Cash Drawer

A cash drawer must be connected to a receipt printer to open automatically. Otherwise, you’ll need to manually open the drawer using the cash drawer key.

Barcode Scanners

  • Ensure you have enabled barcode scanning from Point of Sale > Settings > Register > Scanning > Barcode Scanning.
  • Any barcode scanner that outputs what the barcode is representing as an input to the register, should work.
  • Blueooth barcode scanners are reported to work, in particular Excelvan BP8150BL.

Magnetic Card Readers

  • Ensure you have enabled credit/debit card scanning from Point of Sale > Settings > Register > Scanning > Credit/Debit Card Scanning.
  • Magnetic card readers work by reading the magnetic strip and outputting the data.
  • The plugin includes a script which parses this data into the relevant fields.
  • At the moment, we have made this compatible with the following WooCommerce sold or developed gateways: Stripe, Authorize.net, Realex, PayPal, Braintree, PayTrace and Simplify Commerce.

Chip & PIN Terminals

Point of Sale does not communicate with any external devices. If you do intend to accept chip & PIN transactions then please do consider that this will be isolated i.e. the total value for transaction will not be sent from the register to the terminal.
