AirPrint Printer Setup

AirPrint Printer Setup

This page will guide you on printer setup, allowing you to print a variety of information, including invoices, quotations, reservations, and receipts, directly from your iPad.

AirPrint is a feature in Apple’s macOS and iOS operating systems for printing via Wi-Fi, directly to AirPrint-compatible printers.

Almost all new printers contain AirPrint technology. To see whether your printer supports AirPrint, check the make and model number against this list.

Begin by tapping on Settings

A warning message will be shown when the app is opened to indicate if one of your saved printers has been disconnected.

Default Second Printer

The default second printer is connected to the Send Order button in the POS module. By tapping that button, the order will be printed to whichever printer has been selected here. However, if no default second printer has been selected, this button will print to the devices’ default printer.

An example of this would be having a printer in the kitchen set as the default second printer, allowing orders to be sent directly from the POS, which may be based upstairs in order to better serve customers, to the kitchen, informing the chef of what to prepare.
