Connect the Terminal

The credit card terminal needs an ethernet or phone line connection to be able to communicate with the processor and run transactions.

*Ethernet cable must be purchased separately.

  1. Remove the back cover to access all ports.
  2. Plug an ethernet cable into the yellow port OR the phone cable into the blue port.

    *Ethernet is recommended for faster transaction speed.

  3. Connect the two parts of the power cable.
  4. Plug the power cable into the adapter port and replace the back cover.
  5. Plug the other end of the ethernet cable into a router OR the phone line into a wall jack.

    The telephone cable must be connected to an analog jack for a line not shared with other devices.

  6. Lift the hatch to open the paper tray.
  7. Load the receipt paper with the end of the roll feeding from the bottom.
  8. Close the lid on the paper.
  9. Plug the power cable into a wall outlet to power on the terminal.
  10. The terminal is ready to process cards when it reaches the 'Swipe or Insert Card' screen.

Optional Privacy Guard

Attach the optional privacy guard to shield customers as they enter PIN information.

  1. Align the notches on the guard with the bottom of the terminal.
  2. Press down on the top of the guard to snap it into place.

FD35 PIN Pad Installation

Begin a sale on the FD130 and finish it by processing payment through this optional customer-facing device. Customers can swipe/tap/insert their card and enter a PIN without reaching for the main terminal.

IMPORTANT: The FD130 terminal must be unplugged from power before connecting or disconnecting the PIN pad. Failure to do so will result in damage to the PIN pad.

  1. Remove the terminal's back cover and unplug the power cable.
  2. Connect the PIN pad cable to a black USB port on the terminal.
  3. Reconnect the terminal's power cable and replace the back cover.

    The PIN pad powers on and displays a status message when ready to use.
