If you don't know your urn:tid/device key(s), please contact poynt@cardconnectpartners.com.

Navigate to Settings > POS Profile in Commerce7.

Commerce7-Settings (7)-1

Then select on the POS Profile(s) you want your device added.

  • under Device Key field add your urn:tid /device key
  • then add a Title for your device.

You can have multiple urn:tid /device keys for a profile depending on your tasting room setup (i.e. multiple ipads with multiple Poynt devices).

If using multiple devices for one profile, we highly recommend choosing a name for each device that is easily identifiable. Example: Using a colour as a name and then physically putting a piece of coloured tape on the terminal to match the device name will help make identifying each device easier.

Select Add Device for each addition device, add the Device Key and Title for each device.

Once all the information is added make sure to select Save
