Agent Notes

NOTE: The redesigned GoPayment app is only available for iOS5 and higher (which is only supported on 3GS and higher models). Do NOT uninstall the app for troubleshooting if they do not have iOS5 or higher.

Beats Audio™ and Boom Sound™ are mobile applications that manage music and the associated hardware on various mobile devices (including Bluetooth audio). It offers a higher quality and better control over the audio experience on a mobile device by providing more control over the connection to the audio hardware installed on the device. As a result these application's default settings directly impact the ability for GoPayment to operate correctly and will prevent connection to the card reader attached to the supported mobile device.

If the auto-configuration tool does not appear correctly, the GoPayment app will need to be removed, the device cleared and then GoPayment reinstalled. If the configuration tool still does not appear as expected and all other troubleshooting has been performed, contact Tier 2.
