Users will run this through their Revolut Business account, where customers can accept, settle and store funds.

The pricing of a transaction could be priced at 0.8% + £0.02 per transaction fee and a one-off cost or customised pricing for the businesses dealing with high volumes.

Revolut is currently actively focusing on small and medium businesses, freelancers and casual sellers.

This service can be used by businesses of any size. In signing up to a merchant account with Revolut Business, a user can connect a business account to Revolut Reader and gain free access to a suite of smart Revolut Business tools.

These include local and international payments, foreign exchange at the interbank rate, IBAN for global transfers, payments requests, expenses, subscriptions and company cards management, payroll, and the Revolut Pay check-out solution.

“When designing new products, our team always has customer needs in mind: a fast and easy to use solution that will not slow business down, easy access to funds, and receiving payments faster than the industry standard of 2-3 business days,” Revolut product owner Maria Garcia Marti said.

“Plus, the security and long battery-life of a small pocket-sized device, capable of streamlining operations without the need to manage multiple accounts and systems.”

Revolut Reader can be adapted to other POS systems in place within businesses, having a SDK/ API solution included. In the coming months, Revolut Business offer will be extended with a POS solution that will bring more flexibility to larger merchants if they need to integrate Revolut Reader with POS systems already used.
