The AgentCASH card reader and a mobile device talk to one another using Bluetooth and thus need to be paired to create the Bluetooth connection.
To establish a Bluetooth connection (pairing devices):
- Turn on the card reader by pressing the blue power button on the top of the reader.
- Activate the Bluetooth pairing function on the card reader by holding down the Enter (✔) button or a Bluetooth button for 10 seconds. (When the indicator lamp on the Bluetooth button rapidly flashes a blue light and the Bluetooth icon on the display of the reader is rapidly blinking, the card reader is now ready to be paired.)
- Go to your mobile device Settings->Devices->Bluetooth and turn on the Bluetooth connection.
- Select the card reader from the list of available Bluetooth devices. Your card reader will be titled as AgentCASH-last three digits of s/n (e.g. AgentCASH123). Select it to pair.
- A PIN will display on the screen of the mobile device. Compare it with the passkey displayed on the card reader.
- Press Enter (✔) on the card reader to confirm that the PIN and the passkey are the same.
- Click OK on the mobile device to complete the pairing. The blue light will now slowly flash to show that Bluetooth is on.
The card reader is now listed as Paired under the list of Bluetooth devices on the mobile.
Note 1.: On Android ver. 8.0 the window appears:
Tap PAIR to confirm pairing without selecting the checkbox.
After devices have been successfully paired via Bluetooth, select the card reader in the POS application:
- Sign in to the application.
- Open the application menu by tapping (≡) and select Settings->Card reader.
- Check if the card reader is marked with the orange thick (AgentCASH777 ✔). If not, select the card reader in the list by tapping on it.
From now on, your card reader will auto-connect to the app whenever you turn it on.
Note 2.: The card reader should be paired with only one mobile device at a time.
