Gift and Loyalty Card Compatibility

Compatible Readers

There are two Credit Card readers compatible with Lavu Gift and Loyalty:

  • Magtek iDynamo
  • ID Tech USB Reader - Requires an Epson TM-T88V-i smart printer.


Card Compatibility 

Not all gift cards can be used with Lavu. Lavu can only guarantee that gift cards purchased through Lavu will function properly.

  • 1 to 4 digit cards cannot swipe and cannot be manually entered.
  • 5 to 14 digit cards can swipe and can be manually entered.
  • 15 and 16 digit cards cannot be swiped, but can be manually entered.
  • 17+ digit cards may or may not be swiped. It is generally recommended that customers test these cards with a compatible reader. They can be manually entered.

Note: However, Lavu Gift and Loyalty do not require a physical card to function. Locations may use a customer’s phone number or any other personally identifying set of digits instead of a card.
