Before you start

Before you follow these instructions to connect your Tyro EFTPOS machine to Tyro Health Online, please make sure you have:

To activate the EFTPOS machine you will need to contact Tyro's 24/7 Australian-based Customer Support team to activate it in our system. To ensure it's being set up for the correct business, Customer Support will need to confirm some business details before they can proceed with the activation.

If you have Tyro EFTPOS machine that needs to be activated, please call our 24/7 Australian-based Customer Support team on 1300 00 TYRO (8976) for assistance.

  1. Select the ‘Location’ tab from the sidebar,

  2. Navigate to the ‘Terminal’ option for that location,

Placing your terminal into 'pairing mode'
