To get a free credit card reader once your Vagaro credit card application is approved, follow these steps:
- Click Settings at the top of the screen.
- Select Credit Card Processing on the left side of the screen.
- Once you find the employee as well as the merchant account, select Get Your Free Reader to place the order. It typically takes about three to five business days to receive the reader once it has been ordered.
*Remember, you first have to sign up for credit card processing before ordering a free reader. Click this link for more information: How to Apply for Credit Card Processing. Also note that we are not able to integrate with third-party systems at this time so if you are using another credit card processor, you must record the transactions separately in Vagaro.
Let's get started!
