Now that you’ve purchased your Verifone P400 reader from stripe.com, it’s time to setup and start using your device with WooCommerce. In this guide, we’ll walk you through connecting your reader to Wi-Fi, registering your reader, and completing a transaction.
You should have already installed the WooCommerce and WooCommerce Stripe Gateway plugins on your WordPress site, as well as the Terminal for Stripe and WooCommerce plugin. If you haven’t installed and activated the Terminal plugin, please select the appropriate button below to see the installation and configuration guide for the applicable version. Our free article explains how to install and setup the FREE Terminal for Stripe and WooCommerce, while our pro article covers how to install and setup the PRO Terminal for Stripe and WooCommerce. You won’t be able to setup or operate your reader until you have completed all necessary steps from the plugin setup guide.
*Note: Your reader may not support Wi-Fi right out of the box. If this is the case, connect an ethernet cable from the dongle to your router, and then power up your device. This will automatically install the necessary firmware.
Now that your device is registered, you are ready to start performing credit card transactions using the Verifone P400 reader.
If the card is declined, the transaction is cancelled by the cashier by pressing ‘esc’, or there is no activity for 30 seconds, the reader will deactivate, the order will cancel, and the terminal will exit waiting mode. Once the payment has gone through, the transaction will be complete.
The Verifone P400 setup procedure is now complete. You are now ready to start using your reader to perform in-person credit card transactions for your business, directly from your WordPress site.
