Accept payments anywhere, anytime

Whether you’re running a busy coffee shop, a hotel on a remote island paradise, or an outback medical practice, Tyro has you covered. Our highly stable platform and permanent back-up system allows you to accept payments in store, on the go, anywhere and anytime.

Broadband or mobile

Tyro’s EFTPOS terminals connect to our live-live data centres using a broadband network or Telstra’s mobile 3G network.


Broadband (Ethernet or Wi-Fi) offers the fastest processing speeds with transactions taking sub 1.6 seconds. For high 3G traffic venues we recommend the use of dedicated Wi-Fi connections to avoid 3G congestion.


Tyro’s cloud-based integrated terminals use Telstra’s extensive mobile 3G network. With transactions done in less than 2 seconds, 3G offers fast speeds to rival broadband with added flexibility for those on the move.

Permanent back-up.
No more drop-outs.

At Tyro, we want you to get on with business without worrying about EFTPOS drop-outs or slow processing times. We have invested in technology that delivers a highly stable platform, so you will always stay connected. You will be able to accept payments any time with our reliable non-stop operating system. With Tyro’s proven architecture, which has been endorsed as best practice by the Reserve Bank of Australia, you know your EFTPOS will be there when you need it.

Tyro terminals automatically switch over between our ‘live-live’ data centres, which operate in separate locations and are concurrently maintained. So if you are making a big sale or you’re in the middle of happy hour, you can rely on us.

Network connectivity test

Test your connection to our data centres before you start using your terminal or when troubleshooting.

Which Tyro terminal is best for you?

We have terminals suitable for all types of businesses.

More information

We recommend the use of DHCP so you can simply “plug and play” your terminal. Tyro terminals also support static IP addressing which can be configured when you first set up your terminal, or at any time through the configuration menu.

For security reasons, Tyro doesn’t allow its EFTPOS terminals to use proxy servers.

For locations that have managed networks such as those in larger corporate settings, changes to firewall rules may be needed to allow the terminals/integration to function. See the network connectivity requirements on our Network Connectivity Test page for information about ports and IP address range.

If the internet is down, 3G not working, or you have no power, you can still process transactions offline. To see how, go to Customer Support. If your connectivity issues are ongoing, contact your IT administrator or internet service provider (ISP).
