UK based fintech startup SumUp has announced that it will launch its free mobile payments on March 21. The new service will be made available for all its British merchants and it will enable them to request payment in an easy and efficient manner. This announcement comes at a time when most businesses are on the back foot, trying to cope with the impact of coronavirus.
SumUp’s free Mobile Payments solution
The new payments feature by SumUp is easy to use as merchants request payment from their customers by simply sharing a link. This link can be shared over email, WhatsApp, SMS or any other messaging platform and is a notable solution for small businesses who would ultimately receive payment via cash or card in-store. With precautions put in place to combat the spread of Covid-19, this can be a new and effective way for merchants to collect payments.
