How to set up and transact using the iKhokha Shaker Solo

The first step to getting set up is making sure the Shaker Solo has the 3G SIM card in it.

(Note. The machine is delivered with the SIM card already in the card machine.)

You need to then switch on the device by holding down the power button. Then follow these steps:

  • Your device will read “press any key to start
  • Press on the green button
  • It will then read “purchase
  • Press the green button
  • Enter amount
  • Press the green button
  • Insert or swipe card & enter pin
  • Press the green button
  • The transaction will either be approved or declined
  • Customer receipt will be printed automatically

You will have the option to print a merchant receipt as well.
