New and old I had it for about a year. The card reader doesn't always connect right away and by the time it does your customers have moved on and right now not able to switch between 6 and 21% sales tax which is a major setback. It's not possible to use it outside your own country. The latest card reader is a whole lot better. Some bugs have been fixed
Bad card reader update The card reader had a major update recently and no longer switches off automatically and is harder to turn off manually, meaning the battery depletes overnight. It used to have better battery life than the PayPal reader, but now that's looking like a better option. It also takes ages to charge now. I wonder if it's because they want everyone to buy the latest card reader. My charges are higher than £30 so I have no use for the new readers. The app itself works well. It's a pity the hardware lets it down.
Amateur After spending hundreds on the hardware for an izettle setup with days to go before our shop opens I was horrified how buggy and amateur this app is. Product information was simply forgotten and worst of all it doesn't do landscape mode!!!!!! So we're now scrambling for a new vertical tablet holder. They should just be honest and pull android if they're not going to support it.
My I zettle Small black iZettle mura. It's great when it works but very frustrating for the custom and myself when you're waiting for it to connect, Bluetooth is switched on, the device is recognised but there's no connection even when you know you've got Internet. No valid reason- sometimes it works and sometimes it doesn't. On the positive side you can take it anywhere so it's very portable unlike a set terminal. High rates of interest, I now put a charge for people using credit and debit cards to reduce overheads.
---- ISSUE FIXED ---- This issue has now been fixed, but even though I contacted them directly about it, and was assured I'd be notified about the fix, I heard nothing from them. You still can't edit product folders on the website interface however, making it clunky to use. ----Previous Review --- iZettle was by far and a way the best Android based register software out there, but the latest update has removed important functionality. You are no longer able to arrange products in folders, meaning everything that you wish to take payment for is on the one screen, making it slow and cumbersome to use practically unless you are only intending to sell up to about 9 different products. It's not just been removed from the Android app, but also from the website management console. Until this functionality is restored, this app is pretty useless as a cash register and only really any use in taking card payments, typed in manually.
3 months in and no issues. Got this device and app in mid September and have had no negative issues at all. Easy to use. Customers love the contactless feature. Hope it continues like this👍
