The Walker: The Mobile EMV Solution for the EMV Age

Anywhere Commerce Specs

With EMV acceptance becoming more and more prevalent, there is a growing need for mobile merchants to have EMV capable equipment. The Walker 1.0 EMV mobile swiper fills that with ease. Like other mobile phone swipers, it has an audio jack that plugs into a smartphone and a magstrip card reader. But it stands out as one of the few mobile swipers with an EMV chip card reader. This update is a mini walk-through for some of the software features available and is designed to be used as a way to help you help your merchants.

How to Activate Demo Mode on the App

If using a card reader, your merchant should make sure the Device setting is adjusted properly. Save Settings before running any test transactions.
