Ben McG,



This has saved me a tonne of money and is a taste of the future… Their merchant team have been responsive to feedback and they keep adding new features. Loving it and hope to ditch my card terminal altogether!!

Atoa is a great alternative to cards.

Phil B,



Aside from the obvious lower costs versus cards, Atoa has really helped me with managing cashflow better. I get the money in my bank account instantly rather than in 2-3 days, this means I can pay staff and bills faster. I am so so grateful for Atoa.
