Please make sure you are connecting through the app and not your bluetooth connections.  You may also want to connect for the first time at home or in an area free of other bluetooth waves.  

After you have paired using the directions found below, in future transactions, you will just turn your reader on with a QUICK TAP to the power button BEFORE you begin the checkout process with your client to ensure the reader has time to connect.  

**PLEASE NOTE**  Holding down the Power button will put your chip reader back into pairing mode and require you to complete these steps to reconnect.  Your chip reader will go to 'sleep' on its own after a period of non-use.  It is not necessary to power off.  

**DO NOT TRY TO CONNECT OR RECONNECT OUTSIDE OF THE APP IN YOUR BLUETOOTH SETTINGS**  This will cause you to need to reset and start the pairing process over.  

**ALWAYS CHECK THAT YOUR BLUETOOTH IS ENABLED ON YOUR DEVICE** If you have connection issues you can Tap on Reset Reader in the middle of the screen.
