Receipt Template Sync for Vend Register on iPad
What do I need to know if:
How do I?
The Vend Register iPad app will now use the same receipt template as Vend on your Computer. This means that receipt templates will be consistant throughout both Web Vend and Vend on your iPad.
Important: This feature will replace the current template creation in Vend Register. If you had any specific information in this receipt be sure to include it in your receipt template in Vend Retail Manager
How does this sync work?
The Vend Register app will now use the Receipt template you used to use on the old Vend POS app or currently use on Vend on your computer.
This means that if you use Vend on your computer, receipt templates you have set up here will replace your templates on Vend Register. If wish to edit this receipt template or assign it to a different register you can do so through the Vend Dashboard. For information on this click here.
If you have only ever used Vend Register, a default template will automatically be created in the Vend Retail Manager. If you wish to edit this template or create a new one follow the instructions for setting up and editing receipts below.
How do I set up and Edit Receipt Templates?
To edit your receipt template head to the Vend Dashboard. To do this click the three lined menu button in the top left of the screen and select Dashboard from the sidebar. Next, select 'menu' and navigate to Setup -> Outlets and Registers.
Alternatively you can head to the Safari app on your iPad and sign onto your Vend account from there, or do so through a computer.
Now that we are in the Outlets and Registers page we can scroll to the button and select the standard receipt template. This will open up the edit screen where you can create and customise the receipt template to your liking.

Once you're happy with your template click 'Save Receipt Template'. If you'd like to apply this receipt template to a different register select 'Edit Register' from the Outlets and Registers screen and apply your receipt template.
To set up a new receipt template you'll first need to make your way to Vend Retail Manager. To do this navigate to Settings -> Hardware in the app, select your current printer and click the blue link that says 'You can configure receipt templates from Vend's Retail Manager'.
This will open a link in your iPad's web browser that will take you through to your Vend 'Home' screen. Once here sign into your store and click Setup -> Outlets and Registers
