We just released the new GoPayment EMV card reader so you can start accepting chip card payments.

Just like the old reader, it’s small, sleek, and fits in your pocket for receiving payments on the go!

Accept chip and non-chip cards with one reader

Battery and charging

emv-readerThe reader comes with a USB cable, which is used for charging the device.

Why do I need to charge the reader? The previous one didn’t need charging! Chip transactions take more power than swipe transactions, so the new reader has an internal battery to power chip cards.

How many transactions does the reader power? The reader can process 150 chip transactions and 150 swipes. However, this number may vary depending on connectivity (wifi, 3G, 4G), card brand, etc.

How do I know when the reader is fully charged? The reader’s LED displays an amber light while it’s charging and a green light when it’s fully charged. Charging time can take up to 4 hours.

How often should I charge the reader? We recommend charging your reader at least once a week so you don’t run out of battery in the field. The app lets you know when the reader is about to lose power. If you have an external battery, you can still run transactions while charging the reader.
