Worldpay triPOS Setup

Latest update: - Admin

Setting up your triPOS Terminal

Before setting up Worldpay triPOS with Vend, you will need to power on your terminal and connect it to the internet. By now you should have received your Worldpay terminal. It will look like one of the following terminals below:

To connect your Worldpay terminal to the internet, follow the steps below:

1. Plug your terminal into a power source and check whether your terminal requires an ethernet cable connection or is WIFI enabled.

  • If you are using an ethernet cable, plug the ethernet cable from the terminal into a nearby router or switch.

  • The Ingenico iSMP4 is a WiFi enabled Worldpay terminal, follow the steps at this link to connect your terminal to your WiFi network.

2. Next, wait for the activation code to display on screen. Once the activation code appears on the screen, you will be ready to proceed. Make a note of this activation code as you will need it for later.


  • If the activation code does not display, then the terminal is not connected to the internet. Check to make sure that your ethernet cable is fully connected.

  • For security reasons, this activation code will refresh after 15 minutes, so be sure to recheck your terminal screen for the latest code when you come to pair this terminal with Vend.
