This guide provides step-by-step instructions on installing an Epson TM-T82IIIL receipt printer.

Device checklist

In order to set up your receipt printer with your Mac, Windows PC, or Android device, you'll first need to make sure you have all the peripherals needed.

Cables:

You will need a power cable for the printer and an ethernet cable to plug the printer into your internet router. If you don't already have an ethernet cable, ask your printer supplier to include one when you buy the printer, or pick one up from an 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, and to do this you'll need a RJ12 cash drawer cable. This is similar looking to an ethernet cable but is smaller on one end.

Setup

Select the operating system you use below and follow the setup instructions:

  • Downloading and installing the Epson driver for Mac

    1. First, you will need to download the latest printer drivers for your computer. This is specialized software that allows the printer to run correctly on your computer. To do this, go to Epson's website.

    2. Select Mac OS Printer Driver and click Download page.

      Note

    Please ensure that the ethernet cable is plugged in at the back of your printer before continuing to print the IP address.

    • Address: This is where you need to enter your printer's IP address. To find this you will need to switch the printer off and turn it back on, please wait for 20 seconds until the network configuration slip is printed.

    4. Search for Epson in the top right, select EPSON TM Thermal (203dpi), and click OK.

    Once you've put in all this information click Add. Your printer should now be set up and ready to go!


    Enable Receipt Cutting

    Once a receipt is printed, your EPSON printer needs to be set to automatically cut the receipt from the paper roll. To do this, follow these steps:

    1. Head to the following URL: http://localhost:631/printers/. This will take you to CUPS, a network printing service used by Mac computers. It allows you to set up your printers on a network, and customize options such as cash drawer setup.

    The cash drawer connects to your receipt printer and is triggered to open when you finish a cash sale, and the printer prints the receipt.

    To set up the cash drawer:

    1. Plug the RJ12 connector cable (the one that looks similar to a phone line) from the cash drawer into the receipt printer.

    2. As you did when enabling receipt cutting earlier, head to http://localhost:631/printers/

    3. Once in CUPS, Select your printer model (TM-T82IIIL) from the list.

    4. Select from the drop-down menu Set Default Options.

    5. Under Buzzer/Cash Drawer Control choose Open Drawer #1.
