Using the Bluetooth Card Reader
Bluetooth card readers can be purchased at our shop here. If using our Bluetooth card reader, ensure the card reader is on and within proximity and click Scan for Bluetooth Reader.
Once connected, the battery level of the card reader will be displayed alongside a message confirming the card reader is connected. Once the card reader is connected, you are ready to take payment. The Bluetooth card reader supports dip, tap, and swipe transactions. If the first dip fails for an EMV enabled card, you may then swipe swipe the card.
Once the card information has been entered, proceed to the next screen to input client details. When all required fields have been entered, the Charge button will be illuminated. Click this button to complete the payment.
For technical specs of the bluetooth reader and other useful information, please see the attached reference guide.

Hold the card in front of your phone's camera in the outlined space and click Scan when aligned. If satisfied with the scanned information, click Confirm. To scan again, click Retake.
