Authenticate Your Terminal on TSYS


Terminal authentication will help prevent unauthorized access to your merchant
Point-of-Sale (POS) device by requiring an authentication code along with your ZIP
code. This is entered at the POS terminal before the first transaction immediately
following a full download. Any time a POS device receives a full download, the
terminal must be authenticated. Only one POS device can be authenticated to one
Terminal ID (TID) at a time. Follow the information listed below to authenticate
your terminal.
