Pro Tips

  • Location management is a great way to segment order data to each location for improved performance metrics and inventory management. It's critical to business running multiple locations and a great strategy tool for the traveling small business owner.
  • Reader accessibility management is great for reducing clutter for shops managing multiple readers and is a much better security measure.
  • Requiring Customer Accounts: As with most eCommerce frameworks, WooCommerce allows you to enable or disable guest checkout but as a logged-in Admin, this doesn't help you much. With services that require customer account information, such as digital downloads and subscriptions, customer account info is necessary but for other products (ie. simple products), an email is not required. What if you insist upon always having a customer account? Simply check the option "Always Require Customer Account on Checkout".
  • Log into the WordPress CMS as a user who has (a) store manager privileges (ie. an admin) and (b) is assigned access in store.arcanestrategies.com as well and, (c) is assigned to a location in your plugin settings.
  • While logged in, navigate your customer through the checkout experience. You'll be given the option to select the terminal reader icon to process accordingly.
  • Selecting the terminal option and press the button for the reader you set up during installation.
  • If you are selling a product that requires a customer account such as a digital download or subscription, you will be required to enter an email address to find their account. If they haven't registered yet, you can choose to either:
    • Ask your user to register through their selected device (ie. smartphone).
    • Visit the "Users" section and create a user on their behalf. Be sure to select the "customer" role when you do so. This is a WooCommerce feature.
  • Credit card prompts will expire after 30 seconds but may be manually canceled by hitting the "Esc" key on your keyboard.
  1. After purchase, you'll receive an email with a link to download the package. Unzip the package to your plugins directory and enable it. If you have our FREE plugin installed, please deactivate it and be sure you have our latest FREE version installed, to avoid legacy issues.
  2. Make sure your P400 device is turned on and connected to the internet. To connect it, type 0-7-1-3-9. We will use the message on the screen in step 6.
  3. Log into your WordPress admin panel using the email you've purchased the license with. Now go to the plugins page, find the plugin, click "activate", then click "settings".
  4. Enter the registration code that you will have received in your email in step 1.
  5. Now create your first location. Locations help avoid confusion in a multi-reader store, the details aren't important, they just help you organize.
  6. To set up a reader, click the "Add Reader" button within the location you just set up and type in the string displaying on your device. This is usually 3 words separated by hyphens.
  7. Your user must be assigned to a location, now.  All terminal users must be assigned to locations.  To assign user accounts access to specific locations' readers, there are 3 steps:
