How it works

Elavon's payments solutions will process debit and credit card payments including technologies such as contactless and mobile payments like Apple Pay™ into your Santander Corporate and Commercial Current Account on the next business day.

If your card payments are processed through an alternative bank, your funds will be available in three business days.

We've teamed up with Elavon to provide you with a system that will enable your customers to pay you as easily as possible, whether you’re receiving funds in person, online, through the post or over the phone. 

Getting set up

Elavon's engineers can install a payment terminal that best suits your needs, from e-commerce functionality to every kind of countertop terminal, internet-enabled, or mobile wireless including the latest technology ePOS and integrated POS solutions like talech® and ECR SmartLink.

You can also monitor your account at any time of the day or night through either Elavon’s 24-hour support team or Elavon Connect, a free online reporting tool that allows you to view your account, check deposits, manage settled batches and download your transaction history.

Of course, Elavon also maintains stringent risk management and fraud prevention tools, so you can rest assured that your business and cardholder data is secure. 

International transactions

Elavon's payments solutions support both Multi-Currency Conversion and Dynamic Currency Conversion transactions and can help improve your business with international customers by allowing them to pay in their native currency. You can also earn extra revenue by sharing a percentage of the currency conversion rates.
