Taking your first payment

If you want to familiarize yourself with the general payment process before you start selling, try to take a payment yourself.

Whether you’re using the Zettle Reader or Terminal, the same steps apply.

  1. Type in an amount or add a product to your shopping cart in the Zettle POS app
  2. Tap Charge
  3. Select Card as your payment method
  4. Tap the card on the Reader or Terminal or insert the card
  5. If applicable, enter PIN
  6. Check the app screen to see if the payment went through
  7. Choose to print, text or email a receipt, or select No receipt
  8. Make a refund right away

Good to know: If you don’t have a Zettle Reader or Terminal, you can accept contactless payments with your Android phone. Learn more about Tap to Pay.
