Connecting a Card Reader Directly to Your iPhone or iPad

You can connect your Mangomint Pay card reader directly to your iPhone or iPad.

With a direct connection:

  • Booth renters or service providers can collect their own payments at the business or on the go

  • You can use one iPhone or iPad to check out clients and view the calendar

You will need an iPhone or iPad and a Bluetooth card reader. Card readers can be ordered from the Mangomint Store.

Connecting your card reader to your iPhone or iPad

Open the Mangomint app on your iPhone or iPad.

Open the menu and tap Card Readers. The Card Readers menu option only displays if you have an active Mangomint Pay account.

Tap Connect a card reader.

Turn on the card reader and make sure it's charged. Place the card reader close to your iPhone or iPad and tap Continue.

Tap Continue. If Bluetooth is disabled, you are prompted to enable it. The app will then search for available card readers.

Once you see your card reader in the list, tap Connect. If you see multiple card readers, select the one that matches your card reader's serial number. The serial number is printed on the back of the card reader.

If your card reader needs a firmware update, the app will automatically update the firmware for you.

If the card reader connection was successful, you will see the message shown below. Tap Okay. You are now ready to use your card reader to accept payments.
