Most small shops now have the ability to use paypoint and so it is becoming more accepted.
Your business bank account manager should be able to help you set one up as HSBC and RBS as well as most others have merchant facilities.
It does cost though to set up and with a monthly fee but you do get a card machine so you can swipe or enter card details manually on the keypad if you take telephone payments.
Dont go for the American Express option though as the charges are not worth it for £50 transactions.
