Getting Started with a HiSense tablet on retailcloud POS.

Set Up Hardware

With equipment removed from packaging, there are 3 ports on the base of the tablet. One of these will be to connect the power cable for charging the tablet. 

The other will be used for peripherals which will connect by usb (ie. Bar code Scanner, Printer, Keyboard)

It is best to have the tablet fully charged before starting to install the device and loading the POS application.

Connecting Peripherals
Printer - This will connect via USB to one of the peripheral ports on the back of the tablet dock.

Cashdrawer - There will be a cable which looks like a telephone cord, and will be labeled one side "Printer". This will connect to the back of the printer. The side labeled "cash drawer" will attach to cash drawer.

Barcode Scanner - If a USB scanner is to be used, this can be plugged into the back of the tablet dock. If a bluetooth socket scanner is to be used, follow the instructions here for pairing.

PAX Payment device - This will be paired using the IP address off the terminal. Instructions for this are below in the configuration portion of the steps.

Configuring Android settings

Follow the prompts for setting up your tablet.
Upon entering the email used to configure google services, provide this email to the retailcloud associate.
