Pairing older Zettle card reader models

The first time you start the card reader, it automatically enters pairing mode.

  1. If it’s not the first time you’ve started the card reader, press the Bluetooth button and release when the pairing symbol is displayed.
  2. Go to the iPad settings and turn Bluetooth on.
  3. Wait for ‘Zettle ###’ to appear and tap to connect (where the ### represents the last 3 digits of the card reader’s serial number, which you can locate on the back of the device). A six-digit code appears on the iPad and the same code should appear on your card reader.
  4. Confirm on both devices to pair them.
  5. Open the Zettle app and select Settings > Integrations.
  6. In Card payments, select Zettle.
  7. Select Zettle Settings and enter your Zettle email address and password. 

You can now start to receive card payments.​
