Samsung and iZettle, a PayPal service, have today announced a new partnership to support businesses in the UK by streamlining payment acceptance.

Through the alliance, the two companies plan to leverage their technology and explore innovative solutions for small business.

By using iZettle with Samsung devices, merchants will be able to accept payments quickly and securely. The aim is to reduce the need for cash. In addition, merchants will be able to login in to iZettle to access business critical analytics including real time sales data and smart stock management.

Joe Walsh, director of B2B at Samsung Electronics UK & Ireland, said: “We are delighted to announce this partnership with iZettle and bring their technology to Samsung’s Enterprise Edition devices. At Samsung, we believe in the power of small businesses and strive to offer them the best solutions that will enable them to future-proof and thrive in a digital era. iZettle is an excellent addition to our growing B2B ecosystem and we look forward to moving forward together.”

Small business bundle 

Samsung will start by offering iZettle’s technology as part of a new small business bundle allowing merchants that purchase its Enterprise Edition and select other devices to access commerce tools that help them run and grow their business.

Furthermore, to celebrate the partnership, Samsung is offering a free iZettle card reader with almost all Enterprise Edition models and also the Tab Active2.

Jacob de Geer, VP of Small Business Products and iZettle at PayPal, said: “We’re thrilled to partner with Samsung to ensure small businesses across the UK have the tools they need to run their business. Covid-19 has been a huge accelerator for contactless and digital payments. Going mobile is key and by joining forces with Samsung, we’re enabling more small businesses to accept contactless payments in seconds.”

From 15 July to 30 September 2020, Samsung business customers can claim an iZettle Reader 2 with the purchase of the Tab Active2 or any eligible Samsung Enterprise Edition smartphone or tablet.
