Tyro Pay@Table

Available in Abacus POS version 2.8.16 and later.


To set up Tyro Pay@Table, you will need to speak with one of our friendly support technicians. They will need to change your Master IP address to be compatible with Tyro Pay@Table, and push settings to your Pay@Table terminal.

Note: Do not attempt to change network settings by yourself, this can have adverse effects on your connection. Speak with a support technician to set up Tyro Pay@Table with Abacus πŸ˜ƒ

How to use

(Reference: How does Pay@Table work?, Tyro)

  1. On Abacus POS, print out the bill and bring it to your table

2. Enter your Staff PIN, this is your Operator ID on Tyro

3. Enter the number of the table you are serving.

4. The order amount will display. Select whether you want to split the bill or pay it in full. If you split a bill, you can still pay with other forms of payment at the POS, however you will only be able to split the bill by dollar amounts instead of specific items.

5. Enter the payment amount then press OK

6. Select whether or not a tip will be provided.

7. Enter the tip amount. Tips are recorded on Abacus.

8. Pay by card

9. You will be prompted to print a receipt

10. You can either continue to pay the order, or hold the partially paid order.

11. If you hold the partially paid order, you can pay the remainder of it on Abacus POS

12. You can further split the payment (by Portion) on the POS.

You should have a separate Tyro terminal (not Pay@Table) stationed at the POS so it can take card payments from here.


Refunds can be made via the POS via the Order History.

In Abacus POS 2.8.100 and later, any refunds will also include tips that were placed in Tyro.
