- This screen appears for a successful pairing.
- Once you've selected the customer and added the items to the Checkout screen, tap Pay with Card.
- Have the customer select a Tip option. Tap Split to split the tip if multiple service providers have been added to the Checkout screen.
- If you selected Split, enter the amount for each employee, and then tap Continue.
- Tap Next after selecting the tip.
- Have the customer sign on the screen and tap Charge Card when you're ready.
- Tap or dip the card into the reader to process the payment.
Unassigning a Reader
When you connect a chip reader to a device, it assigns the reader to that specific device. If another business attempts to use that reader, they'll see a popup stating that the reader is assigned to another business. This means that the other business must unassign the reader first.
- To unassign a reader tap More.
- Select EMV Reader.
- At the bottom of the screen, tap Unassign Reader to disconnect the reader from the device.
- Confirm the unassign action.
Firmware updates keep your EMV reader compatible and current with new media. To update the Firmware of the chip reader, follow the steps below.
- Tap More at the bottom of the screen.
- You'll see a notification to the right of the EMV Reader option. This indicates that an upgrade is available. Select this option.
- Tap Install Now.
- You'll be able to see the progress of the installation.
- The device will auto-connect and display the updated information once the installation is complete.
