In late December, Payment for Stripe was granted access to the very limited European Stripe Terminal beta program. We’ve added support for the WisePad 3 POS, a bluetooth-enabled handheld card reader.
Enjoy lower Stripe rates of 2.7% + 5c on every transaction.
As part of this partnership, we are now able to offer card readers in several new countries including:
- New Zealand
- United Kingdom
Beta Access Required
Access to this program requires that you have a Stripe account in one of the aforementioned countries and must be completing transactions in the geographical bounds of that country. If either of these requirements are not met, you will not be able to create charges.
There are extra steps required to enable the European Stripe Terminal Beta program for your Stripe account. You must reach out to Support to get manually enrolled into the beta.
You'll need to get in touch with our Support team to gain manual access to the EU Stripe Terminal beta. You can contact us at: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Supported Terminal Card Readers
The only supported card reader in these EU countries is the BBPOS WisePad 3. You can find the product sheet here, which explains several troubleshooting tips and some other vital information. The WisePad 3 is a bluetooth-enabled card reader, which can be paired with the Payment for Stripe iOS app.
Additional features include:
- Bluetooth enabled
- Chip, tap or swipe
- EMV & PCI-compliant
- iOS & Android
- £49 (UK) — €59 (EU)
Setup & Registration
With a few simple steps, you can be up and running with the WisePad 3 card reader. You'll be able to accept new payment methods, provide for contactless payments to keep your store safe and enable Strong Customer Authentication without any additional setup or configuration.
