Pairing your POS/PMS with your EFTPOS machine

Step 1

To process integrated EFTPOS transactions, your machine must be paired with your Tyro compatible POS/PMS. When you see the prompt Pair with POS, press Start.

Step 2

Your merchant ID and terminal ID will be displayed on the EFTPOS machine. Use this information to input into your POS/PMS software.

Step 3

Initiate the pairing sequences through your POS/PMS software before pressing Start on your EFTPOS machine.

  • For detailed instructions go to help.tyro.com, and search for your POS/PMS. If you can’t find the relevant information here, please contact your POS/PMS provider.
Step 4

Once successfully paired, you may initiate a test transaction via your POS/PMS

  • If you have multiple EFTPOS machines, repeat the process for each machine to be paired to a POS/PMS.

Tyro EFTPOS machines have three integration modes; Standalone, Integrated (transaction information is sent to the EFTPOS machine from the POS/PMS), and Pay@Table1 (the machine pulls the transaction information from a dedicated POS/PMS server).

  • 1. To change the integration method on the Tyro EFTPOS machine, press Menu, select Configuration (5) and enter your Admin Password.
  • 2. Select Integrated EFTPOS (1) and Select Integration Mode (1).
  • 3. Choose from Standalone (1), Integrated (2), or Pay@Table (3) (if applicable) and press OK.
