New Shopify Tap & Chip Reader

Posted on

In the last year, 70,000 merchants used Shopify to sell their products in-person, with that number continuing to grow. In order to allow for a smooth, seamless customer transaction, it’s important to have the right hardware in place.

For all you retailers out there, it’s your lucky day: Shopify has just announced the launch of the new Shopify Tap & Chip Reader, available to US-based merchants this coming Autumn.

Allow your customers to pay any way they want

Shopify’s new tap & chip reader allows for a fast, secure payment process, leaving more time for you to focus on providing an enjoyable and personalised customer experience. The reader accepts contactless ‘tap’ payments including chip-enabled credit cards, as well as mobile wallets like Apple Pay and Google Pay.

Sleek design & enhanced features

So, what else is great about the new Tap & Chip Reader?

Shopify have designed the new Tap & Chip Reader with user experience in mind. Here’s a list of its brilliant features and benefits:

  • Lightweight and long-lasting
  • Rounded shape: fits easily into the palm of your hand
  • Week-long battery life: forget about those daily charges!
  • Distinct and easy-to-use chip card slot and tap interface
  • PCI and EMV chip technology: fraud protection and security for you and your customers
  • Wireless and portable: take payments on the spot, anywhere in your store!

And last but not least: the new Tap & Chip Reader dock. The dock allows you to create a dedicated countertop checkout point, making the payment setup more customer-facing so that your customers feel more in control of the whole buying experience.

Sync with Shopify POS

By syncing your new Tap & Chip Reader with Shopify POS, you can take payments and manage your products and inventory all in the one place.
