The MH Pay app linked to our credit card reader is great for accepting payment on the fly! These devices will help you with concessions and events. You will see transactions in your Orders and Payout reports, but purchases will not connect to products in the Store or track inventory. Customers and Memberships will need to be manually entered.
Download the MH Pay app from the apple store and a order your credit card reader via your MemberHub store admin to get started.
The reader can only pair with one device at a time. So for example, if you want 4 credit card readers available for use, you will also need 4 iOS devices with MH Pay installed. Each reader can then be paired with its respective device.
Card Reader Instructions:
Ordering your Reader
Order your reader directly through your MemberHub store administration site. Visit the settings page and click Order a Stripe Reader.

When the reader is connect to the MH Pay app, its status light shines steady blue. If inactive for more than 30 seconds, it enters standby mode to conserve power, and the status light begins flashing at 5-second intervals. The reader stays connected to your iOS device while in standby and automatically exits standby mode when you resume activity.
The reader automatically turns off after 10 hours of inactivity. To turn the reader off manually, press and hold the power button until the status light goes out. You don’t need to turn off the reader to conserve power.
