PayPal is shipping two new mPOS devices, one which accepts card swipe transactions and another for chip and tap payments.

Pitched at mobile small businesses, the readers are designed to help users accept payments nearly anywhere, quickly and securely.

Smaller than a deck of cards for easy portability, they connect to mobile devices via Bluetooth, and include a rechargeable li-ion battery.

PayPal is charging $24.99 for the swipe reader and $59.99 for the chip and tap option, which accepts contactless card payments, as well as Apple Pay, Google Pay and Samsung Pay.

The PayPal Here SDK has also been updated to support the new devices and to make it easier to build EMV-compliant credit card processing into other mobile POS platforms.
