clip0058The selected touch cash registers can be connected to standard payment terminals, but also to the SumUp terminal. To get the SumUp terminal without a monthly fee and with no contract, register at this website. When registering, you have to enter the delivery address, payment information and also information on your company.

Below you may find information on how to order the SumUp payment terminal and how to set up Dotypos to communicate with it. When configured correctly, SumUp is displayed just as another payment method that can be used for standard order settlement in the settlement dialog.


The SumUp terminal is now supported on 8", 10" and 5" touch cash registers and it is also supported by the Mobile waiter. To be supported for 14" cash registers, a new firmware version must be uploaded (do not apply to new orders of cash registers). If you want to use SumUp together with your current 14" cash register, contact us please.


I do not have the SumUp terminal yet


Go to this page and click on the button Get started now. You will be re-routed to the login dialog. There you enter your email address and choose your login password. These credentials will represent your SumUp account, so write them down, as you will need them to set up the cash register when your terminal is delivered. To create a SumUp account, you have to agree with the company’s business conditions and personal data processing.




Select the payment terminal type and follow the displayed instructions. Then you have to enter the delivery address and payment information. When the payment is processed, you receive the payment terminal at the entered address. The final step is to fill in your profile with the company information, personal information and bank information needed for payment remitment. And that’s it.




Once you get the SumUp payment terminal, follow the instructions described below.


I already have the SumUp payment terminal

To communicate with the SumUp terminal, Dotypos uses the SumUp® Driver that has to be installed on the cash register first by using the application Dotypos Marketplace. After installation, SumUp appears in the cash register as another available payment method. Just activate this method and log into your SumUp account. Below you may find the whole procedure in individual steps:


From the main screen of the touch cash register, open the application Dotypos Marketplace, find the SumUp® driver and click on the button INSTALL. Wait until the installation is finished.




Now open the Dotypos cash register application, go to the Application settings and tap on the item Payment settings. In payment methods, you will also see the option SumUp, activate it and then click on SumUp® settings.




The option SumUp® settings contains only one option, which is the button LOGIN. So click on this button and enter your SumUp account credentials. You selected your credentials when you ordered the payment terminal.




After login, the driver finds the terminal and a numeric dialog appears. These numerals must correspond with the last numerals on the tag at the terminal bottom. Once you confirm, the cash register will automatically connect to the selected terminal.




The terminal can be changed at any time in the SumUp® settings, with the button CHANGE DEVICE. This option is useful, e.g. when you buy a new terminal.


To find the new device, just click on the displayed terminal.




If you performed everything correctly, in the settlement dialog the new payment method SumUp will be available. To settle an order by card using the SumUp payment terminal, just click on it. Then Dotypos connects to the payment terminal and initializes the card payment.




For communication between the cash register and the SumUp payment terminal, Bluetooth is used. So connecting the terminal to the cash register does not depend on the network coverage of your establishment. The SumUp terminal does not have to be paired with the cash register in advance. Pairing will be done by selecting the terminal (step 4 described above) after logging in directly in the driver.
