Bluetooth payment terminal

This chapter describes the settings of the payment terminal controls for a Bluetooth connected terminal. The procedure below is related to the previous chapterConnecting and Configuring a Payment Terminal.


Pairing the terminal with a touch cash register

The payment terminal is connected to the touch cash register using a Bluetooth connection. So before using the terminal itself and configuring the payment terminal driver, you have to pair it with the cash register.


On the main screen use the gesture to pull down the settings bar and click on the cogwheel to enter the Android system settings.




In the settings list, click on Bluetooth.




First enable the Bluetooth connection by pushing the switch 03 to the right. Then click on the found device in the list 04 represented by its MAC address or bank identifier in the format RPOSXXXX where X stands for the numbers - this is the payment terminal. The payment terminal must have the Bluetooth connection activated. Otherwise the cash register will not find it, so it will not be displayed on the device list.




Other devices may also be represented by the MAC address on the list. So the MAC address of the payment terminal on this list must correspond to the MAC address you find on the bottom side of the payment terminal, or the address you see on the terminal when switching it on.



Once you click on the found device in the list, the dialog to enter the PIN appears. To pair, enter 1111 and click on OK.



Now your payment terminal is successfully paired with the cash register and you can go to the next step - the installation of the payment terminal driver as described further.


Installation and initial setting of a payment terminal driver

For the progress of installation and initial setting of the driver up to the selection of the connection type, please consult the chapter Connecting and Configuring a Payment Terminal. Then continue as described below.


Setting a payment terminal driver for Bluetooth connection


After clicking on the Bluetooth option (see the previous chapter) enter the terminal MAC address. You can find it on the list of paired devices, see the first step Pairing terminal with touch cash register, on the bottom side of the terminal or the MAC address is shown on the terminal display when turning it on. The MAC address must be in the format XX:XX:XX:XX:XX:XX, e.g. 00:11:09:95:26:FA.

When the correct MAC address is entered, click OK.




You find the MAC address on the bottom side next to the label BT Adr: (see the picture). In this case, the correct MAC address is 54:7F:54:3E:78:24, skip the first two characters.




Finally check the entered data for correctness and save all with the SAVE button. Leave the option Saving complete communication records unchecked.




Now you can check the correctness of all settings and whether the cash register is able to communicate with the terminal. Now use the button PAY to make a test 1 CZK transaction with a real debit/credit card. For each option, use the arrows to select the type of the test transaction 01 and its currency 02. If everything is set correctly, you will see the information TRANSACTION IN PROGRESS and you will see the amount of 1 CZK be paid on your terminal. You do not have to finish this transaction, just cancel it directly on the terminal.

If the cash register is unable to communicate with the payment terminal, a warning message appears. If that happens, ask your IT consultant or terminal provider for advice about what steps you should take.



Advanced options for Sonet and Monet terminals

Printing receipts using an external application

This option allows you to print records about card payment from the cash register application on the receipt. It is again available via the three dots icon in the top right corner after clicking on Settings (see the previous chapter). For enabling printing on receipts, activate this option. Printing using an external application is only supported by Sonet and Monet payment terminals.
