Supported WiFi Connectivity

Reader supports 2.4 and 5GHz frequency band. Supported security algorithms are WPA 1/2 in PSK mode with CCMP (AES) or TKIP encryption protocols.

We have seen that 5GHz frequency band tends to work much better when using the WiFi connectivity. This is recommended when available, but may vary depending on merchant specific network environment.

Customize your Reader Idle Screen

You may choose to add a custom logo or image to the card reader idle screen, which can be great to add your branding to another customer touch point. The images can be configured at either the reader level, location ID level, or at the gateway account level. In order to facilitate this, you will need to follow the below steps.

Tips for creating your image files

Process to Upload Custom Images

  1. Create a custom image file adhering to the P400 Custom Image File Specs

  2. Identify the readers or locations that you would like this to be enabled for (we'll need serial numbers if you'd like this enabled for specific readers or location IDs for specific locations otherwise we can enable it at the gateway account level)

  3. Send the image file along with a list of the reader serial numbers to your PayPal Solutions Engineer or Integration Engineer to kick off the enablement

  4. The readers will refresh their configuration within a 12-hour interval or upon the next reboot
