How Do I Pair My Mobile Card Reader or Chip Card Reader?

Pairing Your Mobile Card Reader


In order to connect your mobile card reader to your device, insert the dongle into the headphone jack of your mobile device, then follow the instructions outlined in the Invoice2go app under Settings>Client Payment Options>PayPal Here.


Pairing Your Chip Card Reader


To pair the Bluetooth enabled PayPal Here device, first make sure you are utilizing a bluetooth-enabled smartphone or tablet.

  1. Turn on your Bluetooth reader. A green light will blink followed by the blue Bluetooth light. If the card reader is on but all the lights are off, press a key on the PayPal Here device to wake it up.
  2. Select the PayPal Here reader from the list of available Bluetooth devices on your phone or tablet. Your card reader will be listed as “PayPal” plus the last three digits of the serial number on the top of the card reader. Once you have manually paired your device, it will pair automatically moving forward.

Once you have paired your PayPal Here reader with your Invoice2go account, the reader will automatically connect moving forward so you can get straight into accepting payments from your customers.
