tDynamo Payment Terminal Setup

The tDynamo device is a payment terminal compatible with Commerce7. This is a wireless device that offers a quick and seamless customer experience. Follow these instructions to get your tDynamo device up and running.

Getting Started

Follow the instructions below to set up the device based on if you're using iOS or Windows. Once the device is configured, add it to your Commerce7 POS Profile settings.

PLEASE READ: The button on the side of the tDynamo device is used for pairing, but is also the power button. The device will turn-off for power saving - so before use we recommend pressing the button quickly, once, to power it back on. 

If you are having issues with the terminal not connecting often we recommend pressing this power button once so you get the single green light on the front of the tDynamo unit at the same time as when you press "Pay" on the POS screen. 

Stuck? Having trouble with installation? Sometimes simply deleting the MagneFlex app and re-installing it is the best course of action. 

However, if you need help with set up and would like to set up a Zoom call to walk you through it - send us an email at support@commerce7.com.

Setting Up tDynamo for Commerce7 (iOS / Bluetooth)

You can pair a single tDynamo to multiple iPads/Android tablets following the steps below. If you have multiple tDynamo's do not pair multiple tDynamos to one tablet as it is not possible to select which one to use.

Note that if you are using an iPad, your iPad must be able to run the latest IOS version. (It may run on older iOS versions but compatibility is not guaranteed).
  1. What's in the box?
    1. tDynamo device
    2. USB-C (to TDynamo) to USB-A (to computer/charging) cord
    3. Charging/Docking stand with USB-A connector (to computer/charging)
  2. On your iOS device, download the MagneFlex Browser for iOS (click here) or you can search for "MagneFlex" in the App Store. Note that if you are using an iPad, your iPad must be able to run the latest IOS version. (It may run on older iOS versions but compatibility is not guaranteed).
  3. To connect it to the reader, first open MagTek App, click Admin and click Test Reader

  4. Select tDynamo from the readers to test

  5. Ensure Bluetooth is enabled on your IOS device (under Settings > Bluetooth). 
  6. Put your tDynamo device into pairing mode by holding down the right hand side button down for 3 seconds and you will see the bottom light change from green to flashing blue

  8. A pairing request will open. Enter six zeros 000000 and click Pair. (If you do not see this prompt, it's likely that Bluetooth is not enabled in your device settings.)
    Note: you must complete this pairing before the blue light stops flashing on the tDynamo.

  9. This will connect to the tDynamo and with-in 10-30 seconds you will be prompted to swipe a card to confirm the tDynamo is paired successfully. (This will not charge your card)

  10. After swiping the card you will see the swipe data and your reader is now paired successfully.

  2. Be sure that the tDynamo is 'awake' by clicking the power button quickly, one time.
  3. On your POS device, click 'EMV'.
  4. Choose tDynamo and click the 'Send to EMV Device button'. You'll see a progress screen as it connects.
  5. This will bring up a Tip modal on your POS device. Hand the device to your Customer so that they can choose an applicable tip. 
  6. Finally, ask the Customer to swipe, tap or insert the card into the tDynamo to complete the transaction.


Why can't I send a transaction to the tDynamo device?

A few things to try:

  1. Be sure the device is turned on.
  2. Confirm that you see a single green light on the front of the device before hitting the "EMV" button. See section above to learn how to 'wake up' the device.
  3. If you have tried all other troubleshooting steps and are still experiencing issues, one last option you can try is to uninstall the MagneFlex app from your mobile device and then reinstall it. After reinstalling the app, you will need to repeat the setup steps mentioned above from the beginning. This can sometimes help resolve any persistent issues you may be encountering.
