You can use Stripe Terminal Chipper (U.S.) and WisePad (Canada) devices to capture in-person payments through our iOS app directly into your Stripe account.

Chipper and WisePad readers:

  1. Pair with a single iOS device via Bluetooth

  2. Can be used with their built-in rechargeable battery, or while plugged-in to a power outlet

  3. Support swiping, dipping (chip cards), Apple/Android/Samsung Pay and tap cards

Chipper is available in the U.S.

WisePad is available in Canada
