How to Set Up Other Printers in Loyverse POS
Loyverse POS works with receipt printers from Supported Printers list. However, for Android, you can try to connect another model, not from the Supported printers list. But be aware that not every printer may work with Loyverse POS!
These are general requirements for a receipt printer to be compatible with Loyverse POS on Android devices:
- support ESC/POS commands same as Epson printers;
- have either Ethernet, WiFi, Bluetooth or USB interface;
- support the status commands or similar functions to check that transmitted data has been completely printed.
Consult printer manual or 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.
