RatedPeople.com, which has 30,000 registered tradesmen on its books, including plumbers, electricians, bricklayers and carpenters, is rolling out a trial with iZettle, to enable users to securely accept card payments on the go via their smartphone or tablet device.
Chief Marketing Officer of RatedPeople.com, Tariq Dag Khan said: â€œFinding alternative mobile payment options for our tradesmen is a high priority for us as we know that there is a stigma attached to cash in hand payments, an issue that is unfairly tarnishing the industry.
â€œAs cheques are gradually being phased out too, we are looking for innovating payment solutions that will help build up the trust between tradesmen and their customers. iZettle has a reputation for being a trusted, easy to use service that allows tradesmen to get up and running within minutes â€“ this made them an obvious starting point for us.â€
iZettle is handy for tradesmen as it helps them to manage their cash flow and effectively record point of sale transactions for both cash and card payments. Users have said this free service has transformed their accounting and business processes and allows them to spend more time on growing the business and less time on admin.
Stewart Roberts, Managing Director at iZettle, UK, comments: â€œWorking with a premium service like RatedPeople.com makes perfect sense for us. We are signing up 3,000 users a day to iZettle, a large proportion of which are tradesmen. This indicates just how large the demand is for this kind of solution and iZettle is looking forward to working with the RatedPeople.com community.â€
