The BT card readers I ordered are not compatible with one of my iPads.

I ordered four QB21 bluetooth card readers to use with multiple iOS devices. The card readers are being advertised as compatible with iOS 9.3.5. As it turns out, the card reader is not compatible with my 2011 iPad 2. When I go in the GoPayment app settings and select "set up bluetooth reader", I get a message "This device isn't compatible with our new card readers". 

Can you send me one of those old-fashioned headphone jack readers. Seems like you used to provide those at no charge. I'd also be interested to hear what the options are for getting a refund for the reader I am unable to use.


Hi there, jakkanen,

I want to make sure this issue gets resolved.

Each Bluetooth card readers for your Payments account is subject to compatibility requirements. Here's an article to guide you with the compatible devices for your card reader: QB21 and QB31 Mobile Card Reader Compatibility and Setup

Since you're unable to pair your reader with your 2011 iPad 2 device, you may need to get in touch with our GoPayment Support. There they can discuss with you the replacement and refund policies in a secure environment.

Here's how you can contact them:

People come to QuickBooks Learn & Support for help and answers—we want to let them know that we're here to listen and share our knowledge. We do that with the style and format of our responses. Here are five guidelines:

  1. Keep it conversational. When answering questions, write like you speak. Imagine you're explaining something to a trusted friend, using simple, everyday language. Avoid jargon and technical terms when possible. When no other word will do, explain technical terms in plain English.
  2. Be clear and state the answer right up front. Ask yourself what specific information the person really needs and then provide it. Stick to the topic and avoid unnecessary details. Break information down into a numbered or bulleted list and highlight the most important details in bold.
  3. Be concise. Aim for no more than two short sentences in a paragraph, and try to keep paragraphs to two lines. A wall of text can look intimidating and many won't read it, so break it up. It's okay to link to other resources for more details, but avoid giving answers that contain little more than a link.
  4. Be a good listener. When people post very general questions, take a second to try to understand what they're really looking for. Then, provide a response that guides them to the best possible outcome.
  5. Be encouraging and positive. Look for ways to eliminate uncertainty by anticipating people's concerns. Make it apparent that we really like helping them achieve positive outcomes.
