Device checklist

In order to set up your receipt printer with your desktop, you'll first need to make sure you have all the peripherals needed.

Cables

You will need a power cable for the printer and the supplied USB cable to plug the printer into your computer. If you don’t already have the appropriate USB cable, these can typically be purchased from your local electronics store.

Receipt rolls

Make sure you have 80mm receipt rolls. To load your receipt roll, open the latch on the top right of the printer, place the roll inside and pull some of the paper through before closing the lid.

Cash drawer (optional)

You may also wish to set up your cash drawer at the same time, to do this you'll need a specialized cash drawer cable. This is similar looking to an ethernet cable but is smaller on one end.
