Enabling Bluetooth Easy Pairing

If you are adding a MagTek eDynamo or MagTek BulleT Bluetooth card reader, you should use the Bluetooth easy pairing method, instead of manually pairing the card reader.

The pairing procedure requires a PIN code. If you use the manual pairing method, you must enter the PIN in the pairing dialog. However, the easy pairing method automatically enters the PIN in the pairing dialog box for you, so that you do not have to remember it.

Note

Easy pairing is not supported for Ingenico iCMP Bluetooth card readers. This is because the MagTek card readers have the same common PIN code (which can be used on any device), while the Ingenico iCMP card readers have a generated PIN code for each device.

To use the Bluetooth easy pairing method, you must enable it for the Toast POS device on which the card reader will be added.
