Answer was acceptable. However, the text required to be more specific since not all DIP card readers hold the card until the operation is complete, and for this reason it was necessary to translate:
Swipe card reader: lector de tarjeta de deslizamiento
DIP card reader: lector de tarjeta de inserción frontal.
Thank you very much!!

Dip


Explanation:
I have never actually seen this word used, but:

A swipe reader is the kind where you move the card vertically. A dip reader is like a bank machine where you push the card in, but in the case of a dip reader, you immediately pull it out instead of the machine taking your card. Citibank uses this type.
