   OPOS is not supported.

   Report Printers

  • Laser - HP Business Grade (Used for graphical plain paper folio, registration forms, and all other reports. Recommended for all Windows Users).
    Use ONLY HP printers that are network compatible and have full PCL support.
    DO NOT USE HOST BASED PRINTERS!!!!!. Contact HP for clarification on printer model descriptions. We won't be able to offer support for Host Based printers because they have known problems that can't be resolved.
    HP says, "PCAnywhere or remote desktop connections are not supported on a host-based printer, HP suggests using a non-host-based printer for this type of environment."

  • Brother printers - Because of the number of complaints we receive involving Brother printers, we do not recommend them for use with our software. They are known to spool but never print, print only one copy when more than one is requested, drop multiple print jobs when they are sent rapidly. Not all Brother printers are affected but we can't test each one to be sure they work properly.

  • ***Ink Jet printers NOT recommended due to ink costs***



POS Receipt / Kitchen / Credit Card Receipt Printers:


POS Printer Setup


Epson printers always preferred over any other brand because we have the most experience with them and the fewest problems with compatibility.

  • Impact Printers -  Epson TM-U200, TM-U220 or similar Epson POS impact printer,  Star SP200/300, or other Epson compatible brands.
  • Thermal Printers - Epson TM-T88 (preferred for Credit Card Receipt printing), Star TSP series, or other Epson compatible brands.
  Cloud Hosted customers should only use Epson receipt printers because they print reliably using the Generic / Text Only driver.
Install the printer using the manufacturer's driver, print a test page, and then change the driver to Generic / Text Only and print another test page.
