Printer Configuration


Please follow the instructions in the setup videos and plug in your printer. Once you’ve plugged in the printer and attached it to the POS, you should conduct a test print. To do this, make sure the printer is turned off (no blue light). The switch is located at the back of the printer. Hold down the feed button and turn on the printer. One red light will turn on. Once that happens, release the feed button. A receipt will print. The 6th line down is the IP Address. You will need to input this into the POS.


On the POS, login and click on Main Menu > Settings > Device Manager>Printers>Register 1 l (then others in order) Receipt Printer is the default and will always be there. You can always change the name as needed, but do not change anything else unless advised by our support team.

From this screen, you can verify the printer is connected properly because the name will be in green and the plug will appear in green. You can conduct a test print by clicking Test Print. The receipt will print. If you have multiple terminals (registers), click on the Register ID (left toolbar) to toggle between and verify all printers for each register are connected or to add a printer to a specific terminal/register.


To add a printer, click Add printer. Name the printer (i.e. Bar) and enter the IP address located on your Self Test receipt. Select the number of copies for that printer to print (1, 2, or 3). You can even mirror the receipt on other printers. Click Save once complete and the new printer will appear on the printer screen. If a printer is not connected properly, it will appear in red and will have an X through the plug icon.
