Connecting Power Diary to a Tyro Terminal

Before connecting your terminal to Power Diary you’ll need to ensure that it has been activated by Tyro.

You’ll need to connect your Power Diary account to your Tyro terminal to begin submitting claims and processing payments using Power Diary and your Tyro terminal. You can connect Power Diary to your terminal by following the steps below.

  1. Log into your Power Diary account and go to Settings Integrations Tyro Settings. If not already done, toggle the slider to enable Tyro. 
  2. On the terminal, go to Menu → Configuration Integrated EFTPOS Pair with POS.
  3. Select the Pair with POS option.
  4. The terminal should then display a Merchant ID (MID) and a Terminal ID (TID). Enter these into the relevant fields in Power Diary.
  5. In Power Diary, click Commence Pairing
  6. Press the Start option on your terminal. 

And that should be it! If all went to plan you should see a modal indicating that the pairing was successful. Feel free to close this and begin using your terminal


  • You could use any terminal at any location, but you would need to pair the terminal each time (terminal info is stored locally in the browser)

Follow the steps below to add a merchant ID to a user:

  1. Go to Settings  Integrations → Tyro Settings
  2. Select Merchants from the menu.
  3. Click + Add Merchants.
  4. Complete the form and click ✔ Save.
