Joist Payments is now powered by PayPal.
If you’re still using Joist Payments with WePay, make the switch now to avoid any interruptions to your business.
Make the switch
Joist Payments with PayPal is everything you loved about the old Joist Payments, plus powerful new features like Instant Payouts and Buy Now, Pay Later (which gets you paid now while your client takes their time paying the money back to PayPal).

I’m ready, let’s make the switch
Please note: we are no longer taking card reader orders at this time. If you already own a Joist card reader it will continue to operate as normal.
1 Charge the card reader in any USB port
Every charge holds 200 - 400 swipes.
Note: Don’t worry about turning on Card Reader’s BlueTooth just yet. It needs to be connected within Joist (not through Bluetooth in iOS Settings)
2 Create a new payment on an invoice.
Payments > New > Process Credit Card
3 Enter payment amount & connect to reader via BlueTooth
Ensure BlueTooth on both phone and card reader is on.
4 Insert or swipe the credit card
If your client pays with an EMV or "chip card," you'll need to insert rather than swipe.
5 Collect signature & email receipt
Email your invoice to your client to send them the payment receipt.
