The Poynt 5 dock allows Merchants to use their Poynt 5 truly anywhere. This dock remains small enough to fit easily in your hand and provides the ability to print while also charging your Poynt 5 device.
Below we will cover the details of this functionality.
|What comes with the P5 Advanced Cradle Dock:
❏ Poynt 5 Dock
❏ Charging Pad
❏ Power Cord
❏ Receipt Paper Rolls
To charge the P5, place the charging pad for your dock somewhere easy to plug into a power outlet. Allow the dock to rest on the charging pad to attain a full charge. The lights on the left side of the printer will indicate how much charge has been stored by default when on the charging pad. While off the charging pad these lights will not appear. Simply press the small button under the lights to ascertain the status of the charge.
The Poynt 5 dock comes equipped with a built-in printer. When the Poynt 5 is connected to the dock via the USB-C plug, the printer will be available for use by default.
To begin, simply insert a receipt paper roll (there will be a few included).
Step 1: Open the printer cavity door by pulling on the right and left sides of the printer door using your thumb and index finger.
Step 2: Unwrap a paper roll and place it in the printer. Feed a bit of the paper over the edge of the printer door to ensure that the paper doesn’t jam.
Step 3: Close the printer door until it clicks shut.
The Poynt 5 dock comes equipped with a small mirror so that the camera may be accessed for scanning product barcodes or QR-code-based payments even when the Poynt 5 is on the dock. To scan a barcode or QR code, simply hold it up to the small mirror. The mirror will reflect into the camera, ensuring that it is picked up by the Poynt 5 while on its dock.
