With just a few taps on an iPhone or iPad, OpenNode turns into a fully-functional POS system for accepting Bitcoin or Lightning Network payments. Follow this simple step-by-step guide to get your POS set up today!

A note before we begin: This demonstration is on an iPad, but it has an identical flow on iPhone. 

Step 1: Sign-in to OpenNode on a Web Browser

In order for the POS to work, you will need to be signed in to your OpenNode account on your iPhone or iPad in a web browser.

Step 4: You are Done!

There should now be an OpenNode payment request app on your device's home screen. When you select this icon, you will be able to create a payment request instantly as if you were using a POS.

Remember, you can even export data off OpenNode's platform as a .csv to integrate with Quickbooks or any other accounting software.
