If you are in the market for a receipt printer for your point of sale system at your business, there are some specific things you should be looking for to ensure you get the right one for your needs. Some of these may be things that everyone automatically thinks of, but a few may have never even crossed your mind. Print size and quality are probably a given but did you think about things like how noisy it is. Read on for more tips before you make this purchase because this is equipment you may have for years.
- Firstly, remember that a receipt printer should last you for many years.
- If you want to use this receipt printer for a range of software, please check with the suppliers of these software packages.
- If you are in an area that has bad power, consider a UPS because otherwise the receipt printer will often get a “red flashing light” and worse switches off in the middle of printing.
