How do I choose a different PhorestPay Card Terminal to use for payment?

This article explains how to choose a specific terminal on the Purchase screen when using PhorestPay.

On Phorest Desktop

If you have multiple PhorestPay Card Terminals, you will see the dropdown menu highlighted below after you click the Credit or Debit payment types. Use the dropdown menu to choose the terminal you would like to use to process the sale.


On Phorest Go

If you have multiple PhorestPay Card Terminals, you can tap Card Terminal to process the payment on a different terminal.


How do I know if the Terminal I selected is free for use?

If the terminal selected is busy or down, you will receive the below error. If this appears, all you need to do is select 'Ok' and then attempt the sale with a different Terminal.


Can I Change the Default Card Terminal? 

To change the default Terminal, go to Manager > Settings > Point of Sale > Device, then select your preferred default card terminal in the Credit Card Configuration dropdown, and click Save.


This will change the default Card Terminal associated with the computer/licence key that you are using to update the setting. If you have multiple computers, you can have different default Terminals for each one by changing this setting on each computer.
