Learn how to use the BBPOS Chipper 2X BT payment terminal.

BBPOS Chipper 2X BT

The BBPOS Chipper 2X BT is a handheld payment terminal that's available to use with Finix's Device SDKs. It uses Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) to connect to your mobile phone or device. The device does not have a PIN pad, so you won't be able to accept PIN-entry cards. You can still accept debit cards, but you won't unlock the lower interchange rates that you would with a pin entered.

Charging the Device

You can charge the device using any certified Micro-USB cord. The payment terminal lasts one full business day on a full charge without access to a power source.

Using the Device

The power button on the side of the device is the primary way you interact with the device.

Powering On

With the terminal off, you can turn on the device by clicking the power button. The device lights up at this point and searches for a connection for 5 minutes before automatically turning off.


When the device connects to your app, it will blink a blue light. If the device is inactive for more than 30 seconds, it enters a sleep mode to save power. The payment terminal stays connected in sleep mode and automatically wakes to resume processing payments.

Powering Off

After 10 hours of connected inactivity, the device will turn off. You can turn off the device at any point by holding the power button until the light turns off.

Status Lights

Next to the power button, is a light which communicates the status of the device:
