You can swipe and read data from custom gift cards, but you will need to get the BINs whitelisted. To get your BINs whitelisted, please contact dev@clover.com.

Also note, your app will not be able to access the magnetic stripe reader directly. You will need to go through the Secure Pay app. If you are using a custom tender, that should work fine.

Thanks miguel for the response, It seems that clover supports scanning gift card from external terminal . What will be the process in that case?

Also If I get my BINs whitelisted from clover then will all the applications on tender screen will get card information or only my tender apps?

To use an external magnetic swipe reader, you will need to get that device whitelisted, but your app will interact with the hardware directly. For whitelisting, it should be only for a specific app, so other apps won't have access to that data.
