Card Reader FAQ
What are the transaction fees when using the Stripe Terminal card reader?

The fees when using a card reader are reduced to 2.7% + 5c USD on every transaction. Normal Payment app fees of 1% also apply.

Do you support the Stripe Terminal BBPOS Chipper 2X BT?

Yes! The greatest part about the BBPOS Chipper 2X BT is that it is Bluetooth enabled with a long battery life, and can be used to swipe cards. In addition, it also supports EMV (chip-cards) and NFC (tap payments).

Do you support the Stripe Terminal Verifone P400?

Unfortunately, we only offer the BBPOS Chipper 2X BT, as mentioned above. We hope to support more readers in the future.

Are the card readers PCI compliant and pre-certified?

Card readers are certified EMV Level 1, 2, 3. They provide end-to-end encryption, natively support chip cards and contactless payments, including Apple Pay and Google Pay, and help protect you against liability for counterfeit fraud.

Which countries have card readers available?

At the moment, card readers are ONLY available in the United States. You must have a US-based Stripe account, with a US-based bank account, charging in USD.

Which currencies are supported with the card reader?

The only currency that is currently supported is United States Dollars (USD).

Can I use my card reader outside the US?

Although in some situations, the card reader may work outside the geographic US, but we cannot make any guarantees. In these instances, it's best to manually enter the credit card information.

Can I return my reader?

Except in special circumstances, card readers are typically not able to be returned and refunds are not processed. It is up to you, the customer, to ensure that you need the reader and the app supports all of the functionality you require to use a card reader.

If your card reader can be returned, there will be a 20% restocking fee applied to your refund to cover our internal costs of shipping, packaging and inventory management. You are also responsible for the cost of shipping the item back. This is non-negotiable.
