Ingenico to unveil new Bluetooth mobile card reader

The new card reader, known as RP450BT, includes ‘Just Works’ pairing functionality for seamless Bluetooth coupling, an innovative design to increase stability and portability, standard compatibility with iOS and Android handhelds, among others.

Two docking options including a desktop cradle and a device clip-on are available with the card reader. The cradle offers the flexibility to use the RP450BT as a desktop reader and connects the device either wirelessly or through USB.

Using the clip-on accessory, merchants can easily attach the device to a smartphone or tablet via a small plate, when the RP450BT is not being used.

Ingenico Group executive vice president for North America Jacques Guerin said: “As omni-channel continues to play an important role in how merchants create a better experience for their customers, it’s important that they’re aware of all of the solutions that are truly available to them, including in-store, online, mobile and unattended.

“We are excited to be a part of TRANSACT this year and look forward to meeting with ISO, acquirer, processor and ISV communities, and the exciting exchange of innovative ideas that occur every year.”
