Card Payments

Worldpay POS accepts the following payment types::

Once you have populated the basket select the "Card or Contactless" option from the bottom of the basket section to initiate a card payment. Instructions will be displayed at each stage of the payments cycle to guide you through the transaction. All instructions will also appear on the keypad for the customer’s reference.

When taking a card payment, if the keypad has entered hibernation mode, press the tick icon on the keypad before processing payment. In this way the keypad is alerted to an impending payment and as such will be able to process payment faster. Please note, your Keypad will only enter hibernation mode when it is not charging.

N.B. When the Worldpay POS app is in Offline mode the option to take Card or Contactless payment will be disabled, you can however continue to take Cash payments
