What is Zettle?

Zettle builds game-changing commerce tools, such as mobile card readers and point-of-sale apps that empower small businesses to compete with the big players. Zettle is part of the PayPal family. 

We’ve helped our users grow their businesses by more than three times the European average each year, and we do it with simple and easy-to-use technology.

The Zettle card reader makes it possible for anyone to accept card payments – any time, anywhere, while our intuitive free point-of-sale app, Zettle Go, helps you get paid, tracks your sales and lets you keep an eye on stock levels. 

Our point-of-sale app for hospitality, Zettle Food & Drink has been designed to help bars, cafés and restaurants organise their floor plans, create menus, track stock levels and get paid, as well as allowing business owners to get key business insights and keep an eye on productivity.

If you want to take your business online, we have a range of integration partners that allow you to build your own webshop and get you selling on social media. You can also use Zettle Invoice for businesses that sell remotely.

With Zettle, there are no startup costs, no lock-in contracts and no hidden fees to worry about. Instead, we offer a powerful set of tools that help you start, run and grow your business.

Other tools and services we offer

Not every business makes its sales face-to-face. If you want to sell remotely, we have a range of tools to do so safely. 

Zettle Invoice allows businesses to create professional invoices, track payments and send reminders. 

Payment Links are an easy way to get paid via text, email or social media. Simply generate a one-time link and send it via whichever messaging system you like. Your customer can pay via card or online bank and settle your sale in the blink of an eye.


The free Zettle Go app works on your iOS or Android device.
Zettle Food & Drink for bars, cafés and restaurants works on iPad only. 

The Zettle Reader works with Bluetooth-enabled devices that run iOS or Android. Check out our compatibility guide for more information.

Internet connection and data usage

For Zettle to work, you need to be connected to a 3G, 4G or wifi network. These connections are much faster than the 2G technology relied on by traditional card terminals. Accepting payments with the Zettle Go app only takes a few kilobytes of data. However, we recommend all Zettle users connect to a stable network with a reliable connection.
