In the following guide, we give you a quick setup guide to get started with SumUp in 3 easy steps.

1. Account Creation and Onboarding

There are 2 things you need to do to get your account created with SumUp.

a. Register for an account here

Once you sign up, you can start accepting payments immediately!

b. Provide required documents

To increase the processing limit on your account, you will need to upload the following documents.

Make sure that all documents are up to date and do not expire within the next 6 months.

Proof of ID

Passport, valid national ID card or Driving License (front and back sides, not cropped, colour copy, no flash)

Proof of Personal Address

Utility bill (eg. telephone, electricity, etc.)/rental agreement/bank statement

Proof of Business

Website/Facebook Page & company invoice/company bank statement

2. Technical Best Practices

a. Multiple Reader Setups

All merchants using more than 1 Card Reader, must use Employee Accounts.

Golden Rule for hardware:  1 Employee per Account + 1 Tablet/Smartphone + 1 Card Reader

Note: Do NOT connect multiple readers to a single Tablet/Smartphone

b. Increase checkout speed with a charging station

If you would like to increase your checkout speed, we highly recommend purchasing the charging station accessory and enabling constant charging.

This will give your customers the quickest checkout and best experience when purchasing with you.

c. Tablet/Phone Requirements

Your tablet/phone device should have the following requirements as a minimum:

  • Bluetooth 4.0
  • iOS 9 or Android 4.4 or higher
  • Location settings enabled
