘this has to be better than what we’re using,’” she says.

“The previous system was slow and unreliable, whereas SumUp is really easy to use and never lets us down.

“And the fee structure is much more beneficial as well – the system is much cheaper than others that are around at the moment!

“We have the Point Of Sale Lite system in store, and we take the Air EFTPOS Terminals on the road when we travel to shows. Getting set-up was relatively simple, and our staff quickly got used to using a new system.

“The support from SumUp has been great – they’ve pointed out a few things to us that have made the whole process go really smoothly.”

As well as the affordable cost, Trisha loves the flexibility that comes from using the SumUp system.

“It connects to our mobiles so we can use it anywhere and everywhere, and we can even send payment links to clients via their phone numbers,” she says.

“We’ve been recommending it to other businesses.

“It proves that you don’t need to be locked into using a specific device just because it’s the most popular.”

Millions of businesses around the globe use SumUp – SumUp believes that every business should have access to affordable, easy-to-use payment solutions, no matter their size.

They don’t charge monthly fees and the transaction fees are currently lower than competitors, making them the smart option for savvy business owners looking to upgrade payment systems and take their business to the next level.

When you do the sums, it pays to use SumUp!
