Card machines that work for you.

We understand that you need to be flexible when running a business. And the way you take payments must be too. That’s why our card payment machines are designed to adapt to your specific needs. 

So whether you’re taking payments at the till, flitting around a busy brasserie, serving G&Ts on a roof-terrace or even filing nails in festival tents, our credit and debit card machines will work with you.

Why take card payments?

At one point, paying by card was a luxury that was reserved for certain industries. Today that’s not the case, paying by card has become the accepted norm and we’re seeing cash payments decline year on year. 

In fact, in 2019, debit cards overtook cash as the most frequently-used payment method in the UK. By 2028, it’s expected that the debit card payment volume will reach 22.3 billion and the percentage of cash payments will decrease massively, dropping to just 9% of all transactions.  

So, if you’re a small business owner, now is the perfect time to start accepting contactless card payments with Dojo. Our chip and PIN card machines also accept Apple and Google Pay, so customers can pay with the tap of their watch or phone for speedy transactions.

Choosing your credit & debit card machine.

Staying put, out and about or bouncing around a restaurant, our card machines can suit the demands of all sorts of businesses. 

They’re the perfect balance between sleek and sturdy. So while they look great on your countertop with the option of 5” HD touch screens, they’re built to last, too. 

All Dojo card readers accept all major credit and debit cards including Visa, Mastercard and American Express, plus Google, Apple and Samsung Pay.

What's the difference between a card machine and a PDQ machine? 

Nothing. A PDQ machine, credit card terminal or card reader are all just different names for the same thing – a way to accept cards from your customers face-to-face. 

It's the exact same industry-leading technology in each and they function the same, regardless of what you like to call them.

Your exit fees are on us.

If you're already with another provider, we could pay your exit fees up to £3,000 to help you make the switch to us.

Apple Pay & Google Pay contactless payments. 

Technology is accelerating, and the way we pay is becoming more advanced and convenient for our modern everyday lives. 

We’ve all been there. In a rush to leave and grabbed our phone but left our keys or wallet? Well with Apple or Google Pay technology, smartphone owners store their card details digitally in their ‘wallet’ allowing them to tap their phone or watch to pay for items under £45.

On average, 79% of over 18 year-olds owned a smartphone in 2019. If you’re catering for a younger generation, don’t miss out on mobile digital payments. All Dojo card machines can accept Apple and Google pay contactless from the get go. 

Card payment security.

You’ll have enough to worry about as a business owner, but secure payments shouldn’t keep you awake at night. Accepting card payments should always be secure– which is why all of our card machines come with point-to-point encryption (P2PE) as standard. 

P2PE is a form of encryption that protects your customer’s confidential card data. The card data is unreadable, until it reaches a secure point of decryption. This means that if the data were to ever get intercepted by a third party, no sensitive data should be exposed, making it useless for scammers.  

Heard of PCI compliance? It can be a faff, but we’re on hand to make it pain-free for you, and your card machines risk-free for customers. As your Dojo small business card machine is point-to-point encrypted, you’ve already ticked one thing off your list.


I want to switch to Dojo, do you cover cancellation fees from my old provider?

Yes, if you choose to switch to us, we'll pay up to £3,000 towards your cancellation fees.

Are my card machines secure?

Very. All Dojo card machines are PCI compliant thanks to point-to-point encryption security.

What is point-to-point encryption?

Point-to-point encryption (P2PE) protects account data from the point where a merchant accepts the payment card, to the secure point of decryption. As a result, PCI compliance is quick and hassle-free.

Am I PCI compliant?

Once you’ve read the simple PCI documents and confirmed two questions, you’ll be compliant. So no more lengthy questionnaires.
