Adding Bluetooth Card Readers

You can add the following Bluetooth card readers to your Toast POS device:

  • MagTek eDynamo

  • MagTek BulleT

  • Ingenico iCMP

Adding a Bluetooth card reader requires that you perform two procedures:

  1. Pair the card reader to the Android device. (Pairing occurs when two Bluetooth devices communicate with each other and establish a connection.) Note that the MagTek pairing procedure differs from the Ingenico pairing procedure because MagTek card readers can use the Bluetooth easy pairing method while Ingenico card readers cannot.

  2. Configure the Toast POS device to communicate with the card reader, by using the Device Setup > Add New Card Reader selection. This procedure is the same for all MagTek and Ingenico Bluetooth card readers.

The following sections provide information about how to add Bluetooth card readers to Toast POS devices.
