4. Wait as your device will begin downloading a few items for a couple of minutes to complete device configuration and eventually go to the TriPOS screen, at this point your device is ready to accept payments.

Sending transactions to the Ingenico iSMP4

Once you have the Ingenico iSMP4 setup, when you select charge order on the on the POS you should see Process with Commerce7 Payments as a tender option.
