iKhokha Card Machines

Myth #1: iKhokha card machines are hard to find.

Getting your iKhokha card machine is as simple as visiting ourwebsite and requesting a call back from our incredibly talented sales specialists.

Myth #4: It’s better to own a card machine than rent one from the bank.

Here at iKhokha, we believe in placing the power directly in the hands of the business owner. That’s why our card machines can be bought upfront for a single, once-off payment. But we also have the option of renting to buy, so at the end of your payment period, you will own your card machine.
