Updating Card Readers

You can update an EMV-enabled card reader to ensure that its EMV settings are compliant with EMV security requirements and that it is running on the latest version. Running an update can help prevent your EMV transactions from being denied by card providers.

If the Toast POS system determines that the card reader needs updating, you may be prompted to update the card reader when you log into your Toast POS device.

To remove a card reader from the Toast POS system

  1. Access the Toast POS Device Setup.

  2. On the Device Setup screen, scroll down to the Card Readers section.
