Shopify’s new card reader with the Chips and Swipe Reader was completely designed in-house by Shopify, and accepts both swipes and chip-based dips.
This Chip & Swipe works at a cashier station or out and about with a smartphone, and user can operate in one hand. Dasha Sivkov, product marketing manager at Shopify in a Product Hunt post said “The reader accepts Mastercard, Visa, American Express, and Discover. The reader’s versatility meets the needs of merchants selling in person, whether it’s in store, or at a pop-up, festival, or market”.
On a full change, the reader lasts 400 chip transactions or 700 swipes, and it can pair wirelessly with Android or Apple phones over Bluetooth. For the new Shopify point-of-sale merchants, the reader is being offered for free and existing customers will pay $29 for owning this reader.
