Using an Integrated Receipt Printer.

Commerce7 is integrated with the Epson TM-T88VI Receipt Printer.

Using this integration, you can print receipts in the tasting room on the Epson receipt printer. 

If you are going to use this receipt printer - only purchase it from THIS source. There are many fake/knock off devices on Amazon, so we can only recommend purchasing the printer from the following site.

**We do not recommend or support the Wifi connectivity as it is complicated to setup and maintain. Please order the model in the link above that includes the Ethernet connectivity. You will require a cat5/cat6 ethernet cable to connect this to your network.

Set up in Commerce7

To set up this integration, first navigate to your POS profiles in the admin panel and select a POS profile. 

Scroll to the bottom of the selected POS profile to reach the receipt printers section. 

For each receipt printer you'd like to add to a given POS profile, add a "PrinterID" and "Title".

PrinterID: Create your own 6-30 digit, alphanumeric ID. You cannot have spaces or use special characters in this ID (numbers and letters only).  
Title: Give your receipt printer a title. Staff will select a printer by title when deciding which printer to send receipts to. Example titles could be "Printer1", "Counter Printer", etc. 

After entering all your receipt printers, click "Save POS Profile".
