  • Do not use Auth only settings. This will cause your transactions to Auth and not capture
  • If you are trying to pair your swiper, but iProcess is not prompting you to pair a device, delete the iProcess app and re-download, then restart the process
  • If you are having issues with iProcess or cannot open the app, please delete iProcess and start from the beginning
  • Keep each BBPOS device paired to only one of your mobile devices. Pairing it to multiple devices can cause connectivity issues
  • Transactions made on your BBPOS device will not populate within your Bankful gateway. The iProcess app bypasses Bankful and sends the transaction data directly your processing bank
  • Transactions made on your BBPOS device will not communicate with your online store in any way – BBPOS sales will not adjust your inventory and transactions through the BBPOS cannot be managed on your website
