Jane Payments Terminal Troubleshooting

Here are a few useful suggestions that you can try if you’re experiencing any trouble with your Jane Payments Terminal.

1️⃣ Is the Terminal being charged correctly?

The Terminal needs to be plugged into a wall outlet (with at least 5W power) with the cable that was provided with the Terminal and an adaptor to connect the cable to the wall. The terminal cannot be plugged into a laptop or another device for charging.

Ensure the battery is in the terminal the right way. The customer warning message on the battery will be facing outward. Note: if the battery is already installed, please remove and reinstall it in the device.

For first-time use, please allow your Terminal to charge overnight. You can then leave your Terminal on charge each night, the battery will ‘turn off’ when full. The battery charge status is indicated by an icon on-screen during charging.

To charge the battery, connect the cable provided to the right side of the Terminal (there is a little lightning bolt symbol). You then need to connect the cable to an adaptor to plug into the wall. You can tell the battery is charging in the top right of the terminal screen, you’ll see a little lightning bolt in the battery if it is currently charging.

2️⃣ Have you clicked Pay?

Hitting one of the Pay buttons will prompt payment on the terminal.

3️⃣ Ensure the Terminal and the computer or device you’re using Jane from are on the same wifi network.

To check which network your Terminal is connected to, on your Terminal screen swipe left to right then select Settings. You may need to re-enter the admin PIN (0 7 1 3 9), then select Network. Here you’ll see which network the Terminal is connected to.

4️⃣ Have you updated the DNS settings on your computer?
