Why does my PayPal reader decline straight away?

Question

When I run a transaction in Vend using PayPal, my PayPal reader shows it is connected to Bluetooth, but it doesn't allow me to process a sale. 

Setup

  • Vend on iPad
  • Paypal integrated payments

Answer

The new Bluetooth PayPal reader's don't need to be connected to your iPad's bluetooth settings before running a transaction. 

Additional Information

Once the reader is connected initially, Vend remembers that reader. When you run a transaction and choose PayPal, Vend detects the reader and completes the sale.
