Why is this ONLY for stripe and shopify payments?  You can easily put the firmware on it to use the authroize.net but you guys dont.  What do you guys plan on doing for MANDATORY EMV readers?

Hi Jai,

EMV introduces a very lengthly certification process for each payment gateway, card brand, and technology type our solution supports. Another challenge is that many payment gateways (including Authorize.net) have limited support for EMV transactions.

Our top priority has been to support Shopify Payments, which is what the vast majority of our POS merchants use. In the future, we will consider separate projects to certify our Shopify Tap, Chip, and Swipe Card Reader (EMV capable) with additional payment providers.

Thanks,

David

When will vape shops (Online) be able to use Shopify Payments? The extra 2% transaction fee is a deal breaker.

I don't care about vape shops but please, Shopify, do support third-party processors with your EMV reader.
