What is a card reader and how much does it cost?

The Shopify card reader plugs right into your iPad and iPhone so you can use it to swipe and accept credit card payments. Your customers will sign their names right on the iPad, with signatures stored safely online. With the Shopify card reader, you’ll pay very low credit card swipe rates using Shopify Payments. Shopify card readers can be purchased for $19. Currently they can only be used in the US and Canada. You can purchase a card reader in Canada at: hardware.shopify.ca/products/card-reader or in the US at hardware.shopify.com/products/card-reader.
