After activating Kareo Patient Collect and completing the payments setup, System Administrators can consolidate their payment processors for front office and back office into one solution with the Stripe credit card terminal.  A WisePOS E card reader is used with the Stripe terminal to offer a reliable and secure in-person payments solution that supports chip, swipe, and contactless payments, including Apple Pay and Google Pay.
