After logging in to the SumUp App, enter an amount (minimum £1,00 / 1,00€) and press "Charge". Your device will scan for the card reader and once found, the reader will turn on automatically.

To begin transacting with your newly delivered 3G Card Reader, first, make sure you’ve completed your SumUp account registration at sumup.me.
Then turn on the device, select the preferred language and log into the reader with your SumUp email and password.
2. Processing transactions
To process transactions after the initial setup with the SumUp Air Card Reader, enter the payment amount in the app and tap “Charge”.
For the 3G Card Reader, enter the payment amount on the reader and press the green tick.
Then, regardless of your reader, the final steps are the same:
Insert, tap (or swipe for 3G) the card and have the customer authorise the transaction. After a successful transaction, you will have the option to send your customer a receipt.
3. Receive your payout within a few days!
SumUp will process your transaction (within 2-3 business days) and then transfer the amount directly to your bank account after subtracting the SumUp fee.
