Verifone V240m

This is a payment terminal with a screen and integrated receipt printer, merchants use it to take card-present payments.

Power and Charging

The V240m is supplied with the following:

  • Internal rechargeable battery

  • Power Supply Unit (PSU)

  • (Optional) Full-Feature base (FF-base) station for charging and to support an Ethernet-Bluetooth connection (Ethernet to base, Bluetooth from base to payment terminal)

You can plug the PSU directly into the payment terminal itself. A more practical option is to plug the PSU into the FF-base station, and place the payment terminal in the base station for charging. If you want to use the payment terminal in Ethernet-Bluetooth mode, you must connect the PSU to the FF-base station. This is because the base station connects the payment terminal to the network.

When the payment terminal is not connected to power, press the green Accept key (O) to switch it on and off. To switch off, hold down the green Accept key (O) for approximately 10 seconds.

The payment terminal automatically switches itself on when it is connected to power, or docked into a powered base station. When connected to power you cannot switch it off. To restart it, hold down the green Accept key (O) for approx. 10s.

The V240m cannot operate reliably if the battery charge level is low. Once the charge level reaches a low level the IPS application warns that battery levels are low. When you see this warning, you must charge the device. When the battery level falls below 10%, the V240m stops responding to transaction requests and no user input is accepted until it is charged.

Connection Type Selection

  1. When you power up the V240m a prompt to enter a password appears.

  2. Enter the password 2345

  3. The Comm Mode menu appears. The options are

    • Wifi

Note: WiFi Roaming There is a limitation on V240m terminals installed with the firmware VIPA 6.6.1.12 HF6 and below. To enable Wi-Fi roaming do not select the WiFi network from the network scan list (Step 5 above). Instead, scroll down the network scan list to the (Manual) entry and follow the prompts to manually enter your SSID and other parameters. This limitation has gone with the VIPA 6.6.1.16 HF5 firmware. Contact Worldpay Support to find out how to upgrade your terminals to this firmware version.

Bluetooth mode

This section describes the steps needed to pair the V240m with the Full Feature base (FF-base).

  1. Use a Cat 5 Ethernet cable to connect the V240m FF-Base to your local area network (LAN). Ensure the cable is connected to the correct RJ45 socket on the Base. The correct one is the middle of the 3 RJ-45 sockets on the rear of the base.

  2. Note the Serial number of the FF-Base from its underside, for example S/N 318-427-068. You need this for the next few steps.

  3. Pair the V240m with the FF-Base.

  4. Power up the FF-Base and wait for its start up process to finish. When the FF-Base starts the upper white light on the left hand side of the FF-Base will continuously blink. Then all three lights on the base will light up briefly. Then the upper white light on the left hand side of the base will return to blinking continuously. After a few minutes the upper white light is on continuously - the FF-Base is now ready.

  5. Place the V240m PED on or near the FF-Base and ensure the battery level of the V240m is at least 20%.
