With the Arcane Virtual Terminal POS, you can use a Stripe M2 or BBPOS Chipper reader to perform in-person credit card transactions directly through your Stripe account. In this Setup guide, we’ll walk you through connecting your Stripe account to the Arcane Virtual Terminal POS mobile application, connecting your Stripe M2 or BBPOS Chipper reader to the mobile app, and performing a transaction.
You should have already set up your Arcane Virtual Terminal by purchasing a license and registering your subdomain. If you haven’t yet, go back and complete all of the steps in our Arcane Virtual Terminal setup guide. You won’t be able to set up or operate your reader until you have done so.
Since the Stripe M2 and BBPOS Chipper devices are not web-based (Bluetooth connected via the iOS/Android mobile SDKs for native applications), our mobile application is required to operate the device with the Virtual Terminal. Before you can perform a transaction, you will need to connect your Stripe account to the Arcane POS mobile application. You will only need to do this setup once.
The Stripe M2 or BBPOS Chipper reader Virtual Terminal setup procedure is now complete. You are now ready to start using your reader to perform in-person credit card transactions for your business through the Arcane Virtual Terminal POS.
