    We are facing an issue with M010, that Ped is in wake up mode but relative pos application on windows found “PED in Sleep Mode”.

    Does Miura has a separate document to develop a POS application upon Windows OS?

      Hi Pawan,

      I’m sorry to hear you are facing an issue. We recommend contacting Miura directly so that you can find out the most accurate information that applies to your product specs. Best of luck!

          Hello,

          The Miura reader supports both EMV and NFC, and it is PCI compliant. As far as the size, it’s a comfortable size that fits in the palm. Full specs can be found on the manufacturer site. Best of luck!

            This reader worked as advertised, when it worked. I’ve had two die on, both within 6 months. Both getting a “system tampered” error message. They’re not abused, no dropping, always staying on the counter.

            Another weird thing, if the device wasn’t plugged in, and it went into sleep mode, and then was woke up, it would take a few tries until it finally reconnected with the iPad. So I would alway leave it plugged in.

              Does this process off line forced sale transactions? These typically have a 6 digit authorization provided and entered.

                Hello Dennis!

                The Miura M010 should be able to process offline sales transactions as long as it’s integrated into a POS system that allows it. Ultimately, your POS system is the true “gate keeper” of that functionality. Hope that helps!

                  How about showing the gratuity and tip options on this device? Is the screen size enough for displaying all the information? Please let me know your thoughts on the screen size in general.

                  Thanks

                    Hi there!

                    The screen on the Miura isn’t large enough to display tip options, nor is it designed to do that! Instead, the app (and therefore whatever smartphone or tablet your using) manages all the tipping options as well as any signature capture.

                    Hope that helps!

                      I have two Miura devices from Paypal but am considering changing over to Square. Do you know if I can use the Paypal Miura devices with the Square app or do I need to purchase new Miura readers from Square?

                        Trevor,
                        To be honest, this isn’t something we’ve ever encountered before, so it may be a bit outside of our expertise. I’d rather not give you an answer that I’m not too certain about. If you happen to figure this out on your own, please let us know what solution you find so we can learn how to answer something like this in the future. In the meantime, I’d suggest contacting Square directly and asking them. Best of luck!

                            Hi Angelo,

                            Unfortunately we do not sell products, we review them so our readers can make informed decisions. You may want to contact Miura Systems directly to inquire about making a purchase.

                              Is the PIN pad only for debit cards, or is the reader compatible with chip-and-pin transactions?

                                Hi Randy,
                                Thanks for asking. The Miura M010 Reader does come with a magstrip reader, a pin pad and an EMV/chip card reader. Hope that answers your question!

                                  “If you’re running the Miura M010 from an iPhone, or you’re using it with a tablet for line busting — meaning no countertop setup — you’re going to have to do the device shuffle. Type information into the phone, put that aside, grab the reader, swipe or dip the card, put that down, grab the phone/tablet to finish the transaction.”

                                  What information? Do you mean product info? Customer info? What if you only want to enter a final sales amount then swipe, chip it, or go contactless? Not sure of the exact use case in each scenario. (My business is such that I provide hand written receipts in a high $ amount but low item count retail environment) Is this the right device if I only want to use a phone to process the transaction, and eliminate my landline/internet connectivity costs from my B&M store. (this does work with Android btw if you go through Control Mobile Inc/STRIPE with the Miura M010 (I am thinking of using a Galaxy s8 with dual line capability). Thanx for any feedback.

                                    Does the Miura m010 charge a percent for each card swipe like the Square does?

                                      Hi Erica,

                                      That’s a great question. The Miura m010 is not a processor itself, it is just a device to swipe the card. You can only get it if you go through Square, Shopify, or PayPal.
