Configuration Overview

IPS V3.1.2.0
Released August 2021

The basic configuration process involves the IPS app, the payment terminal (device) and the Point of Sale Administration application. You must configure them all to work together.

Service overview

  • We recommend that you integrate the IPS service with the back office admin application. Alternatively, you can use your back office admin application

  • Access IPS on port 7080 by default. If you want to change this default 7080 port, you can use a start server script

  • Never copy a configured IPS from one platform to another.

  • IPS must be online during the configuration process.
