GlossGenius uses an amazing piece of technology from a company called card.io which uses a phone's camera to scan the numbers on the card. This hardware-free approach not only eliminates the need to keep track of a card reader, it saves you money!
Because we've decided to implement card.io card scanning technology, we're able to provide the industry's very lowest processing fee of 2.6% regardless of whether the card is scanned or manually entered. Compare that to some competitors who charge as much as 3.5% plus a swipe fee and you can save hundreds of dollars per year!
In order to pass along these savings, our app is not compatible with chip readers, swipers, or other hardware card reading devices.
