How do I know what type of terminal I'm using?
Your terminal type is very important when understanding functionality, EMV card acceptance, downloads and support. Below are a couple of examples of how to identify your terminal type:
Just above the upper right hand corner of the screen is the model number Vx520. If the terminal has 4 LED’s at the top of the unit then the terminal has contactless communications (for Apple Pay, Google Pay, etc)
Just below the screen located in the middle is the model number iCT220 or iCT 250
Verifone Vx520 Terminal Download Instructions
Full Download – VX520 Standard
Please follow these instructions any time a full download is to be performed with the exception of an application upgrade (see Full Download – VX520 Application Upgrade instructions below). You can download this terminal via a standard analog telephone connection (Dial) or through an Ethernet connection (IP). The recommended download method is over IP as these files can be quite large.
Full Download – VX520 Application Upgrade
An application upgrade occurs when you take a terminal with an existing Vantiv application and replace that application with a newer version. Since a previous full download has been performed the Verifone terminal should retain the download parameter configuration. In most cases, this will eliminate the configuration steps from the process. You will need to ensure the terminal file has been upgraded at the host (Vantiv Download Server) before proceeding.
