How to Set Up Other Printers in Loyverse POS

Topic: 

Loyverse POS works with receipt printers on the Supported Printers list. However, for Android, you can try to connect to models that are not on the Supported Printers list. But be aware that not every printer may work with Loyverse POS!

These are the general requirements for a receipt printer to be compatible with Loyverse POS on Android devices:

  • support ESC/POS commands that are the same as Epson printers;
  • have either Ethernet, WiFi, Bluetooth or USB interface;
  • support the status commands or similar functions to check that the transmitted data has been completely printed.

Consult the printer manual or the manufacturer website to see if your receipt printer fits these requirements. If so, the printer may work with Loyverse POS; however, there might be special cases.
 

Connect or pair your printer with a mobile device

For Ethernet printer: connect your mobile device to the Wi-Fi router and connect your Ethernet printer to the router via an ethernet cable (details: How to Set Up an Ethernet Printer in Loyverse POS).
