Magnetic Stripe and the iZettle Reader 2
The iZettle Reader 2 does not accept magnetic stripe cards. This functionality was removed for security reasons and helps keep businesses safe by decreasing the chance of fraudulent transactions. Chip and Pin and Contactless transactions are a much safer form of accepting credit cards.

As a seller it is important for both your own and your customer’s safety that you check:
- that the card holder’s signature is on the back of the card
- that the card holder’s signature on the device screen matches that on the back of the card
- that the card does not bear any traces of alterations
- that the card has not expired
- that the card has been issued by one of the card issuers listed in the general terms and conditions.
As an additional security measure, you can check the cardholder's ID to see that it matches the name on the card.
If such a card is inserted into the mobile card reader, you will be prompted to select either “debit” or “credit”.
