STPI IP/URL Address for WiFi

Enter the IP address or URL of the PC or resource where the STPI Client is installed and running, when accessing it through the local WiFi network.

Find STPI

After entering the IP address or URL, touch this link to verify the communication between your payment terminal and the STPI Client.

Redundant Network

Enable this option to allow the SecureTable application to communicate over both WiFi and 4G/LTE mobile networks. By default, SecureTable will always try to use WiFi networks first, to avoid extra costs from using data over mobile networks. If the terminal is out of range of any known WiFi networks, SecureTable will automatically switch to 4G/LTE mobile network. Enabling this option will also unlock additional settings.

Note Icon

NOTE: A SIM card needs to be installed in the payment terminal to get access to 4G/LTE mobile networks. Also, this option will be hidden if no SIM card is detected.

Auto-connect to LTE

** This settings is only visible if Redundant Network is also enabled.

With this option enabled, SecureTable will offer the option to automatically switch from WiFi to 4G/LTE if unable to reach the POS system during a transaction. This switch will only happen if the application is actively trying to connect to the POS system. It will not happen while the application is idle.

If this option is disabled and there is a WiFi communication issue during a transaction, you will get a generic error message and you will need to manually switch to 4G/LTE and re-attempt the transaction.

STPI IP/URL Address for LTE

** This settings is only visible if Redundant Network is also enabled.

Enter the Public IP addressA public IP address is a globally routable unicast IP address, meaning that the address is not an address reserved for use in private networks. Public IP addresses may be used for communication between hosts on the global Internet. In a home or small business situation, a public IP address is the IP address assigned to the home or business network by the Internet Service Provider (ISP). In this case, it is also locally visible by logging into the router configuration. or URL to access the STPI Client is installed and running, when accessing it through the 4G/LTE mobile network.

Find STPI

After entering the IP address or URL, touch this link to verify the communication between your payment terminal and the STPI Client.

Note Icon

NOTE: The STPI Client needs to be up-and-running. If you are using FIND STPI for 4G/LTE, Port Forwarding also needs to be configured on the router/firewall controlling the access to the local area network.

STPI Port Number

Default: 9999

This is the TCP port number used by STPI. Be sure that this TCP port is unblocked by your network administrator.

POS Type

Tip

Enable this option to have the SecureTable application prompt for tip entry. Disable this option to prevent tip entry. Disabling this option will also hide all the tip-related options below.

Tip Preset (Select percentages)

Configure preset tip percentages that the customer will see when prompted for tip. Up to 3 presets can be configured. If you do not wish to use all of them, presets that are set to 0% will not be displayed to the customer.

Tip Preset Text Size

Select the text size used to display preset tip percentages. Available choices are Normal, Medium and Large.

Tip Threshold

Enter the maximum allowed tip percentage. Any tip amount that exceeds this percentage will require the settings password to be entered.  Setting the percentage to 0% disables the tip threshold validation.

Tip on Tax

Enable this option to calculate the tip percentage from the total check amount, including taxes. If this option is disabled, the tip amount will be calculated on the sub-total instead, which does not include taxes.

Note Icon

NOTE: For the Tip on Tax feature to have an effect, the POS system needs to send both the sub-total and check total as separate values to the STPIClient. If the POS system only sends the check total without the sub-total, this setting will have no effect. The percentage will be calculated on the check total sent by the POS, regardless of the status of this option.

Enable Confirmation

Enable this option to present a dedicated tip confirmation screen for the customer. If this option is disabled, the tip confirmation screen will be skipped when selecting a tip preset or the NO TIP option. If using custom $ or custom % with this option disabled, the tip amount, percentages and resulting totals will be updated in real-time as the customer types the numbers in, but no additional confirmation screen will be presented before the actual payment.

Setting Password

Configure the password used to access settings. This is also the password that will be requested if the customer enters a tip amount that exceeds the Tip Threshold.

Enable Search by Table Number

Enable this option to have the terminal prompt the server for a table number. This allows the SecureTable application to search for all available checks for a given table number.

Enable Search by Check Number

Enable this option to have the terminal prompt for a check number. This allows servers to enter a check number in order to directly access a check, instead of selecting the check from a list.
