Authenticate Your Terminal

Merchant Services is committed to implementing functionality that provides the most stringent risk mitigation benefits to our merchants.

Terminal authentication will mitigate unauthorized access to a POS device by requiring an authentication code along with the merchant’s ZIP code to be entered at the POS terminal before the first transaction can be completed immediately following a full download. Any time a POS device receives a full download, the terminal must be authenticated. Only one POS device can be authenticated to one Terminal ID (TID) at a time.
