The EMV Bluetooth Reader
This machine embodies all of the same components as the Audio Jack reader, but with the added benefit of connecting via Bluetooth; leaving your headphone jack available to you. It also has an optional (removable) adhesive pad, meaning that while connected through Bluetooth, it remains firmly secured to your mobile phone.
Pin Pad EMV Bluetooth Reader
This device connects to smartphones and tablets via Bluetooth, meaning that it remains separate from your device. This separation between phone and machine creates an experience for the cardholder that is familiar and consistent with traditional cash register patterns. The cardholder inserts their card, confirms the charge, enters their PIN, removes their own card and returns the device to the merchant, who then completes the process via their phone or tablet.
Pin Pad EMV Bluetooth Reader with NFC
This device connects to all existing POS systems via Bluetooth, Wifi, or through a USB serial. This dissolves the restrictions from the usual boundaries and restrictions, making it possible to stay connected even when not in the store. Therefore this device is perfect for pop-up locations, seasonal exteriors, or vendor fairs events.
