Credit Cards with iPad Readers


This article will provide some information on how to use an iPad to process credit cards. This will allow you to use QuickPay on mobile devices.

Important Note

  • CivicRec does not officially support Card Readers on iPads. This article only documents a process you can follow to possibly make it work with your system. 
  • iPad support requires an iPad Air or later device. Your device must have a lightning port.

iPads and Credit Cards

You can use a Magtek Card Reader and a Lightning to USB Camera Adapter, which allows you to plug a card reader into an iPad. The swiping function should work, although the hardware will hide the virtual keyboard when plugged in. 

To view the keyboard, you can unhide the keyboard by long-pressing the arrow in the keyboard bar. You can also use a Bluetooth Keyboard.
