How to scan credit cards when processing in-app payments

Follow

Being able to take payment on site through the ServiceM8 app is really convenient and great for cash flow. But, manually entering credit card numbers is time consuming.

When accepting card payments through the app via the Stripe integration, you can choose to scan the card number and expiry date with your camera rather than inputting the number manually. 

Here's how:

From the app, go to Billing then tap ( + ) to add payment

Select Card as the payment method, tap Take Payment then tap Camera

Simply hold your camera over the credit card

And it will scan and read the numbers including the expiration date

NOTE: The camera scans and inputs the card number and expiry date only. There is no photo capture button, and ServiceM8 does not store any card details.

Add the card verification code and your customer's credit card information is complete!
