7. On the Payment Terminal Devices page, click the "Add a Payment Device" button to add a new payment device or click "Edit" on the device you'd like to adjust.


8. Fill out the form for a new payment device or make adjustments to an existing payment device.


  • Give the terminal a descriptive name. This is the name that will be used for selecting the device in the point of sale.
  • Choose the PAX as the device model.

  • IP Address


To retrieve the PAX Device IP address:

  7. Copy the IP address listed on screen into the "IP Address" field on the device settings form in RepairQ. When entering the IP address into RepairQ, remove any "left zero padding" from the IP groups. For example, if the IP address listed is "" you should enter "" into RepairQ.


  • Put 10009 in for the port, unless specified otherwise by RepairQ or Heartland support.
  • Choose whether or not you wish to require an electronic signature for payments.


To Retrieve Hosts Settings

On your PAX device, navigate to Menu > 4. Hosts Settings > 1. Hosts Parameters
