Poynt Smart Terminal Help

Connect my Poynt Smart Terminal to a Wi-Fi connection

Once you’ve successfully activated your Poynt Smart Terminal, connect it to a secure Wi-Fi connection to start processing transactions. When you turn on your device for the first time, you’ll automatically be prompted to connect to Wi-Fi. If you need to adjust or switch your Wi-Fi connection, you can do so from your Poynt Smart Terminal home screen.

Note: The Wi-Fi connection you select must be password protected in order to process payments safely. Secure connections include WPA, WPA2, or WPA2 PSK networks. We recommend against connecting the Poynt Smart Terminal to a cellular hotspot using your smartphone. In addition to causing latency issues, doing so may not be completely secure.

  1. Swipe down twice on your Poynt Smart Terminal home screen and tap tap wifi arrow Wi-Fi.
  2. A list of available networks will appear. Tap the Wi-Fi you’d like to connect to.
  3. Enter the Wi-Fi password and tap Connect.
