- WorldPay explicitly needs to enable the feature for the checkbox to work.
- Credentials entered on this screen should not be an account nickname.
- Error messages along the line of Card declined, and invalid credentials are typically caused by account aliases or nicknames.
Hardware Setup and Configuration
Unencrypted USB Swipers (Uncommon)
- Note: Dejavoo terminals and unencrypted USB swipers cannot be mixed and matched in Pulse. Once adding a Dejavoo terminal, Pulse's interface changes to only allow credit card entry via terminal (or manual entry by skipping electronic processing).
- Unencrypted USB swipers do not require additional hardware or configuration. They operate as human input devices (HID) and enter text characters into a field where a cursor is placed.
- Use the Credit Card Track field to enter card information.
- Connect the terminal to the clinic network and the Internet for relevant updates and the ability to add the terminal in Pulse.
- Dejavoo hardware has a limitation where WiFi network names containing non-alpha-numeric characters cannot be entered into the terminal. Terminals will only be able to connect to wireless networks named appropriately.
- Dejavoo devices are set up in Pulse by clicking the Add New Payment Terminal link, giving the terminal a name, and entering the terminal Serial Number as pictured below:
- Serial numbers can be found on the back of your Dejavoo Terminal as pictured below:
