Cheddar Up's powerful mobile card reader is available for purchase and works in tandem with both the Cheddar Up iOS and Android mobile apps for the purpose of accepting point-of-sale payments.
Bluetooth POS Card Reader
Cheddar Up's M2 card reader is perfect for roaming checkout setups and mobile devices and it:
- Works with iOS and Android devices
- Connects via Bluetooth
- Accepts tap, swipe, and dip payments
The Cheddar Up card reader is a battery-powered Bluetooth reader for your mobile devices. It supports EMV chip and tap transactions, mobile wallets like Apple Pay and Google Pay, and magnetic-stripe swipes. The reader connects to iOS or Android over Bluetooth. The card reader comes with a charging cable and is available for sale for $79. There is also an optional dock that is available for $19.
No. While we think using the Cheddar Up card reader results in a superior point-of-sale checkout experience, you do have other options that don’t involve purchasing hardware. Those options include scanning a credit card using the “scan card” option on the mobile app (this only works for credit cards with embossed numbers) or entering the credit card number manually.
No. Only a card reader purchased from Cheddar Up will work with the Cheddar Up mobile apps. If you have a card reader from another payment platform, it will not work with Cheddar Up.
Yes. Prior to the M2 card reader (shown above), which Cheddar Up is currently selling, Cheddar Up had a black BBPOS Bluetooth card reader. The BBPOS card reader is still supported and will be supported at least through 2024, and likely beyond. We also have a getting started guide specific to the BBPOS card reader that is available to users.
