Let's create and activate your iPads!

With an active Bustle subscription, it's easy to get your iPads up and running...

A couple of things to note:

  • SUPER IMPORTANT: You must cash up ALL of your iPads daily - whether they have been used or not. See note below.

  • To add more than one iPad to your Bustle setup you need to be on our Medium or Large plan.

Step 1 - Let's add an iPad!

  1. On your Bustle hub under - Setup > iPad Setup you will see one iPad set up by default. Press the edit button to rename if needed.

  2. Need to set up more than one iPad? Press New iPad

  3. Name the new iPad till so you know what it is when you log in - and assign it a code.

  4. Please ensure that it has a unique starting number for orders (e.g Till 1 - #0001, Till 2 - #1001, Till 3 - #2001 and so on).

  5. Press Submit and you're done!

Step 2 - Selecting your Eftpos (optional)

If you have a payment terminal that is compatible with Bustle you can set it up to be integrated (meaning that card transactions from Bustle get sent directly to the terminal)

Here are the compatible eftpos companies and terminals (NZ), (AUS) and (UK).

Select your payment provider from the dropdown, and the setup document will appear to help take you through the process step by step.

Step 3 - Head to your iPads and let's get them set up!

  1. Download the Bustle iPad App from the App Store on your iPad.

    The App Store
  2. Log in to the Bustle iPad app using your email and login (must be a Boss login)

  3. Select from the list of iPads you have created and your Bustle till will be signed in and ready to configure.

  4. It's time to configure your printers and eftpos. Check out this article for some guidance.

Important things to note:

  • Any order or tab created will sync to the other iPad/s within 15 seconds. Issues syncing? Try performing a $0 cash up straight away, then delete and reinstall the Bustle iPad app.

  • All Bustle devices are capable of making payments from orders and tabs.

  • For this reason, ensure you cash up all iPads every day. Even if you are only using the iPad as an ordering device.

  • Any transaction settled on an iPad, will show up in that iPad's cash up.

  • Any iPad not regularly cashed up can cause syncing of tabs to slow and printing & Saving of orders to delay. This gets worse over time as more data is added and not cleaned up by the cash up process.

Now, get back to annoying the chefs, because you’re all done here!
