PayTrace's Supported and Compatible Hardware

EMV Card Reader

IDEM-241A and IDEM-251P

The IDEM-241A is the preferred hardware as it is pre-loaded with the AES encryption. However, the more common IDEM-251P may be re-configured by our authorized distributors so as to give you access to more inventory when ordering the Augusta card reader. It is important to always ensure you are ordering the PayTrace configuration by clicking on one of the links below.
