Intro

With a Payter payment terminal, Charge Point Operators and Site Owners have the ability to offer contactless payment to EV drivers, directly through the charge point. 

The payment terminal needs to be installed, pointed to Monta via API,  and connected to a Team. After this, you can connect multiple charge points to the same Payter device and receive the charge payments in the Team’s Wallet. 

This is a guide that explains how to set up a Payter terminal via Payter cloud integration with Monta as Merchant. If you have an existing hardware integration, it should be removed. If you want to have hardware integration, this is not the correct set up for you. Then, you need to create your own Payter account, where you are the Merchant.

If you are just getting started, we recommend to follow this order of actions:

  1. Create a Team in Monta and add the charge points
  2. Order a Payter payment terminal
  3. Register the Payter payment terminal
  4. Physically install the Payter terminal 
  5. Check your setup in MyPayter
  6. Connect the Payter terminal to the Team and charge points in Monta

Requirements

  • A Team in Monta with a Business or Enterprise Monta Plan
  • A Payter Payment Terminal (Apollo or P6X)
  • Internet connection for the terminal (LAN or SIM card)

1. Order a payment terminal

You can order a Payter P66 Terminal from the Monta Shop

Expected delivery time is about 5 to 7 business days. 

2. Register a Payter Terminal

1. Create a registration in Payter

On this page select the correct Payter Terminal you have – Apollo or P6X. Select to create an account and fill out your company information. Within 5-7 days you should receive a confirmation from Payter that your account has been created. 

2. Fill out onboarding documents

You will be requested to pay the activation fee and will have to pay monthly fees to Payter. Monta will pay the transaction fees (just like on credit cards). Monta will still charge the normal transaction fee agreed. 

Please keep in mind that it can take up to 10 days to get your payment terminal activated by Payter once the form is submitted. 

3. Check your setup in MyPayter

You can see if you have correctly registered your Payter device in the MyPayter Portal. Navigate to your Domain page. 

1. Check your contract and your currency setup 

In the bottom of the page, make sure these two are set to Active:

  • Contact with Payter on the left side
  • Currency setup on the right side

3. Check that the SAM card is identified

If you are using a SAM card as part of the configuration, make sure that it is identified in MyPayter. This means that you will see the SAM card type and serial number on the page of the Payter device. 

2. Check for a firmware update of the Payter device

Click on the settings button and select Push Config to see if your Payter device needs a firmware update.

4. Connect the Payter to the Team  

Now, you need to connect the Payter terminal to your Team and the charge points. This is done in the Team Wallet section of the Team

If you do not do this, you cannot start accepting payments.
