New PayPal Here reader with Windows, EMV support to arrive


San Jose, Calif. – PayPal will release a new PayPal Here credit card reader that will include payment support for Microsoft Surface and other Windows devices. Later this year, PayPal will release an EMV-compliant PayPal Here reader to the U.S.

PayPal Here has already been offering an EMV-compliant reader in the U.K. and Australia. The new reader will offer support for iOS, Android, and Windows. An updated PayPal Here reader is being developed to support EMV and contactless transactions for small businesses that connect to mobile devices via Bluetooth, enabling them to accept any chip card, magnetic stripe card, or contactless payment form, including mobile wallets

With help from Microsoft, select small businesses can now accept credit card, debit card, and PayPal transactions using the Windows platform via the PayPal Here software development kit (SDK). The PayPal Here app will be released in the near future.

PayPal Here compatibility will become available for the Surface Pro 3 tablet, the Lumia 830 and 635 smartphones, and other devices that operate on Windows 8.1. In addition, Microsoft and PayPal will be working with ISV partners such as Canvas and iConnectPOS to develop custom business apps for the Windows SDK platform.
