Open your orderbird-app. During the billing process you can pick “card”. The orderbird- app will connect automatically with the card reader. 

Follow the instructions in your app, alternatively on the display of your card reader. During the first transaction the card reader will set up. This process can take a few minutes.

It is possible to ignore or delete other forms of payment like EC- or credit card by entering the preference section of your orderbird- app, click payment, forms of payment and edit. 

 

IMPORTANT:

It is not possible to connect multiple devices to the card reader. As soon as the card reader is connected to a device (for example an iPad) it can be used exclusively by this single device.
