Card Swipe

Corduro PayMobile is all about mobile payments, mobile wallet, credit card processing, mobile credit card swipe.

Use the card reader with PayMobile to process credit cards. Corduro offers a card reader that plugs into your audio jack. To use it, plug the reader into your audio output jack. Make sure that your headset volume is turned up to full volume and that you have a good network connection to your phone. The reader works by sending an audio signal between your phone and the swipe so if the volume is not turned up they will not be able to hear each other.

Once your card swipe is plugged in, there is nothing to setup. You can begin using your card reader anytime. You will want to make sure when you are in a payment acceptance screen that you see the card reader icon displayed (above the word “Tax” in the image above). If you do not see the icon displayed you may want to unplug the reader and plug it back in waiting a few seconds for it to find and initialize the device.

It is helpful to know that the card reader works right from the screen where you enter the payment. You should not push the “Charge” button as that is for other forms of payment or hand keying credit card information.

Troubleshooting Tips

If you are having any trouble with your swipe device you may want to test it. To test the card reader go to “Me”, “Settings”, “Device” and swipe a credit card. The card information should be displayed if it is working properly. If there is a problem, an error message will alert you or the test will time out.
