[How-to] Enable Credit Card Payments via Stripe Terminal in EZRentOut
Share this article:

Terminals for Stripe and EZRentOut enable point-of-sale (POS) transactions when your customers rent out or return the items. By integrating EZRentOut with a Stripe payment gateway, you can now charge credit card payments at the POS terminals easily. As we have provided the terminal support by BBPOS WisePOS E, you have to enable the Stripe terminal, connect it with EZRentOut, and make the transactions.

Let’s discuss how you can set up and implement this feature. 

How to enable Stripe Terminal

Enable this feature from Settings → Add Ons → Enable Stripe Terminal. 

For successful integration, you must enable the Stripe add-on beforehand to enable the Stripe terminal.

Once you have clicked on Enable, you can then add the reader details. The Reader would be the machine through which you are looking to make the transactions.

Before you can connect your EZRentOut account to BBPOS WisePOS E, you must register the reader to your account. In order to enter reader details here, you must have a Stripe reader account. The account on Stripe is registered by creating a location and adding a reader. When you’re registered on Stripe, you’ll be given a registration code, which you’ll input in EZRentOut Reader’s detail section to add as a Stripe reader. Recent updates by Stripe now make it mandatory for you to add location details while adding a reader.

Adding location details to a reader

You can add your location by logging in to your Stripe account and selecting the Terminal settings option.
