Terminal Activation

PayFacto uses a self-service terminal activation procedure designed to save time while also providing better security. The new activation procedure applies only to countertop and mobile PAX payment terminals using the Android operating system. The new procedure applies to:

  • All new merchants activating their terminals for the first time

  • Any existing merchants adding new payment terminals

  • Any existing merchants receiving replacement terminals


After you configure the terminal's network connection(s) and power on the terminal, the procedure comprises of 2 parts:

  • Activate the terminal with a One Time Passcode (OTP)

  • Set the Administrator and Merchant passwords

NOTE: If you have multiple new payment terminals, you need to perform the activation procedure on each terminal individually.
