Best Dutch Mobile Credit Card Processing Apps

What to Know Before Getting Started

Just like the rest of Europe, the Netherlands do not have access to a wide variety of mobile credit card processing apps. However, Dutch merchants in particular have had the misfortune of losing a Netherlands-based smartphone payment processing option within the last year. This product was Adyen Shuttle, a mobile app and card reader from Dutch payment processor Adyen. Although Adyen continues to offer a number of standard POS and e-commerce products, the company no longer has a Square-style mobile card reader and app.

So, without Adyen Shuttle, how can Dutch merchants accept credit cards using their smartphones? The following list of the best Dutch mobile credit card processing apps can help them find the best option. The mobile payment processors on this list are known to offer low-cost, low-commitment contract terms and positively reviewed customer support. Although our list provides general information about each provider, merchants should be sure to visit each company’s website so that they can compare their options.

Our unbiased articles are supported in part by helping you find highly reviewed merchant accounts. You can learn more here.

Payleven

Based in the UK, Payleven is a mobile payment service that is “powered by” SumUp. As such, its products and services are very similar to those offered by SumUp, including an EMV/NFC card reader, a point-of-sale app, sales analytics, an itemized product catalogue, multi-user support, additional point-of-sale hardware, and emailed receipts. Payleven uses the same pricing model as SumUp, which starts at 2.75% for low-volume users and decreases gradually to 1.50% for users processing over €12,000 per month. This makes Payleven and SumUp equally competitive when it comes to potential costs.

Payleven’s mobile card reader costs €79 plus VAT. The company offers live phone support during business hours to all of its merchants. Our review of Payleven currently gives it an “A” rating.

Why I'm Qualified to Write About Credit Card Processing

I'm a former credit card processing sales director who left the industry to start my own a small business. From the time that I starting working in the merchant services industry to when I left to write about it, I've been on the pulse of payments for nearly 15 years.

I've reviewed hundreds of companies, read thousands of user reviews, and learned the pricing tricks of every provider. If you have questions about credit card processing, you can find the answers here. I can help you save money with your current merchant account or help you find a new one.
