What is PayPal Zettle?

PayPal Zettle builds commerce tools, such as mobile card readers and point-of-sale apps that enable small businesses to compete with the big players. We help our users to grow their businesses with simple and easy-to-use technology. 

There's no start-up costs, no lock-in contracts and no hidden fees. Instead, we offer a powerful set of tools that help you to start, run, and grow your business.

The PayPal Zettle card reader makes it possible for anyone to accept card payments - anytime, anywhere - while our intuitive point-of-sale app helps you to get paid, track your sales and manage stock levels.

The Zettle Terminal is an all-in-one card reader and point-of-sale app. With the Terminal, you can take payments and manage your POS from the same device.

If you want to take your business online, we have a range of integration partners that allow you to build your own web shop and start selling on social media.


The app is free to download and runs on smartphones and tablets running iOS 12 or Android 8 and higher, and our card reader works with bluetooth-enabled devices that run iOS 12 or Android 8. 

For PayPal Zettle to work, you need to be connected to a 3G, 4G, or WiFi network.
