You will need to purchase the Verifone Card Reader from Stripe in order to proceed.

You may only have your terminal connected to POS or Billing Manager - they cannot be online at the same time.

A. Plug Reader into Power

  1. Slide off the bottom cover on the reader.

  2. Plug connector cable into the port and slide cover back on.

  3. Plug power adapter into connector cable and into a power outlet.

  4. Wait for it to boot, which may take several minutes.

Leaving the device on for extended periods is expected. Unplug it to turn it off if needed.

B. Connect Reader to Internet

You will need to connect your Verifone card reader to your local network to use it. This can be done via WiFi or an ethernet cable.

Connect via WiFi

Connecting over WiFi is a beta feature. For production use, have an Ethernet connection ready as a backup, in case of degraded networks or connectivity issues.

Your WiFi network must use WPA-Personal or WPA2-Personal encryption and be password protected. WiFi is not supported for non-password-protected networks or enterprise networks.

  1. If you’re setting up a new device, follow the on-screen prompts to connect to the internet using WiFi. To start over, press the red X button on the keypad.

  2. To switch networks, or connect an already online reader to a WiFi network, press 0WIFI (09434) on the keypad and follow the prompts.

    • Attempting to join a new network disconnects the reader from any existing wireless connection. There is no fallback to the previously connected network.

Connect via Ethernet Cable

  1. Plug an ethernet cable from your router into the ETH port on the reader's connector cable.

  2. The reader will attempt to connect with Stripe and may update itself.

C. Add Reader/Process a Payment

  1. Enter 07139 into the terminal and it will display a registration code.

    • If using the card reader for both PoS and Billing manager, write down this code to use each time you switch between the two.

  2. On your computer, navigate to your website and Sign In.

  3. In the side menu, click Business Tools > Billing Manager.

  4. Find the account you'd like to process a payment for. Click on their name.

  5. Click on Payments...

  6. Click Payment Methods > Credit Card.

  7. Click Start Credit Card Payment.

  8. Click Add New Reader...

  9. Enter the reader's registration code from step 1.

  10. Enter a Label, such as "Front Desk."

  11. Click Register.

  12. Click Close.

  13. You can now select the card reader from the drop-down and click Start to process the payment.
