How do I set my Elavon Payments terminals to Semi-Integrated mode and configure communication types?

Objective

For Vend to be able to communicate with your Ingenico Desk 5000/ iCT 220/250 using Elavon Payments services, your terminal needs to be set to 'Semi-Integrated' mode and the terminal ports should have the right configuration.

Steps

Enabling Semi-Integrated Mode on the Desk 5000 payment terminal:

  1. Select the # key on the terminal pad 
  2. Enter in the Admin name
  3. Enter in the Admin password 
  4. On the Admin menu, select 8-Misc. Options
  5. Select 1-Semi-Integrated
  6. Select 1-Enable Semi-Integ
  7. Select 2-On

Configuring the communication type:

  1. Select the # key on the terminal pad 
  2. Enter in the Admin name
  3. Enter in the Admin password 
  4. On the Admin menu, select 8-Misc. Options
  5. Select 1-Semi-Integrated
  6. Select 2-Communication Type
  7. Select 4-Ethernet
  8. Enter in 8150 for the port number (hit the yellow key to erase any existing input)
  9. Select the green key

Enable Semi-Integrated Mode on the iCT220/250 payment terminals:

  1. On the idle menu, select the [.,#*] key to access the administrator menu
  2. Type in the admin name and password and hit the [Enter] key (this is provided by Elavon)
  3. Select [F2] or press [9] to access Misc. Option and hit the [Enter] key
  4. Select [1] for Semi-Integrated to access the semi-integrated menu
  5. Select [1] for Enable Semi-Integrated
  6. Press [F1] to select On to enable

Configuring the communication type:

After enabling the Semi-Integrated application, the setup of the Communication Type is required. The Communication Type determines the communication method used between the terminal and Vend.

  1. Your terminal should still be on the semi-integrated menu. If not, follow steps 1-6 above.
  2. Select [2] to access the Communication Type option
  3. Select [3] for Ethernet
  4. Enter the terminal port number 1101 to the terminal and select the green key

Additional Information

If semi-integrated is disabled, you will not be able to process payments directly from Vend and only the standalone payment will run.
