How to start using pyTeliumManager
# Import telium package
from telium import *

# Open device
my_device = Telium('/dev/ttyACM0')

# Construct our payment infos
my_payment = TeliumAsk.new_payment(
    payment_mode='debit',  # other mode: credit or refund.
    wait_for_transaction_to_end=True,  # If you need valid transaction status
    collect_payment_source_info=True,  # If you need to identify payment source

# Send payment infos to device
    if not my_device.ask(my_payment):
        print('Your device just refused your transaction. Try again.')
except TerminalInitializationFailedException as e:

# Wait for terminal to answer
my_answer = my_device.verify(my_payment)

if my_answer is not None:
    # Convert answered data to dict.
    # > {
    # '_pos_number': '01', 
    # '_payment_mode': '1', 
    # '_currency_numeric': '978', 
    # '_amount': 12.5, 
    # '_private': '0000000000', 
    # 'has_succeeded': True, 
    # 'transaction_id': '0000000000',

    #  }
    # }

if my_answer.has_succeeded:

My device isn't working with this package.

  • Make sure you've followed How to enable computer liaison with Ingenico device steps above beforehand.
  • If you're on Windows, make sure you've installed the correct driver.
  • Try every COM port, one by one.
  • On Linux it should be located at /dev/ttyACM0, if not run ls -l /dev/tty* | grep ACM to locate it.
