    • A red dot in the upper-right corner of the reader type label indicates no reader connected.


  • If the card reader is not used for more than 60 seconds the card reader automatically goes into the stand by mode (a slow blinking light indicates it's in stand- by mode) and if you open the TotilPay app on your device the card reader gets automatically paired with the TotilPay application (A solid green light indicates the card reader is paired). 
  • Also make sure you are not turning off the card reader manually. When you are not using the card reader after 5 minutes and the TotilPay application is either closed or is in background, the reader will turn off automatically (light will be be OFF) and when you wish to swipe a card, you'll just need to open the app and press the power button on card reader to power ON and it will be paired automatically.
  • Make sure that you have powered on the card reader first and then opened the application so that you do not have to pair the card reader every time and the reader will be paired automatically.
