'viva.com | Terminal' application Autostart

Information on the Auto launch app toggle.


By default, the ‘viva.com | Terminal’ application on PAX/Paydroid devices is launched automatically when the terminal device is powered on.

However, in some circumstances it may be preferable to suppress this auto-start functionality, giving the user the option of opening an application of their choice, or allowing a third-party application to auto-start instead.

In order to provide this flexibility, a toggle can be found within the app’s settings which can be used to turn this functionality on or off.

This functionality is only available for PAX/Paydroid devices (excluding the Q30)


To toggle this setting, please follow the steps below:

  1. On the main POS screen, click on the hamburger menu at the top-left:

    Auto launch app - 1

  2. Then click ‘System‘:

    Auto launch app - 2

  3. Then click ‘Settings‘:

    Auto launch app - 3

  4. Within the Settings menu, click on the ‘Auto launch app’ item:

    Auto launch app - 4

  5. From here, you can toggle the setting on or off:

    Auto launch app - 5
