The BBPOS Chipper Mini 2 device is nearing end-of-life for use with the CardPointe Mobile application and the Bolt Mobile SDKs. This device is being replaced by the ID TECH VP3300 mobile payment reader.
After January 1, 2020, you will no longer be able to order the Chipper Mini 2. You can continue to use your existing BBPOS devices after this date, however, only the VP3300 will be available for new or replacement device orders.
The VP3300 introduces support for EMV (chip) cards and support for contactless (NFC) payments is coming soon.
The following table describes the differences between the Chipper Mini 2 and VP3300:
|Feature||Chipper Mini 2||VP3300|
|Connectivity||Aux||Bluetooth 4.0 (BLE)|
|Payment Types||Swipe (MSR)|
The CardPointe Mobile application will continue to support the BBPOS Chipper Mini 2; however, the new version of CardPointe Mobile only supports EMV (chip) card transactions using the ID TECH VP3300 device.
Version 3.6 of the CardPointe Mobile app for iOS, and Version 3.3 of the CardPointe Mobile app for Android introduced support for the new CardPointe Mobile reader. See the CardPointe Mobile App User's Guide for the latest information on the CardPointe Mobile app.
