Setting up a receipt printer

If you are using the POS on iOS or Android, and have a Star Micronics receipt printer, we highly recommend you setup the receipt printer (rather than standard device printing) as it’ll print much quicker.

  1. Click Receipt printer, this will open a printer dialog box.

  2. Click Model and select the relevant printer model from the list of supported receipt printers.

  3. For Ethernet receipt printers you need to enter the IP address into the Port field. It must be in the format TCP:192.168.1.70. To find out what your IP address is, see ‘How to find my receipt printers IP address’.

  4. For Bluetooth receipt printers, you need to enter the Port in the format BT:NameOfPrinter.

  5. Click Paper width and select the relevant paper width for your receipt printer.

  6. Click the TEST PRINTER button to test your settings, if valid your printer will print a thumbs up icon otherwise you will receive an error message.

If an error message is displayed, recheck your settings before trying again.

Closing sub products after selection

A product with sub-products opens a sub-product modal when the product tile is clicked on the Sell page.

The setting 'Close sub product modal after selection' controls whether the modal will close after a sub-product has been clicked or whether the modal will stay open, allowing you to add more sub-products before closing the modal manually.

Simply click the toggle on the right to turn this setting on or off.

Display an alert to prevent overselling

If a product or a sub-product has stock control enabled then the setting 'Display alert when overselling' can be used to display an overselling alert in order to avoid any unintentional overselling of a product or sub-product.

Simply click the toggle on the right to turn this setting on or off.

Stock control can be added to products or sub-products via the Airsquare admin area.
