Before we start here's some things to note

Will I need to make changes to my router or network?

Please Note: The PayClip currently needs a Wi-Fi signal from a router & doesn't work using bluetooth like the old version. Please reach out to BNZ if you need to discuss your hardware/network requirements.

We highly recommend having a dedicated network and a router with a strong signal, solely for posBoss and the BNZ PayClip device. Other devices (from phones to streaming cameras) joining your network can cause communication issues.

Can any BNZ payClip work with posBoss?

Your BNZ payClip will need to be on version 3.20.2 to work with posBoss. When you talk to the team at BNZ, be sure to mention that you are looking to integrate with posBoss and need this particular version.


Getting Set Up

1. Set up the BNZ PayClip terminal to talk to posBoss

First of all, you will need to have your BNZ PayClip set up and ready to take payments. Here are the instructions from BNZ.

Once you’re sorted with the above, then there’s just a few steps to get your transactions to come through automatically

2. Set up a static IP address for your PayClip and note your IP address

Follow this process to ensure the best stability for your BNZ PayClip & posBoss.

  4. Locate the IP address from your PayClip and enter that IP address into the field at the top called Terminal IP Address, replacing any default digits.
