How to Connect Your Terminal

Your Ingenico terminal will arrive with the Magic Box cable management cord already connected. The magic box is the power cord and has two ports to plug in your phone or internet cable.

  • Connect your phone, power and/or Internet cables to the Magic Box.
  • Secure the Magic Box in a nearby location, using a screw, zip tie or hook. This reduces stress on the connections, prevents unintentional disconnections and keeps clutter off your counter.
  • Connect the power adapter to a nearby outlet.

For assistance connecting a PIN pad to your Ingenico iCT250 terminal, please contact the Help Desk at 1.888.886.8869. Follow the call menu promptings for Technical Assistance.

View Online Tutorial

A settlement operation is used to close out the current batch of transactions and open a new batch. The closed batch is then submitted to begin the funding process. There are two settlement options.

  • Manual Settlement: if your terminal is set to manually settle
    • Press the green [ENTER] button
    • Use the Arrow Key to scroll down to Settlement and press the green [ENTER] button
    • Press the appropriate hotkey for YES and ACCEPT to settle/close the batch
    • At the end of every successful batch Settlement, a settlement report will automatically print
  • Auto Settlement: if your terminal is set to auto settle, transactions in the current batch will settle at a specific, predetermined time, within a 24-hour period.
    • When configured, auto settlement begins any time after the set time occurs.
    • At the end of every successful batch Settlement, a settlement report will automatically print
  • To change your settlement option to Auto, call the Help Desk at 1-888-886-8869.

Note: the terminal must be powered on for the Auto Settlement to occur.

How to Reload Printer Paper

  • Access the printer roll by lifting up the paper cover on the rear of the terminal.
  • Remove any empty paper roll and place the new roll of paper in the compartment with the paper feeding from the bottom of the roll and a small amount of paper pulled out
  • Close the paper cover
  • Press and hold the yellow Back [<] key to feed the paper.

How to Run a Report

Your Ingenico terminals offer multiple reports that help you view or print details and summaries for the transactions in your open batch. To begin:

  • Press the Pound [#] key
  • Select Reports to view the Reports Menu
  • Use the arrow key and press the green [ENTER] button to select the report you wish to view or print.

Running these terminal reports will not Settle your batch or in any way alter the transactions that have been processed. For more reporting power and instant access to your merchant statement, use Resource Online featuring the reporting Dashboard. The Dashboard offers an at-a-glance view of your daily sales and settlement figures from any PC.

How to Void a Transaction

View Online Tutorial
  • Press the green Enter key
  • Select Void in the Main Menu
  • Select which option to search for the transaction to be voided
  • Follow the prompts to select the transaction you wish to void
  • Select the appropriate hotkey for YES to void the transaction

Compared to processing a refund, a void allows you to cancel a transaction in your current (open) batch, which lets your customer hang on to their funds and can save you on transaction fees.

How to Troubleshoot the Printer

If receipts are not printing and a "No Paper" error displays on your terminal:
  • Open the paper compartment
  • Remove the paper roll and check for any jammed paper.
  • When finished, replace the paper roll and close the compartment.

If the paper advances from the printer but is blank:

  • Make sure you are using thermal-sensitive (not plain) paper.
  • Make sure the paper feeds from the bottom of the roll.
