Connect your payment device

Enable POS connection to Albert

  1. On your Abacus POS, go to Settings > Payment > Custom Payments > Albert.

2. Tap the Enable: Albert button.

3. A QR code will appear. This means your POS is ready for a CommBank Albert EFTPOS tablet to connect with it. Continue to the next section.

Connect Albert to POS

  1. Open Abacus Pay
  2. Press Scan QR Code.

3. Your CommBank Albert's camera will be activated.

4. Use the camera (located at the bottom of the device) to scan the QR Code on the Abacus POS screen.

5. In the bottom right corner of the screen, the connection status will appear as CONNECTED.

6. Press the Order icon in the bottom centre.

7. The Order screen will launch.

8. Now, when you take an order on Abacus POS, it will appear on your Albert EFTPOS tablet.

Please note that after every transaction, you will need to manually accept the prompt on Albert to finalise the payment. A workaround for this is if you make the receipt auto-print, by setting C18 Merchant Copy Printing Behaviour to NEVER PRINT and by setting to C19. Customer Copy Printing Behaviour to ALWAYS PRINT.
