What to Know Before Getting Started
Like the rest of Scandinavia, Finland has access to a very low number of mobile credit card processing apps. Whereas the U.S. and UK are inundated with Square and its various imitators, Finland has only one established mobile credit card reader (iZettle) for merchants to choose from. And unlike Norway and Sweden, which have developed new or upcoming local competitors to iZettle, Finland does not appear to have an alternative mobile credit card processor in the works. It remains to be seen whether Nordic payment processor Nets will eventually launch a product for Finland mobile merchants, or whether a foreign company will attempt to make inroads in the Finnish market.
In any case, the limited options available may make it difficult for Finnish merchants to decide what mobile swiper is right for them. That’s why we’ve created the following list of the best Finnish mobile credit card processing apps. 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.
