Overview

This article describes how to configure Heartland Retail to use the PAX PX7 device to process payments. The PAX PX7 is supported only by Heartland Payment processing.

To function properly, the PAX PX7 must be loaded with a Special PAXStore template for Heartland Retail.

We recommend you make any adjustments to the device at the PAXStore level to ensure that, if the device’s firmware is ever updated or changed, those updates will include the site-specific settings. If you do not set them at the PAXStore level, your settings will be overwritten by any downloads.

Prerequisites

  • You must add an PX7 SKU to an opportunity in Salesforce.

  • The merchant account must have a Heartland Processing MID in Salesforce to complete the order.

  • The merchant must be processing with Heartland Payments Systems.

PAX devices are set up in BroadPOS or PAXStore with a pre-configured template for Heartland Retail. We recommend you make any adjustments to the device at the BroadPOS/PAXStore level to ensure that, if the device’s firmware is ever updated or changed, those updates will include the site-specific settings. If you do not set them at this level, your settings will be overwritten by any downloads.

If you have any questions or concerns regarding the PAX device, please email them to paxsupport@e-hps.com, or call 1.888.909.8498.
