iZettle brings its mobile payment accessory and service to Spain in partnership with Banco Santander

Just ahead of Mobile World Congress, iZettle is bringing its mobile payment device (and service) to Spain by partnering with Banco Santander. This in turn will allow self-employed professionals and micro merchants to accept card payments with nothing but their mobile device.

As part of the deal, the bank will offer iZettle’s Chip & PIN reader which connects to Android and iOS devices sans any wires via Bluetooth — unlike iZettle’s Chip & Signature reader that plugs into a phone or tablet.

Getting started with iZettle only takes a few minutes and is done entirely online. Merchants pay no subscription, setup fee, monthly or minimum fee, and only pay 2.75% of each transaction amount. iZettle’s app and card readers work with all major credit cards, including Visa, MasterCard, American Express Maestro, Visa Electron and V Pay.

The card reader, which can be purchased at iZettle.com, costs £49 though Banco Santander customers in Spain are eligible for a discount that will be paid into their bank accounts after purchase.

Aside from Spain, iZettle also offers its Chip & PIN reader in the United Kingdom, Germany, Sweden, Norway and Finland.
