What adapter do i need for my square cars reader to plug into my galaxy s7? I have a male end, where can I get the converter or what are my options. Typing in the card every time is annoying!

Galaxy S7 has a headphone jack so all readers will work. Compatibility page

Hey there @Nicolek - thanks for making your first post to the 👥 community. 

 

@RHatch is right, the model of phone you have has a headphone jack, allowing you to connect the Magstripe reader and Chip Card reader. If you have the Contactless + Chip Card reader, you can connect this using Bluetooth. 

 

Please let us know if you still need help connecting a reader to your device.

I see how to connect the swipe reader to the headphone jack of my android phone, but how do I connect the chip reader?  I have the charger, but it has one small end and one USB end, but both the chip reader and my phone only have the small end (for recharging).  Help!

If you are talking about the Chip reader. You must charge in by plugging it into your computer or phone charger.  You can't charge it while connected to the phone.  I will not work.  Here is the help page with more information

@MHBB the chip reader connects via Bluetooth.  no need to connect it directly to your phone, the cable is just for charging.

Lets be clear.  

The Square Chip Card Reader does NOT connect via Bluetooth.

The Square Contactless and Chip Reader does connect via Bluetooth.
