  3. Select ‘Card Machine’ and select ‘Yoco Neo Plus’

If you already have another device paired to your POS, you'll need to first make sure it's been unpaired from the previous smartphone/tablet before it can be paired again.

Integrated with a POS partner?

Using a partner like Lightspeed, Vend, Loyverse or Salonbridge? Start a new transaction in the Sell menu of your POS, select "Yoco card payment" and you'll be directed to the pairing menu. Select your Neo and input the serial number from the back of your machine.


Making Sales

Do a test transaction

Start a new transaction in your POS menu. Tap ‘Charge’ and ‘Card’. You’ll see the sale amount displayed on your Neo Plus, then Tap or insert your card to complete the transaction. Congrats!

Accept Tips

You can accept tip payments from your customers by enabling the tips feature on the Yoco Neo Plus. To activate tips, go to ‘Menu’ >> ‘Payment Settings’ >> ‘Tips On’. Once enabled, you’ll be able to select a default tip percentage, so your customers can easily add an automatic tip percentage when paying. Your customers can also always choose to enter a custom tip amount, if they prefer.



When tips are enabled, the Neo Plus will prompt your customers to choose whether or not they’d like to tip. If they select ‘No’, the transaction will be processed without a tip amount. If they select ‘Yes’, they’ll be prompted to select or enter their preferred tip amount.

Send receipts

Every time you complete a transaction, a message will appear on your Neo Plus, asking if you’d like to PRINT or send a digital receipt via SMS or email. If you select ‘SMS’, the Neo Plus will prompt your customer to enter their cellphone number. If you select ‘Email’, the Neo Plus will prompt your customer to enter their email address.

TIP: You can also send (and resend) receipts anytime from the Sales History, Yoco App or Business Portal.
