Meet the New Chip & Swipe Reader for Shopify POSApril 20, 2017
With Shopify POS, we made it easy to sell products and accept payments in person, right from your phone or tablet. Now, we’re launching brand new hardware to make it better than ever to sell with Shopify.
Our new Chip & Swipe Reader was designed by Shopify using the same passion and care that we put into our software. It’s a simple-to-use credit card reader for any style of selling. Whether you’re selling at a market, pop-up shop, or a permanent retail location, we’ve made the perfect solution to get you started.
Make the switch to chip
The reader accepts all major credit and debit cards, and supports the latest EMV chip technology—the secure payment option that keeps you and your customers safe from fraud. Simply dip the card into the top of the reader and collect a signature on your screen. And, you can still swipe older credit cards using the built-in magstripe reader.
Powerful, yet pocket-sized
No headphone jack? No problem. This compact and portable card reader connects wirelessly using Bluetooth to both iOS and Android phones and tablets. It’s easy to bring with you wherever your customers are.
With smart power management features, the reader offers long-lasting battery life up to an entire week on a single charge (about 400 chip transactions). It also includes a base to use on your countertop that keeps your reader charged and ready for the next sale.
All the power of Shopify
Whether you’re already selling online, or looking to grow your business with new channels, Shopify has you covered. Shopify POS works seamlessly with your Shopify online store to keep all your products, customers, and orders in one place.
