All the answers you’re looking for.

Does Lightspeed offer a complete solution?

Lightspeed proudly offers a 360° embedded solution. Having only one provider for your electronic point of sale technology, payment services, hardware, and support team saves you countless time and money. Plus, it makes running your business so much easier.

I currently have a contract with another payment provider. How can I switch?

Depending on which provider you currently have a contract with, and what your terms are, the cancellation fees they impose will differ. Thankfully, the switch process to Lightspeed Payments is smooth sailing. Our friendly support agents take you from start to finish and make sure you’re running without a hitch before you go live.

Is hardware included?

Lightspeed hardware is sold separately. For security purposes, you cannot use any existing payment terminal hardware you might already have as these have not been injected with the certified firmware.

What is the average deposit time for funds?

You can expect to see money deposited into your account the next working day after a transaction is made. Please note, that a number of circumstances may affect this timeline, including delays caused by bank systems or risk monitoring. For further details on when to expect your funds, please refer to our documentation on getting paid.

Are there hidden fees?

Never. With Lightspeed you’ll never find a complicated or cryptic fee on your statement. The only thing you can expect is a £15 chargeback fee, should one even occur at all. We offer competitive rates and our experts are happy to tailor the right solution to fit your business. No monkey business here.

What happens if I get a chargeback?

Sadly, chargebacks can happen and they are a reality no retailer can escape. Luckily, we make it so much easier for you to deal with. You will be charged a single £15 fee and we will fight tooth and nail to dispute the claim on your behalf. We’ll assist you from start to finish and keep you updated on the status as the dispute progresses.

Where can I find all my payment related reports?

Your transaction and settlement reports are all in your Lightspeed ePOS, in the same place you run all your other standard reports from. Your deposits and batches are tracked in real-time, which makes reconciliation much faster and easier.

Can I use Lightspeed Payments for my Lightspeed eCom store?

Absolutely. In fact, you really should. It’ll save you lots of time, headaches, and money. The second you turn on Lightspeed Payments, you instantly have both in-store and online processing. It’s that simple.

What card types can I accept with Lightspeed Payments?

Lightspeed Payments accepts all major credit and debit cards. And the rate is always the same no matter what card your customer chooses to pay with. No surprises.

What are embedded vs. non-embedded payments?

Lightspeed Payments is an embedded payment processor, meaning it communicates with Lightspeed ePOS to process payments. Transactions are automatically recorded in your ePOS system, saving time, and reducing errors because it eliminates the need for manual entry. Embedded payments make for a better checkout experience for both your employees and customers. Plus, you have access to plenty of valuable info including batch settlements, reports, and customer data.

With non-embedded payments, processors don't communicate with the ePOS system. Transaction data isn't recorded—you have to manually input information, making the checkout process more complex.
