Manage payment devices

Manage pairing and viewing payment devices like the card reader.

For the card reader solution, you need to add specific metadata to your Android POS app. You also need to present a device management UI for pairing your mobile device and the card reader, connecting to the card reader, and viewing card reader details.

Use or create a UI for device management

To use the card reader, store staff needs to pair the mobile device running the Adyen Android SDK with the card reader. The Adyen Android SDK provides a built-in UI for that.
Store staff will also want to see an overview of card readers and view details of the card reader they are using. For example, to check the battery charge level. The Adyen Android SDK also provides a built-in UI for that. Here are some example screens.

To handle the device pairing and viewing of device details, you can:

Use the built-in UI

To use the device management screens built into the Adyen Android SDK:

  1. Initialize the device management SDK (possibly in your own Application.onCreate()).

    DeviceManager.INSTANCE.init(context = context)
  2. Call the following code.

    DeviceManagementActivity.start(activity)

Custom UI

If you intend to build your own UI for device management:

  1. Initialize the device management SDK (possibly in your own Application.onCreate()).

    DeviceManager.INSTANCE.init(context = context)
  2. Use the DeviceManager interface to obtain all the necessary information.
    Refer to the Adyen Android SDK code for details.

    Ensure that it doesn't take more than three taps for users to reach the screen containing regulatory information.
