Use of Affinipay card reader
Now that Affinipay has a bluetooth reader/swiper, is WildApricot going to be able to integrate that as a payment option?
This is the text from an Affinipay email:
Introducing the all-new AffiniPay for Associations mobile app and Bluetooth reader/swiper
We are thrilled to announce the launch of our brand new AffiniPay for Associations app and Bluetooth reader/swiper!
Available for both iOS and Android devices, our mobile app allows you to accept contactless payments and the latest chip card technology, making your payment processing more flexible and convenient for your members. Enter a member’s payment details manually or use our new Bluetooth reader/swiper to make it even easier to get paid on-the-go. If you’re already using one of our readers/swipers, we strongly recommend you upgrade to our latest model.

This is a major aggravation of being moved to Wild Apricot payments by Affinipay. No integration between WA website and the Affinipay credit card readers. I see WA has not responded, don't care...

I'll add my voice to the chorus. Seeing the faces of potential members fall when they realize they have to key in their credit card information is pretty disappointing and really slows down the registration process. I've seen people waiting to sign up walk away when someone can't enter their information properly.
Are there *any* card readers that work with the desktop/browser version of WA for Affinipay customers?
Just ordered several of these and really hope you will integrate with WildApricot websites... It would be a great help to our organization.
It would be REALLY nice to have this feature for both the app and desktop applications. As mentioned the reader only works with the Affinipay Mobile App (not desktop). At our events we typically have a laptop set up at registration, so it would be nice to have the reader work with the WA website or at least a desktop app if that's possible.
