submitted by Starlit - 8 months ago
  • A: Great question. The Lightning connector is used to connect Apple mobile devices like iPhones, iPads, and iPods to other devices. This is not an attachment, its a description of the type of connector on the reader.

Q: Can this be used with no wifi? Can this be used with i phone 12 s? What if people have the chip card, can they still just swipe, or do you need additional equipment?

submitted by crafter - 3 years ago
  • A: Hi Crafter - Great Questions... we've Got answers! The Magstripe reader allows you to accept cards using the Square App which can be used with Wifi or Cellular Data. The Lightning Connector is compatible with the iPhone 12, but does not accept chip cards. If you're interested in accepting chip cards check out our Contactless and Chip Card Reader.

It took several swipes, maybe like 50 for it to finally grab the credit card. Will be returning. App is pretty good.
1 reply from Square team - 3 years ago
We are sorry to hear the frustration regarding your reader. They should recognize the card on the first swipe, so it sounds like either the magstripe on the card was worn down or the reader itself needed some troubleshooting. We would love to work with you to make sure you're up and running. Feel free to reach out to us via email, phone, in app messenger, or social media!

I purchased two of them for my dad's estate sale that we ran last weekend. The % that they take for the transaction is so much better than worrying if a check is going to go through! They worked GREAT!
