  • Card payments

    Hi all,

    I had a general question to throw out to estate agencies across the UK.

    As many of you must be aware, closing a deal not only feels great, but it takes a huge weight off a sales / letting negotiators back until they realise that the more difficult part needs to be completed - the payment.

    My question is how does your company currently accept card payments from your customers?

    Hi Mark,

    We are an estate agent dealing in both sales and lettings, hopefully i can help you.

    I assume from the post and the question you are not in the UK?

    For sales we very rarely have to take a payment, all dealt with by mortgage brokers and solicitors. The only payment we need to take is for EPC or bespoke marketing, most vendors will pay by cash or cheque.

    In regards to sales there are a number of options to us, A telephone number tenants or landlords call through to and a payment is taken. A handheld terminal in the office or a virtual terminal you log onto.

    All are safe and well used, the only thing that differs is the % the merchant takes to process the transaction this varies between 0.5% and 3% if have found.

    Hope that helps you!
