  • Navigate to the Card Reader Tab.
  • Select the Verifone VX805 or Verifone VX805 EMV for the secure card reader. Use the EMV option if your system has been enabled to accept chip(EMV) cards.
  • Select Test.
  • Within a few seconds, a message will appear confirming communication with the reader.

EMV Enabled Systems

  • When EMV is enabled there is an additional step required to load the 'EMV parameter keys' for the reader. This only needs to be done once before processing EMV cards or when the reader is switched to a different processing account.
  • Select the Setup EMV Reader button.
  • After a few seconds, the reader will indicate that it is loading and will restart.
  • RTS will indicate that the reader is working.
  • This can take a couple minutes to complete.
