Connect an accessory to the Poynt Smart Terminal

Connect accessories such as cash drawers, scanners, and scales to your Poynt Smart Terminal by using a USB, network, or Bluetooth connection. You can also connect your Smart Terminal to a standalone printer.

  1. Plug your USB cord into the Smart Terminal dock and then connect it to your device.
  2. You may also connect an accessory directly to the Smart Terminal by using a Micro-USB cord.

Note: The Smart Terminal must remain in the dock to use accessories connected this way.

  1. Tap Settings on the second page of the Smart Terminal home screen.
  2. Tap Accessory.
  3. On the Accessory Manager menu, tap Add network accessory.
  4. Tap the type of accessory you want to add -- Cash Register, Cash Drawer, Scale, Printer + Cash Drawer, or Scanner. Want to add a standalone printer? Learn how to connect a printer and manage your printing preferences.
  5. Once you choose your accessory type, the available models will appear. Tap your model and then tap Connect.
  6. Enter the IP address and tap Confirm.

    Note: Each network peripheral has a unique way to identify the device’s IP address. If you don’t know the IP address, review the accessory’s manual for instructions.

  7. Test the device from the Manage accessories list to confirm the connection.
  8. If the accessory is added but not working, remove it from the Smart Terminal, reboot the Smart Terminal and the accessory, and then try adding it again.
