Integrated Payments Setup: PAX Security Certificate Installation and Testing

Integrated Payment Processing - Start Here!

Integrated Payment systems give users a secure solution for accepting payments on a payment terminal and seamlessly posting those transactions to a RepairQ ticket. Downloading and installing the PAX Security Certificate is required on each computer/device that will use a Bluefin or Heartland PAX device to process payments. Once you have your certificate installed correctly, you are ready to add your Payment Terminal Device to RepairQ.
