Printer Setup

 

Connectivity

Pocket waiter supports WiFi or ethernet connected receipt printers.
Most of the cheap receipt printers on Amazon that say they support Bluetooth are not supported by Apple - so to avoid confusion and wasted effort, we've currently disabled Bluetooth printing.

 

Network

If you have more than one network in your restaurant, make sure your iPad and your receipt printer are on thenetwork the customers use.

 

Printer Setup

Setting up some of the cheaper receipt printers can be quite frustrating.
To avoid the frustration, make sure you get a receipt printer with a configuration program.
Most of the cheap receipt printers are configurable via a windows based program through a USB cable.
If you don't have access to a windows computer, make sure you purchase a receipt printer that can be configured in other ways.
