posBoss and Tyro

Let's get posBoss and Tyro talking!

Getting Set Up

Arrange your terminal and credentials with Tyro

You will need your Tyro terminal and your Tyro credentials - Merchant ID (MID) and Terminal ID (TID).

Set up posBoss to integrate with Tyro eftpos

Select Tyro as your provider in Setup > iPad Setup on your Management site.

Here you will see the Eftpos Integration selector. Click inside the button where it says None then select your provider.

Click Save then make sure you press sync menu in the posBoss app on your iPad as detailed below...


  1. In the posBoss till app go to: Settings > Press Sync Menu.

  2. After syncing is finished, fully close and restart the posBoss till app (press the iPad’s home button twice, and swipe up on posBoss to close).

  3. Open the posBoss till app again then: Settings > Eftpos > Connect (The Tyro Logo should appear here)

  4. Follow the steps in the Tyro setup widows that appear (Select your terminal, enter in your MID and TID details and press Authorise.)

  5. If you get an error here, try to authorise again on both posBoss and the Tyro terminal - when all is working you should receive a Pairing Successful message.

  6. You're done! When you next Pay by card in posBoss, the Tyro screen will appear and guide you through the payment process.
