Revolut Business now accepts payments online

Revolut Business has announced this week that UK businesses can accept card payments online and directly into their account.

All Revolut Business customers on paid plans are about to receive an allowance of free UK and EEA card payment acceptance every month. This comes with no additional cost.

Business owners may also take advantage of very low fees and competitive rates unmatched by other major payment platforms, with a 1.3% fee for UK and EEA consumer cards, a 2.8% fee for all other cards.

Revolut Business is aimed to help owners stay on top of their finances and accept payments online hassle-free, by using Revolut Business’ easy-to-install checkout plugins. They can also enhance their own checkout experience by using the customisable widget and Merchant API.

This new functionality has been introduced so all the business owners are able to manage everything in one place. This way, they don’t need to alternate (and reconcile) between acquiring and banking platforms.

Thibaut Genevrier, Head of Acquiring, said: “Payments sit at the core of any business so we have crafted a solution that meets not only their business account demands but also their payment acceptance requirements.”

“With the current situation in the UK, companies are faced with the necessity to do business online, so not only did we introduce a new way to accept payments through websites, but we also now allow customers without an online presence to get paid fast through secure payment links. It’s our mission to democratize acceptance and we are already on the way. Stay tuned!” he added.
