Chapter 1. Introduction

Chapter 2. Before You Begin
Section 1. Ensure TouchBistro Has Access to the iPad Camera
Before you open TouchBistro, ensure TouchBistro has permission to access your iPad camera.
From your Home screen, find and tap Settings.
Scroll the left side to the bottom. Locate and tap the TouchBistro POS icon. If Camera is not enable, enable it. Swipe up from the bottom of the screen, or tap your Home button to return to your home screen and open TouchBistro.
Section 2. Ensure Venue is Connected to the Internet
You will need to be connected to the Internet to use SmoothPay. To check if your iPads are connected to the Internet, access Admin | Admin Settings.
On the initial TouchBistro screen, there should be a Yes next to iPad Connected to Internet. If this is no, ensure your Internet is up and running. If your venue was never set up for external Internet access, you will need to acquire Internet access and plug your supported router into your Internet modem.
