With the card stripe facing up, swipe the card through top slot of the iCMP credit card reader. Wait for payment to be approved and continue closing the transaction as normal.
If a customer has a chip card, run an EMV transaction by dipping the card. Ring up a transaction as normal and select 'Credit'. Wait for the iPad and iCMP to prompt for insertion of the card. Insert the card at the bottom of the iCMP (chip end first). Follow the instructions on the Ingenico iCMP payment terminal. Most common is F3 for Yes to accept amount, then remove card.
Visa debit cards might give two choices Visa Debit and US Debit. US Debit will require a PIN, US Debit will not. Use the F2 and F3 keys to move the selection, green button to select.
Once the screen indicates the transaction has been authorized and the card can be removed, complete the sale by removing the card. Give the DATIO POS App a second to react after the card is removed.
