The Chip Card Reader on the External PINpad

The chip card reader is located in a slot on the front of the PINpad. When a chip card is inserted, the chip card reader reads the information on the card's chip, e.g. whether to prompt for PIN or print a signature line on the receipt.

To correctly insert the chip card in to the chip card reader:


Ensure that:

the card is facing up

Then slide the card into the chip card reader slot until the card stops sliding in.

IMPORTANT: Leave the chip card in the reader for the entire transaction.

When the REMOVE CARD prompt appears, pull the card gently out of the chip card reader.
