The PayPal Chip and Tap Reader is a secure and easy to use way to process chip or magnetic stripe cards and contactless payments.
Charge your reader by connecting it with the enclosed micro-USB cable to a power outlet. The blue blinking light on your reader will indicate it’s ready to connect.
Turn on Bluetooth in your mobile device Settings.
Open the PayPal Here app and tap the menu at the top left. Next, select Have a new reader?. You’ll be guided to find available card readers to pair and connect.
Always keep your reader up-to-date. If required, please follow the on-screen prompts for the latest firmware updates.
Many cards now contain EMV chip technology, which creates a unique code for every transaction to help reduce fraud.
To use Apple Pay®, Samsung Pay and other contactless payments, customers simply place their device near the reader and it will initiate payment.
All credit cards continue to have magnetic stripes in case a customer doesn’t have an EMV chip card.
