Hi, I will be vending at some outdoor festivals and want to know if I should get the "Chip & Swipe Reader" or "Shopify Tap & Chip Card Reader". Any feedback you have to share is welcome. Thank you!

Chip & Swipe reader would be more ideal for pop-up events as the Shopify Tap & Chip reader is more geared towards merchants selling in brick-and-mortar stores. That said, the Tap & chip reader is back-ordered until 2022 so if you're looking for a card reader now, then the Chip & Swipe would be your best option.
