Settings and Global Settings in PayGo’s Workstation Setup

Settings and Global Settings in PayGo’s Workstation Setup are primarily for connecting with tools outside of PayGo. Most of the time a member of our Support Team will assist you with these settings. Those using PayGo Unlocked may handle these details on their own.
Settings are specific to the Workstation you are working on. Global Settings establishes settings for workstations throughout your retail locations.
