Do I need to buy a swiper to accept POS payments?
No – purchasing a card reader is optional for point-of-sale payments on Cheddar Up. That said, the mobile card readers do work well. You can learn more about your card reader options here.
If you do not wish to purchase a card reader, you have two alternatives. You can enter credit card information manually or you can scan in the credit card data using your smart phone’s camera. Please note that the scan option does NOT take a photo of the credit card. Instead, it uses a unique technology that pulls in the card number by scanning their location on the credit card.
