You are not required to swipe cards to charge them in TherapyNotes, but we strongly recommend it. Swiping cards reduces the chance of data entry error and decreases processing time. We recommend purchasing a USB card reader to process cards with your TherapyNotes account.
At this time, TherapyNotes credit card processing does not support the use of EMV (chip cards) or contactless payment, nor do we recommend a card reader for iOS or Android devices.
Recommended USB Card Reader for Windows & MacOS
TherapyNotes recommends MagTek models of card readers, specifically DynaMag, but you can use any card reader that meets the following specifications.
- USB HID Keyboard Emulation
- Supports Track-2 and Track-3 reading (3-Track Swipes)
