Charge the Poynt Card Reader
Step 1 of the Poynt Card Reader get started series
Your Poynt Card Reader comes packaged with a charging cradle and USB-C cable that you can use to charge it up.
For best results, make sure to charge your Card Reader completely before you use it. This is especially important when you’re using it for the first time. We know you’re excited to use it, but it won’t take too long to get things set up!
- Connect the USB-C cable to your Poynt Card Reader, then connect it to a power source. There are two ways to connect your Card Reader:
- Place the Card Reader in the charging cradle, plug in the USB-C cable, then connect it to a power source.
- Plug the USB-C cable directly into the Card Reader and connect it to a power source.
- Once the Card Reader is fully charged (2-3 hours), press the power button on the side of the device to turn it on. The LED on the side will flash blue to let you know it’s ready to connect.
