The Simple Salon integration with Stripe allows you to connect a Swipe Card Reader to your computer and take credit card and debit card payments. Simply swipe the credit card or debit card through the card reader, which is attached to your computer and linked to your Simple Salon, and the payments will be processed instantly.
The payment gateway being used is Stripe. When the card is swiped and the payment is processed, the funds will arrive in your bank after a few days.
The swipe card reader doesn't totally replace the EFTPOS machine, as you will still require the ETFPOS machine for EFTPOS, Savings or Cheque account payments. The swipe card reader is a secure payment gateway for credit cards and debit cards.
There is a very small surcharge per transaction via the card reader, just like any normal credit card surcharge.
