PAX Payment Terminal Setup

30
Nov

A Credit Authorization Terminal Assistant exists on the dashboard to help you with this step. Continue with this article if you have already tried that method and are still having problems. 

First, create a new device in the checkout profile. To do this, go to Settings-> POS Profiles and edit the POS profile in which you want to add the credit terminal. Scroll down, click Add Device, select Credit Terminal next to Type and PAX Credit Terminal next to Device, hit OK.

The next step is to add a POS and port. Click Add POS and select the specific device you want the credit terminal to connect to. Fill in the credit terminal’s IP address next to Port Parameter and click Apply.

Finding the IP address of your Pax credit terminal

first, make sure it is connected to the same network as your POS terminals. Next, power the device on and hit MenuThe credit terminal will then ask for a password. The password varies by device and can be obtained from the company from which you obtained the device. After entering the Password, touch the down arrow until you see Communication and touch it. It will ask for the password again, enter it and touch the down arrow again until you see LAN Parameters and touch it. Next, touch IP AddressThe credit terminal will display its IP address. This will be a 12 digit number with each set of three numbers separated by a period. Eliminate all leading ZEROs from this number (leaving a single ZERO if necessary) and enter it into the Port Parameter field as described above.

EXAMPLE* If your credit terminal displays 010.001.000.247, enter 10.1.0.247 into the Port Parameter field. 

In the last step, you must customize the payment methods. Navigate to Settings > Payment Methods. Edit or add a credit payment method. Make sure the Payment Service is set to Credit Terminal and the Processing Type is set to Default.

Note* It is necessary to restart the POS software for the change to take effect after you update the master data at checkout when making changes to the device profile.
