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: We recommend connecting to a Wi-Fi network that’s password protected (like WPA, WPA2 or WPA2 PSK) in order to process payments safely. It’s possible to connect your device to a cellular hotspot with your Android or iOS smartphone if you need to. However, this type of connection can cause latency issues and may not be completely secure.
- Tap Settings on the second page of the Smart Terminal home screen.
- Tap Network Settings > Wi-Fi (under Preferences).
- A list of available networks will appear. Tap the Wi-Fi network you’d like to connect to.
- Enter the Wi-Fi password and tap Connect.
