|Datacap Twin Tran Flow Chart
Most cash registers that interface to credit card payments use a Datacap Twin Tran, IPTran, or Dial Tran. If you need to have your new merchant services programmed into your Datacap we can help. First you will need to decide on which merchant services company you want to go with. We have several good companies we work with all the time if you need a reference. If you already know who you are going to use you can call us with a couple pieces of information.
- The Serial Number of the Datacap Twin Tran (or Tran product you have)
- The Var Sheet from your merchant services
- Make and model of cash register you will be connecting to
- How many cash registers you will be connecting to.
There are a few things we will need answered in order to process the order and get your Datacap reprogrammed. Here are some things that should be answered
- Do you accept Tips?
- Do you accept EBT
- Do you accept PIN based debit transactions?
All these items are very important when selecting the platform your Datacap device should be programmed with.
Now a few environmental issues to figure out
- Do you want to use a High Speed IP connection
- Do you want to use a dial up connection
- Would you like to use both?
- If IP can you run a patch cable from Datacap device to router?
If you need help navigating the steps of installing a Datacap TwinTran on your cash register we can help. We can even help connecting you to a merchant processor that will supply you with a low cost Datacap if you need one. Give us a call at 1-800-863-2274

We are just a little bit more then a month out from the new year. Do you live in an area where the sales taxes are increasing and you will need to program your SAM4s cash register or your Sharp register?
We do programming for cash registers over the phone for all commercial Sharp registers and all the SAM4s models. Don’t wait to get in line for the tax change, call early and arrange for a technician to call you back and walk you through the process of changing the sales tax.
Keep in mind you will need you program key and a phone at the register. The program key for a SAM4s is a “P” key or a “C” key as they both will work. For a Sharp cash register is needs to be a “MA” key
To schedule call 1-800-863-2274 and there is a fee for this service. Here are some sites you can visit as well

|SAM4s SPS-520F cash register
Many people ask what the difference is between the 520F and the 530F and the answer is very simple. The SAM4s SPS-520F has a receipt printer and a journal/audit printer (dual station printing) and the SAM4s SPS-530F has a single receipt printer that uses 3 1/8th paper which is the standard guest check paper size.
If you need a journal or audit tape with the 530F then you can turn on the electronic journal which prints to memory instead of a paper.
Other then the printer difference the two machines are the same. They both use the Datacap Twin Tran for credit card interface, they both can interface to computer, kitchen printer, kitchen video, scale and more.
Not sure which is right for you call us at 1-800-863-2274

If you have misplaced your SAM4s cash register manual there is a chance you can get a free download or buy a replacement manual. Some of the newer machine do not come with a manual but rather a CD with the manual on it. Please keep in mind that cash register dealers do not receive extra manuals, only one manual comes with a register for the end-user and the dealer does not get any spares from the manufacture. We either buy them or print them from the file ourselves.
Once you have your manual and you need help we can help you with programming and training. It is not free but it is available whether you bought the register from us or not.
