This guide provides step-by-step instructions on installing an Epson TM-T82IIIL Receipt Printer for Mac or PC.

Device checklist

In order to set up your receipt printer with your Mac or PC, 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 set up instructions:

This will take you to the print preview screen. If the TM-T82IIIL is not your default printer, click Change and select the printer from the list.

Once that's been changed you should be able to print out a receipt.


Connecting the cash drawer

Once you've got the printer all set up, you can connect up the cash drawer.

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 from the cash drawer into the receipt printer.

2. Next, navigate to your Devices and Printers window on your computer.

3. Right-click on your receipt printer, select Printing preferences > Peripherals.

4. Use the drop-down menu to select Cash Drawer.

5. Next, select End of Document and click open on both Cash Drawer #1 and Cash Drawer #2

  Tip

If you want your cash drawer to fire before the receipt prints, you can select the Start of Document option instead.

6. Apply these settings and test it by performing a test sale
