We are preparing for the release of Payanywhere version 6.3.1, which includes enhancements for contactless EMV transactions, as well as improved stability for our Payanywhere Smart Solutions Suite and the Payanywhere 3-in-1 Bluetooth Credit Card Reader. 

In order to continue processing payments with your Payanywhere  Smart Solution or 3-in-1 Bluetooth Credit Card Reader, you will need Payanywhere version 6.3.1 and the latest firmware on your device.

Prior to the release of 6.3.1, we will push an automatic firmware update to all Payanywhere Smart Solutions. The firmware update will take place overnight, so as to not interrupt business operations.

Tips for updating.

If you’re using a Payanywhere 3-in-1 Bluetooth Credit Card Reader or Payanywhere Smart Solution, including the Smart Terminal Mini, Smart Terminal, Smart Flex, or Smart POS+, we recommend that you:

  2. 2. Close all open apps and keep devices turned on and plugged into power with at least 50% battery life. 
  3. 3. Make sure you are connected to the internet.
