How to Create Staff Accounts with SumUp

Did you know you can create separate SumUp accounts for your employees? Staff accounts are not only a useful tool to stay organized—they can also be used to evaluate employee performance. Staff accounts enable your employees to log the transactions they do therefore you can view specific transactions by name as well as look at individual daily, monthly, quarterly or yearly sales.

Different accounts, one bank account

The transactions processed by your employees will be paid out to the bank account registered to your main account. Easy.

How it works

Employees each have a separate login for the SumUp App, with a separate email address and password. They can accept card payments and check their Sales History in the SumUp App.

Employees can’t log into your SumUp Account at and change your account information.

Furthermore, the Advanced Mode aligns with the main account’s settings. It can’t be switched on or off by employees and they can’t add products and shelves. The main account sees the Sales History of each employee account and receives all payout reports to their email address. As a result, the main account has an accounting function.

Important: If you want to grant your employees more rights within their accounts, please contact our support team: [email protected].
