A point-of-sale unit at a mar­ket stall used to be lim­ited to high-turnover stands, due to the high daily rental costs and heavy trans­ac­tion fees. This meant smaller busi­nesses couldn’t af­ford to ac­cept card pay­ments, in­evitably los­ing out on sales as more and more peo­ple pre­fer to carry cards rather than cash. En­ter Yoco, a small wire­less hand­held de­vice that charges a once-off fee and works in con­junc­tion with an app on your smart­phone. The com­pany prides it­self on what it calls proac­tive cus­tomer ser­vice, which means it watches its sys­tems and if it sees there’s a po­ten­tial prob­lem with a unit, they’ll call you with a so­lu­tion be­fore you even know you have a prob­lem.

VER­DICT: Nifty gad­get for han­dling card pay­ments in any sit­u­a­tion. Price: R1 499 once-off for the Yoco Wire­less Lite card reader, there­after 2.95% or less per trans­ac­tion. Yoco.co.za
