What is myPOS?

Every year, fewer and fewer people are shopping with cash; and according to UK Finance, contactless card use now makes up a third of all payments. No matter how small your business is, if you can offer your customers the use of a card reader, you’re almost certain to make more sales than you otherwise would. You’ll avoid the security risks of a cash-only business, too.

myPOS (launched in 2012) is an in-person, online and mobile payment solutions brand aiming to be affordable for small and medium-sized businesses.

Do myPOS card readers have the features you need? Here’s what you need to know.

myPOS reader customer reviews

myPOS has an overall rating of “great” on Trustpilot (updated March 2024), with 4.1 out of 5 stars based on more than 10,000 reviews.

Our verdict

myPOS has several machines to choose from. Whether you need a card reader for on the go or docked into your professional set-up, one of these models could work for you.

On the whole, myPOS customers seem keen, but there are some who have also raised concerns about the fee, the set-up process and the brand’s response when something goes wrong.

Compared to rivals, myPOS card readers have transaction costs on the lower side and benefit from having no monthly costs; but, with the exception of the extremely reasonably priced myPOS Go, the upfront price is higher than for many competitors. However, it does have an impressively speedy settlement period.

Overall, myPOS offers a few choices that could suit small or medium businesses. Whether you choose one from this range or a different brand depends on your business’s needs. Use our handy guide to compare a range of card machines and make an informed decision.
