Tech Tip #1 Keep your EFTPOS clean
Paper dust in the printer compartment can gather over long-term use, making its way into the gears, thermal printer and sensor, which can cause printer errors that could be avoided.
Long-term use and accidental spills of liquid on the pinpad can cause grime to build up, clog and block the function of the buttons.
Grab a cloth and some general household cleaner. Spray cleaner on to the cloth (do not spray directly onto the equipment) and wipe down the printer compartment and roller to remove all paper dust.
With the same cloth wipe down the keypad. Finish with a clean cloth to ensure all components are dry before continuing use.
Having clean EFTPOS equipment will help you avoid:
- Receipt printer issues
- Pinpad button issues
- Possible repair bills
- Possible disruptions to your payment system
