Loyverse POS merchants can accept credit card payments via PayPal Zettle and it is available to customers in the USA, Brazil, Denmark, Finland, Great Britain, Italy, Mexico, Norway, Spain, Sweden, and the Netherlands.
Before connecting a card reader, you need to create an account in PayPal Zettle and receive the device. Integration with Loyverse POS works on the card reader Zettle Reader 2.
Note: PayPal Zettle works only with mobile devices with turned-on geolocation.
