    Paya Connect - Mock Terminal(s)

    How to Create a Mock Terminal in the Paya Connect UI


    Paya Connect Terminal(s)



    You can add terminals for test transactions on Paya Connect, which allows you to simulate EMV terminal responses. 



    To create a mock terminal, please follow the steps below:

    • Login to Paya Connect (Sandbox) with your credentials.
    • Navigate to ‘Locations’ on the left side of the screen:


    • Search for your location name and click on the location once it populates. 
    • Next, under the ‘Settings’ tab on the far right-hand side, click it and scroll down to ‘More’, and select ‘Terminals’.
    • In the top-right-hand corner, click ‘Add Terminal’:
    • Here, you will enter the mock terminal details such as:
      • Title 
        • Enter a name for your mock terminal (i.e., Katie Test Mock Terminal) 
      • Serial Number 
        • This MUST be unique, typically, a combination of a word and timestamp will suffice. Otherwise, feel free to use unique alphanumeric characters. 
      • Terminal Application
        • Please select ‘Mock Terminal’.
      • Terminal Manufacturer
        • Please select ‘Virtual Device’.
      • Terminal CVM
        • Please select ‘Mock Terminal CVM’.
    • Don't forget to ‘Save’ your changes when finished.
      • You can see the Terminal ID when you click on your newly created mock terminal at the bottom of the screen.
