Trouble Activating the device in MerchantTrack:
If Activation Code Starts with 'C' instead of 'P' - Get a new device. 'C' is used for Test devices only.
In very rare cases, if activation code was originally provided and then get a red error in MerchantTrack but the device itself goes to the TriPOS screen, but then cannot view the device in MerchantTrack, may have to contact development team to have them look into the logs with the processor and have them remove device, provide the development team the serial number from the device and all the names the merchant goes by (Legal/DBA/Identifier), once development has confirmed removal from the processor, then have merchant try again or activate for them in MerchantTrack when they get prompted for an activation code.
