These are the steps for Customers to take who are re-starting their payment terminals for the first time in a while. 


Make sure that all cables are firmly connected to the terminal and if applicable the battery is charged (it should be charged for at least 1 hour before switching the terminal on) before powering up the terminal. 
Once you have powered up the terminal, please select the model below to see more guidelines for set-up.


Once the terminal is successfully switched on, it is likely that you will get a message on the terminal saying “TERMINAL IS CALLING THE TMS SYSTEM THIS MAY TAKE A FEW MINUTES”. Press the green enter button.

This will enable the terminal to receive important downloads, including the contactless increase to £45. 

Once any required downloads are completed the terminal should automatically take you to the ‘Enter amount’ screen. Attempt a 1p test transaction with your card and if the transaction was successful, you are ready to go.

Cleaning your Spire products



Switch off and unplug the mains power supply unit from the terminal, Pin Pad, charging station and WiFi access point where applicable. Carefully note how cables are connected and disconnect them before cleaning.

Apply antibacterial spray to a clean, soft, non-abrasive, low lint cloth and wipe carefully.

Antibacterial wipes can be used with light pressure so as to ensure that liquid does not enter the terminal.
