The Stripe M2, BBPOS WisePad 3 and BBPOS WisePOS E are the only card readers supported in the U.S, however, we do support the Verifone P400 for users in Canada (but this support is no longer updated).

Unfortunately, the Bluetooth protocol only allows connection to a single mobile device at any given time. This means that the card reader cannot be shared across many multiple devices without disconnecting and reconnecting again.
At the moment, card readers are ONLY available in Australia, Austria, Belgium, Canada, Denmark, France, Germany, Ireland, New Zealand, the Netherlands, Singapore, Spain, Sweden and the United Kingdom and the United States.
The only currency that is currently supported is United States Dollars (USD).
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.
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.
