Generate a Point of Sale Activation (POS) Code

You need this code to generate a POS License Key.

The POS License Key is required for API requests to be accepted. The POS License Key is required for connections to the Worldpay Total API (for both mobile and direct integrations). No requests are accepted without this POS License Key.

To generate a POS Activation Code:

  1. From the Home Page, click the Point of Sale menu.
  2. Click POS Activation. A list of all the Emboss MIDs that you will be generating activation codes for appears.
  3. Enter the POS Reference. This must be an alphanumeric string between 9 and 15 characters long.
  4. Click Submit to request the POS ID and POS activation code.

The screen displays the Emboss MIDs, POS ID, POS Reference, and the POS Activation Code. It should look like the screen below:

These various codes and IDs are:

  • Emboss MID - The identifier for the merchant record, generated in our system

  • POS Reference – A reference to this POS instance, entered by the merchant or integrator. Enter a reference to register and identify different point of sale devices. For example, MobilePOS1, MobilePOS2 and so on

  • POS ID - This identifier is for Worldpay to reference and track POS registrations (for internal consolidation and reconciliation)

  • POS Activation Code - A one-time passcode for registration purposes only

Make a note of these various code values, then go back toInstallation Stepstopic.
