    Before anything else, connect the FD130 or FD150 via phone line or ethernet cable* and plug it into power. The credit card terminal needs a connection to be able to communicate with the processor and run transactions. *Ethernet cable must be purchased separately.

    1. Remove the cover from the bottom of the terminal.
    2. Plug an ethernet cable (sold separately) into the yellow port, OR plug the included phone cable into the blue port.

      An ethernet connection is recommended for faster transaction speeds.

    3. Plug the other end of the ethernet cable into a numbered port on the router.

      If using the telephone line, plug the other end of that cable into an analog telephone wall jack that is not shared with other devices.

    4. (Optional) Connect a PIN pad to the terminal.
    5. Connect the two parts of the power cable.
    6. Plug the power cable into the power adapter port, then replace the back cover.
    7. Lift the hatch to open the printer cover.
    8. Drop the paper into the printer with the end feeding down from the bottom of the roll.

      The FD130 and FD150 use thermal receipt paper to print with heat instead of ink.

    9. With the end of the paper sticking out, close the lid on the paper.
    10. Plug the power cable into a power outlet to turn on the terminal.

      The terminal takes about 1 minute to boot up. It is ready to process cards when it displays the ‘Swipe or Insert Card’ screen.

    With setup complete, visit one of these resources to learn how to use the terminal or if you need support:

    Privacy Guard Installation

    Attach the optional privacy guard included with the FD130 and FD150 to shield customers if they are prompted to enter their PIN on the terminal.

    1. Align the notches on the guard with the bottom of the terminal.
    2. Press down on the top of the guard to snap it into place.

    PIN Pad Installation

    The optional FD35 and RP10 PIN pads (sold separately) are customer-facing devices that connect to the FD130 and FD150 terminals respectively and allow customers to quickly insert, swipe, or tap their card.

    IMPORTANT: The FD130 or FD150 terminal must be unplugged from power before connecting or disconnecting a PIN pad. Failure to do so will damage the PIN pad.

    The FD35 PIN pad is only compatible with the FD130 terminal, and the RP10 PIN pad is only compatible with the FD150 terminal.

    1. Remove the back cover of the FD130 or FD150 terminal, and unplug the power cable.
    2. Connect the PIN pad cable to a black USB port on the terminal.
    3. Reconnect the power cable to the FD130 or FD150, and replace the back cover.

      The PIN pad will turn on automatically and display Welcome Ready for Sale or Insert or Swipe Card when ready to use.
