FAQ for Former Payleven Merchants

Welcome to the SumUp family! To make your start with SumUp as easy as possible, we compiled a list of the most frequently asked questions for you.

In this article:

What changed with switching to SumUp?

Generally speaking, nothing much changed for your daily business. You can still transact as usual using your payleven card reader except that you now use the SumUp App.
You also get some new features such as daily payouts, analytics of your business at your SumUp Account at sumup.me, Product Management directly from your device and track payouts as well as resend Payout Reports via your Sales History in your SumUp Account.


Daily payouts doesn’t mean that you will receive your money on your bank account after 24 hours. Other than payleven, we make payouts every single day which speeds up your payout timeline.

What’s the new payout timeline?

Once you did a transaction, it takes 2-3 business days until you receive the money on your bank account.

As soon as a payout is processed into your bank account, you will receive an email that contains a full breakdown of all transactions that are included in the payout. You will also receive a monthly Payout Report summarising the previous month at the beginning of each month as well as a separate invoice of all your monthly fees.

If you don’t want to receive daily payouts, you also have the option to choose between weekly and monthly payouts. Just contact our Support Team and we will help change the settings in your SumUp account (UK: support@sumup.co.uk, IE: support@sumup.ie).

Can I accept the same cards with SumUp as I did with payleven?

You can accept any card as long as a Visa, Mastercard, American Express, V PAY or Maestro logo is displayed on the card.
