Turn on/off

If you turn on the payment terminal for the first time, or after it was off for a long time, it may make a maintenance call to synchronize the configuration and update the software. This can take 10 to 20 minutes.

When connected to a power supply, the battery charges. An icon at the top of the display indicates the battery-charge level.

Turn on the terminal:

  • Connect the terminal to a power supply

  • Press and hold the Confirm key until the display turns on. Note that the battery charge level needs to be high enough.

While starting, the display turns on and off a few times.

Turn off the terminal:

  • Press and hold the Cancel key until (after 5-20 seconds) the display turns off

  • Go to the Admin menu and select Power off.

View, print, and reset totals

The terminal can generate a Totals report. This gives an overview of the total amounts for charges, refunds, gratuities (tips), and cancellations that the terminal processed since the last reset. By resetting the report, you can use this functionality to get day totals or shift totals.

To obtain the Totals report:

  1. Go to the Admin menu.

  2. Select Totals.

  3. Select an action: View: This displays the Totals report for the period shown at the top of the report. Print > Yes: Prints the Totals report.

(Optional) To reset the counter after printing the (day or shift) totals, select Yes at the Reset totals? prompt. Reset > Yes: Starts a new reporting period. The totals from the previous period are no longer shown.

Reprint transaction receipt

To print another copy of the shopper or merchant receipt for a specific transaction:

  1. Go to the Admin menu.

  2. Select Transactions.

  3. Select the transaction that you want to reprint a receipt for.

  4. Select Receipts and then the receipt you want to print: Shopper receipt or Merchant receipt.

  5. Select Print.

  6. Select Cancel to go back to the point where you can select and print the other receipt, or select Cancel repeatedly until the Admin menu closes.
