Be aware that your Solo requires a Wi-Fi connection to update during the set-up process.

How to set up my Solo

After you sign up for SumUp and activate your profile, you can set up your Solo like so:

  1. First up, power your Solo on with the On/Off switch on its right side. It’s the button that looks like the SumUp logo.

  2. Tap the drop-down menu to select your preferred language from the menu and hit “Let's start”.

  3. Log in to your SumUp profile.

  4. You'll be redirected to your Wi-Fi settings so you can connect your Solo to a Wi-Fi network.

    Note: Your Solo can only connect to secure networks.

  5. You'll be prompted to update your Solo. Simply tap "Download & Install" to get started. This will only take a couple of minutes.

Once the update is complete, your Solo is fully set up and ready to start accepting payments.


If you haven’t created a SumUp profile, tap “I don’t have a profile” on the login screen to bring up a QR code. Scan the code or type in the associated address to find where you can create a SumUp profile.
