MagTek Pairing Procedure

During the pairing procedure, the names of the MagTek Bluetooth card readers display in the following format:

  • MagTek eDynamo Bluetooth card reader names use the format eDynamo-sn, where sn is the serial number of the card reader (such as eDynamo-B41CAC0).

  • MagTek BulleT Bluetooth card reader names use the format MAGTEK-sn, where sn is the serial number of the card reader (such as MAGTEK-B283666D).

To pair a MagTek Bluetooth card reader

Before using the following procedure, make sure you have enabled Bluetooth easy pairing.

  1. Ensure that both the Android tablet (on which the Toast POS app is installed) and the MagTek card reader are powered on. Both devices should be in close proximity to each other.

  2. On the Android tablet, go to Settings > Connections > Bluetooth. Turn on the Bluetooth option if it is off.

    The Bluetooth devices detected by the Android tablet are listed in the Available Devices section, as in this example. Note that the image also shows the Scan button mentioned in Step 3 (depending on your tablet, the button may be labeled Search for Devices).

    The Settings > Connections > Bluetooth configuration section on the Android device.
  3. Verify that the card reader is in pairing mode:

    • On the MagTek eDynamo, press and hold the button until the blue status light blinks three times. The blue status light blinks every three seconds to indicate that the card reader is in pairing mode.

    • On the MagTek BulleT, check that the LED indicator shows a rapidly-flashing green light. This indicates that the card reader is searching for a Bluetooth connection

    When the Android tablet detects the card reader, the MagTek card reader name should display in the Available Devices section, as in this example for the MagTek eDynamo Bluetooth card reader:

    The Bluetooth card reader selected from the Available Devices section on the Android tablet.

    If you do not see the card reader listed, tap the Scan button so that the tablet can re-scan for available Bluetooth devices.

  4. On the Android tablet, under Available Devices, tap the name of the MagTek card reader.

    The pairing dialog box briefly displays, and the MagTek card reader is added to the Paired Devices section:

    The Bluetooth card reader in the Paired Devices section on the Android tablet.

The card reader is now paired. The next step is to configure the card reader on the Toast POS device.
