If I don't buy a terminal through WineDirect, how does it connect?

If you didn't buy the EMV device through WineDirect, then it can not connect automatically, however, that does not mean you can't use it. You simply need to manually type in the amount into the EMV device (the WineDirect POS doesn't send the amount to the device) and then manually click an order type that you've set up on the WineDirect POS to complete the order (i.e. you could create an payment type called External EMV Device).
