With the new iZettle 2 reader came a new iZettle SDK, this was added to the Vend app in a recent update to allow the iZettle 2 reader to work with Vend.

We've now released the 3.0.6 Vend app update which includes support for the iZettle 2 reader.

3. Follow the steps here to add the iZettle payment type to your account (if you haven't already) and connect your reader to the iPad.

4. You may need to tap Connect card reader in the Settings - Hardware - iZettle screen if the reader doesn't automatically display on the page.

5. You'll then be ready to take sales with your new reader!
