Using Unencrypted Card Readers
Kiosk Pro Enterprise currently integrates the SDK for three specific IDTech card readers which are available as unencrypted readers:
- UniMag II and the Shuttle, which use the audio jack connector,
- iMag Pro, which uses Apple's 30-pin connector,
- iMag Pro II, which uses Lightning connector.
We generally recommend using encrypted readers for credit card transactions where the encrypted string is passed directly to the card processor who then handles unencryption. Kiosk Pro is not designed to unencrypt card data.
These IDTech readers can also be ordered with encryption so please order carefully. The Magtek iDynamo, which is also supported by Kiosk Pro Enterprise, is only available as an encrypted device.
