Before you can use Λctiv8 POS, you’ll need to configure some settings on the iPad. To open Settings, go to Settings > Activ8 POS.
In Allow Activ8 POS to Access, turn on Location to permit the POS to recognize the nearest inventory location. To enable the credit-card reader, turn on Bluetooth.
In Activ8 POS Settings, make the following changes:
About: Choose a name for this POS Station. Each iPad should be identified with its own name.
Under Hardware, indicate your hardware:

Worldpay Settings: If you use a card reader supplied by Vantiv/Worldpay, select it from the list and supply its IP Address.
Data Center: Choose the Λctiv8 data center location closest to you.
